In brief: Try yoga

Yoga will teach you to be aware of your breathing and then it becomes a subconscious activity.
You need to retrain your mind and give your body muscle memory. Commitment is a reminder to pay attention. Start with a basic yoga dvd or beginner class and become aware of using your body and mind together.
