In brief: Shallow breathing

People have difficulty breathing and may be reflected as shallow breathing for several reasons.
The incidence of lung disease such as asthma and COPD has increased due to things such as smoking and pollution. Individuals with lung disease have more difficulty breathing and it uses more energy so they tend to take small frequent breaths.
