A few months ago I was experiencing shortness of breath - I just felt like I couldn't fill my lungs to capacity unless I yawned or really tried, so I was yawning all day and constantly feeling like I couldn't breathe. I went to the doctor, they ran a bunch of tests, all said "everything's good!" but breathing was still rough. I had put exercise on hold because of it, but with doctors saying I had no issues, I figured "meh, might as well try again". Trying again was exactly what I needed to do, because a couple months later I no longer am feeling that symptom and my lungs feel awesome. I don't know if it was my lungs physically needing to be challenged, or if it was stress induced and exercise helped that, but I can absolutely say that exercising has greatly helped my breathing.

Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

Do you feel like you can breathe better after doing cardio? After running and biking I feel like my lungs have expanded and breathing feels amazing. It sounds silly but this has always my favorite thing about exercising, especially running. Has anyone else experienced this?
