In brief: Inhalers...
Bronchodilator and steroid inhalers both serve to decrease asthma symptoms.
Avoidance of allergy triggers is also important. Do not smoke and quit smoking if you do. Exercise with your doctor's input as some asthmatics need special precautions to exercise but exercise is helpful. Follow doctor's instructions.

In brief: Triggers, Inflammatn
Identify triggers (allergies/get tested & irritants) - pursue targeted avoidance.
Establish an optimal anti-inflammatory regimen suitable for your current disease severity (see an allergist) with potential for future step-down after demonstrating optimal disease control for at least 3-6 months. Breathing exercises/yoga can make you feel better but the above steps are crucial for disease control.
