Just add more (swap) partition(s) - or even swapfiles.
Linux will look after you.

Just make a second swap partition, then edit /etc/fstab: just copy the swap line you already have and put in the right partition number.

You could even create a swap file on disk and configure the same in /etc/fstab but that would be a tad slower compared to a swap partition I guess.
