When an activity makes you short of breath, the temptation may be to stop doing that activity. However, just the opposite is true. Inactivity leads to weak or deconditioned muscles. Weak muscles use more oxygen. Soon you find yourself experiencing shortness of breath with less activity. Exercise actually helps you strengthen muscles and improve your ability to breathe.
