Breathing. She’s doing it wrong.

Breathing has become strangely fashionable in recent months.
Not only is everyone doing it, they’re talking about it a lot too:
“Just breathe”… “Focus on your breath”… “Breathe your way out of a panic attack”… “Our most powerful weapon against anxiety is our breath”…”BREATHE YOU FOOL, BREATHE, QUICK, THEY’RE COMING, WE HAVEN’T GOT MUCH TIME”
I’ve heard all of these so often lately.
Each time, it seems almost insulting to be told that “breathing” is the solution to my problems.
I mean, I breathe literally all the time. I do it in my sleep. What more do these breath-obsessed zealots want?!
