Lung Health

Every day we breathe about 22,000 times. Most of us never stop to think about our breathing, it’s just something we do. We know that more than 50% of all Australians rarely or never think about the health of their lungs and Lung Foundation Australia encourages Australians to take the health of their lungs as seriously.

08-JOBA healthy set of lungs is fundamental to a healthy life; yet the simplest daily action – breathing – is often taken for granted or overlooked. Just One Breath is both a celebration of positive health and well being and an invitation for everyone to think about the importance of healthy lungs, and the power of breath for a life of vitality.

Symptoms of lung disease tend to creep up slowly and people automatically adjust their daily activities to accommodate or reduce their symptoms rather than getting help. Lung Foundation Australia encourages people to take our simple two minute online Lung Health Checklist.
