Emotional Health and COPD

Posted on April 27, 2018

COPD symptoms can send our emotional health into a spiral. While you begin improving your lung health, don't neglect your emotional health. Exercise, meditation, and keeping a hobby can improve your mood. Talk to your doctor if you feel depression or anxiety.

On MyCOPDTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with COPD, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Emotional health is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about emotional health:

Concentrated on me this morning for wellness to reduce my aggravation and stress levels.

Here are some question and answer threads about emotional health:

How do you prevent and stop panic breathing once it starts?

How do you deal with stress without cigarettes?

How do you deal with not being able to make commitments like before COPD?

Can you relate?

Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore? Go to MyCOPDTeam today and start the conversation. You'll be surprised just how many others may share similar stories.

Feel free to ask a question here.
