Stay well with asthma in the new year

Don’t let asthma stop you achieving your New Year goals

If you’re managing your asthma well, there should be nothing to stop you getting on with your New Year’s resolutions.

Don’t forget to add some goals for your asthma too: 

Top 3 asthma resolutions

1. Book an asthma review

A once-a-year asthma review is a chance to update your asthma action plan and get your inhaler technique checked. Make sure you’ve got yours booked in

2. Start using an action plan

If you haven’t got one yet, now’s the time to download an asthma action plan. Ask your GP or asthma nurse to fill it in with you.

Using an action plan could cut your risk of ending up in hospital with an asthma attack, which means you can start the year managing your symptoms better.

3. Get into a good asthma routine

Start the new year with a routine where you’re taking your asthma preventer medicines every day as prescribed. If you do this, you’ll cut your risk of symptoms and an asthma attack. If you have trouble remembering, try keeping your preventer inhaler next to something you use every day like your hairbrush or car keys.

If you manage your asthma well, you can look forward to the year ahead without symptoms getting in the way.
