What song would you sing in the shower?
This week (Monday 22nd June – Sunday 28th June) is Love Your Lungs Week. With research suggesting that lung disease affects 1 in 5 people in the UK, it’s more common than people often realise.
But how can you take steps to increase your lung capacity?
An article said:
The most common way to increase your lung capacity is by doing regular exercise, even if this is just a 20min walk or some gentle stretching every day.
On the other hand, having a good sing can also be beneficial. If that’s not a good excuse to sing in the shower, then I’m not sure what is!
