All the time.
I do have to remind myself to breath correctly...can you believe that!
As a young person growing up, I held my breath a tad....when my stepfather was in one of his moods...it stuck with me, to this day.
Sometimes I just take a huge breath... and my son says ''Mum you ok'', and I just say''yep just breathing''?
I have always held my breath for longer than I should.
I have tried to learn how to do it normally, but
can't seem to get it right.
I'll keep trying :)
I was just thinking today to come back to this question and read other responses. I think I get it now . Never happened with me , but now that I know about it .... ( telling myself not to think too hard)
Yes. It's a very strange sensation isn't it?!
I think it's because it should be an automatic reflex that just happens without having to think about it, so if something happens that makes me think about it, I don't know what to think and that makes me panic. It's not really forgetting how to breathe so much as thinking too hard about it.
I used to have a colleague who would forget how to blink when stressed and got really sore eyes as a result, so we made a pact that she would remind me about breathing and I reminded her about blinking. It worked well...
