This relaxation technique will help improve your breathing naturally. Do it with concentration.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.

I was born with severe asthma and over many years I have learned that the gasping for air - long inhaling breaths- are in fact not helpful for feeling tight chested asthma. Even though the impulse to inhale as much air as you can is a natural reflex,in my experience makes the asthma worse. My suggestion is to learn how to breathe differently and learn how to exhale better. You may want to learn the Buteyko method , it worked for me. Sleep in a clean bed and eat liight food and when possible exercise. Good luck.
