In brief: It's normal
We periodically "sigh"(take a deep breath, subconsciously) to expand our lungs and prevent alveolar collapse.
It happens often when we're reading or engaging in a low physical stress exercise.

A natural reflex that your body often does without you being even conscious about it (similar to yawning), but sometimes you sigh voluntarily .
.. Someone once estimated average as two sighs per hour ...
