That's a very generic question. You don't mention what sort of respiratory disorder you have? I'm going to assume you have asthma, as you are posting under the asthma forum. There are many different things you can do to make yourself as symptom free as possible. For starters it is important to identify any trigger/allergies you may have, such as cigarette smoke, dust mites, cat allergy etc. The best is to avoid these triggers, which can be done by removing the irritant/allergy from your environment.

You also need to work with your doctor to determine the best treatment for you. Some people have very mild asthma and only need to take their rescue inhaler every now and again and are symptoms free in between. While others require daily therapy with inhaled steroids and possibly other long acting bronchodilators/leukotrienes to control their daily symptoms. It is important to find what works best for you in order to get control of your asthma. You should not experience symptoms (use your rescue inhaler) more then a few times per week, otherwise you should go to your doctor to get your treatment plan optimized.

Sometimes there are other disorders that can compound/affect your asthma. Post nasal drip, GERD and sinusitis are very common and can worsen asthma symptoms substantially. Therefor it is important to get these conditions treated, so that your asthma can be controlled with the least amount of medication required. It is also important to keep a good quality of life, with little or no asthma symptoms.

And finally a good diet, low stress and proper amounts of sleep certainly contribute to overall health. For some asthmatics having strong emotions or a lot of stress is enough to cause their asthma to flare up.
