Breathing with your diaphragm helps your lungs expand so that they
take in more air. Lying on your back, put one hand on your belly and the other
on your chest. When you breathe in, push your belly out as far as possible. You
should feel the hand on your belly move out, while the hand on your chest does
not move. When you breathe out, you should feel the hand on your belly move in.
