Fall is a welcome time of year for many. The beautiful colors, the cooler temperatures, lower humidity levels, and the comforting fall flavors are all reasons to get excited about this time of year. However, with the changing of the season, we must keep our eyes on our wellness goals. October is Healthy Lung Month, and with almost 37 million Americans living with chronic lung disease, what better time than now to focus on our lung health.
Many of us do not spend much time thinking about our health or our state of wellbeing. Unless, of course, we or someone we care about is dealing with health issues. However, each of us should make health a priority, given the immense impact our health has not only on ourselves but those around us.
