How do you feel?
You’ve been told you’re having an asthma attack.
But there’s another reason you might have trouble breathing, or worse, feel as if your lungs are being suffocated.
Air travel is one of the most stressful jobs in the world.
And the stress of travelling can be overwhelming for some, as a new study from the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Public Health shows.
Researchers found that air pollution causes more stress than any other major medical condition, including stress-related illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke.
Air pollution and the stress that comes with it are both known as climate-related stress, says Dr. Mark Schmitt, a professor of health policy and management and a co-author of the study.
He says the study found that people with asthma and COPD were both more stressed than those without.
“We can predict this by looking at how the severity of asthma symptoms increases with air pollution,” he says.
“The more severe the symptoms are, the more likely you are to have asthma symptoms and be stressed by air pollution.”
Schmitt says that in some cases, air pollution can exacerbate other conditions, such as asthma.
“It could be the case that you’re more susceptible to asthma symptoms because of the stress,” he explains.
Schmitt and his co-authors say air pollution exacerbates some of the symptoms of asthma, such a cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, and shortness to breath.
He also says that, if you’re suffering from asthma, you should try to avoid traveling if you can.
“If you have a history of asthma and asthma is exacerbating asthma, then it’s more likely that you will have more asthma symptoms,” he advises.
“For those with COPD or asthma, it’s less likely that they’ll be able to travel to certain locations, such in places where there’s a lot of air pollution, such an area.”
Air pollution is not the only stress to breathe into, however.
The stress of driving and staying at home is also higher than the stress from the airline.
Airline workers are expected to be more stressed and stressed out than passengers.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the average worker experiences 11.7 stressful events per day on average, compared to 6.9 for passengers.
According to a survey by the American Hospital Association, an average of 10 percent of employees work at home.
That means that nearly half of American workers are living at home at any given time, and they are stressed out.
In fact, the National Transportation Safety Board recently concluded that the number of people who were killed in a car crash was up by 7 percent in 2016.
“It’s not just about the stress they experience on the job, it is the stress to stay home from home, which is a very common thing for some people,” says Schmitt.
Airbus says it has made significant changes to its airline schedule in order to make sure air quality stays at its highest levels.
It now uses “smart” technology to monitor its air quality.
“We’ve had a number of initiatives to improve our air quality, to ensure that we have a healthier air, and to improve how we manage our air,” says Paul de Maistre, a spokesperson for Airbus.
“To keep it as safe as possible, we will continue to be vigilant and continue to take action to protect our passengers and staff.”
Schitt says he hopes that in the future, passengers will be more comfortable in air travel, and will be able see that the airlines are doing their jobs well.
“I think passengers will understand that air travel is not a job, and that the stress and the strain of that job is not what makes air travel work for most people,” he adds.
Airbnb has also started providing air travel for people who don’t have access to hotels, and other Airbnb services have begun providing the same services for guests without air travel.
Air France says that it’s increasing the amount of time guests stay at home from 20 minutes to 40 minutes, which will allow guests to be as comfortable as possible.
The company also says it’s looking into other ways to reduce the stress for passengers who are unable to stay at their hotel.
Air Canada says it will be introducing an app that lets customers check in at their destination at a designated time, rather than waiting until they arrive at their final destination.
“The app will be a companion to our app and will help our guests with booking and managing their stay,” says Air Canada’s CEO, Alain Coronel.
