Most people will "over breath" and inhale more than they exhale. Especially during times of stress, if you are not getting the proper oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange, it will make you feel out of breath and then you will try to inhale more (ie:hyperventilating). Did you know? For deeper relaxation it is actually MORE important to exhale, fully exhaling increases lung capacity giving you a deeper breath
