Many ways: If your "triggers" are allergy induced-- remove or minimize as many as possible. If exercise induced, talk to your physician about pre-treatment. Pollution and occupational induced asthma should also be discussed. Make sure you also have your rescue inhaler with you and if you use a controller, do not skip any doses. Good luck.
