We do it non-stop and for the most part we aren't thinking about it about 16 times per minute.  Breathing is essential for life and although it is involuntarily, there's a pretty good chance you're not breathing properly. Generally we take shallow and incomplete breaths and although it get the job done, it can also be a sign of a lot of tension and stress.  The muscles in your face, chest and shoulders are usually tense when we are under pressure; all area that should be moving when we take a breath in and out. Also you should breathe from your belly, not your chest.  Breathing deeply from your diaphragm, rather than in shallow inhales from your chest, ignites the body’s relaxation response and is the single most important thing you can do to reduce everyday stress. So when you think about breathing, make sur you are doing it properly and perhaps you won't need to reach for the aspirin when you have a tough day!
