Suck It In To Suck It Up!

This Sparked Me!

You know how people double-over and grab their knees when they're out of breath? Instead of doing that, next time try doing the opposite--stand up straight and suck in your stomach, pulling your belly button in toward your spine and breathe normally, expanding and contracting your chest. I find that not only does this help me catch my breath, it improves my posture and strengthens my abs all at the same time!
