How to balance your Life and Work being a COPD Patient?



The adverse effects of pollution are visible in the form of increased health and breathing complications such as Asthma and COPD or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. In fact, if you’ve recently developed COPD and are finding it difficult to handle your disease as well as work life together, then check out some of the tips for better managing your work life, despite being a COPD patient.

Relax Whenever You Can: We’re all leading a very stressful life and often this leaves us with no time to relax. However, if you’re suffering from COPD, then try to take some time off from your busy schedule and relax whenever possible. This will help you in restoring all your lost energies and focus.

Manage your Household Tasks: COPD, if overlooked can cause a lot of distress. Hence, if you have lots of household work to manage, then assign the same to your family members. Also, do most of your household shopping online as that will help you in saving both your time and energy.

Spend time with Family: If you’re a COPD patient who also needs to manage his/her work life simultaneously then try to take out some time for fun and entertainment with your family and friends. Remember, it’s important to relax at regular intervals or your problem will only worsen with time.

Concentrate on the Important Stuff: It’s equally important to check whether you are channeling your time and energies towards the important stuff or not. If you’re doing something that isn’t enhancing your professional and personal life, then alter your ways and put all your energies towards engaging in activities and stuff that are important and beneficial for your mind and body.

Exercise Regularly: Last but not the least, it’s impertinent that you create and follow an exercise schedule. This will not help you in coping with your breathing problems but will also enable you in enhancing your productivity levels.

    I have had emphysema for about five years. I was on oxygen during the day but not at night. I could go about two hours without the oxygen, and then I need it. I had a converter in the house and oxygen tanks for when I go shopping, etc. I am 64 years old and in relatively good health. The doctor said it was caused by a combination of smoking, dust here in Vegas, and 30 years of smog in California. I believed I will always need the oxygen to breathe. I quit smoking 15 years ago. But the damage has been done.
