4. You let stress affect your breathing.
Stress tends to affect the way we breathe, taking our standard long, deep breaths and turning them into quick, shortened gasps. Not only that, but studies have also shown stress to be connected to overeating and obesity, the latter of which can make breathing even more difficult. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, try taking some time out for yourself. Try meditation, simple yoga poses or just a mindfulness exercise. Anything that allows you to focus on your breathing has been shown to reduce stress.
