How To Maintain Healthy Breathing In Cold Weather
Cold weather brings unique health challenges. There is less sunlight, and people are trying to keep warm! One big challenge is how to maintain healthy breathing in cold weather. Do you struggle with this, too?
Then you’re in the right place to get help. In this blog post, I’ll share a few natural tips to help you support your respiratory system during the winter! 👇🏻
(( Don’t worry – these all natural tips are simple to do. But they work! It’s what I do to help my breathing stay healthy in cold weather, so I’m excited to share them with you. ))
Wear A Warm & Cozy Scarf
Are you headed outdoors into the cold weather? Here’s my first tip to maintain healthy breathing!
You must wear a scarf to breathe in warmer air. To do this, put the scarf over your nose and mouth and breathe through it. That way you are not directly breathing in the cold outside air.
Think of your scarf as a fun fashion statement, and enjoy the extra comfort it gives your lungs.
And if you want to get EXTRA fancy, you can put essential oils on your scarf for additional breathing comfort! 👇🏻
Hydration Is Important For Healthy Breathing In Cold Weather
Another key to keeping your lungs healthy is staying hydrated.
We hear a lot about hydration in the summer. But it’s not talked about so much during the winter months. Just because it’s not talked about, doesn’t mean you don’t need it. 🙂
Your body is made up of about 60% water, and your lungs are over 70% water. You can see why it’s important to stay hydrated year around.
If you do not drink enough water, your lungs will not be able to function at their best.
But maybe you’re not up for a chilly glass of ice water (brrrr!!!). That’s fine! You can drink warm clear liquids such as essential oil teas. They will count towards your water intake. Or simply drink your water at room temperature.
doTERRA Essential Oils To Maintain Healthy Wintertime Breathing
Natural solutions such as doTERRA essential oils can be a huge help to healthy breathing in cold weather. In fact, I diffuse doTERRA essential oils year around to support my lungs.
Please note that I am specifically talking about doTERRA brand essential oils. There is a large difference in quality from brand to brand, and I want to assure you that doTERRA is the highest quality brand of essential oils in the world.
Use An Essential Oil Humidifier
Along with hydrating your body, you need to think about the air you are breathing in your home! The air is dry in the winter, and that doesn’t help our lungs breathe well.
Using an essential oil humidifier gives you the best of both worlds – essential oil health benefits + adding water to the air. The perfect recipe for easier breathing.
My favorite essential oil humidifier is the Dawn Aroma Humidifier by doTERRA. You can learn more about it here. You get my favorite oils to add to the humidifier right in the bundle – Breathe and On Guard!
