Ac­cord­ing to ex­perts, when you are rest­ing or sit­ting still, your lungs are only func­tion­ing at 50 per cent of their ca­pac­ity. You can boost your lung health by tak­ing deep breaths us­ing your di­aphragm (the mus­cle that sep­a­rates your other or­gans from the lungs). Deep in­hala­tion is be­lieved to in­crease lung ca­pac­ity, and it is a tech­nique used by singers. If you're a smoker, it goes with­out say­ing that this de­creases your lung health and has as­so­ci­ated health risks.
