Anxiety may cause shortness of breath but this is characterized by no significant breathing symptoms with activity but the shortness of breath sensation is more apt to occur at rest with tendency to take sighing type of deep breaths often. If this is your pattern, stress management and meditation therapy would help. Referral to a psychologist or psychiatrist is recommended.

consciousness about automatic bodily processes can temporarily interfere w/them. Please see your doc to rule out medical conditions. Yawning is similar to deep breathing in that both create a larger intake of oxygen. A clinical psychologist can help w/stress management. Peace and good health. Belly breathing done in yoga or qigong can help. Talk w/someone who does that for help. Don't strain
