(HealthDay News) -- If you often feel out of breath or seem to tire easily, you probably should better pace yourself.

Here are suggestions to help boost your energy, courtesy of National Jewish Health:

  • Work slower, and take short, frequent breaks. Don't rush yourself.
  • Find the most efficient way to perform everyday tasks. Don't make yourself work harder than you have to.
  • Break out strenuous tasks into smaller projects, with breaks in between.
  • Breathe slowly and deeply, and avoid short, jerky breaths.
  • Plan your activities, schedule time for them, and relax.
