If you suddenly can’t breathe, identifying shortness of breath causes, is really not your top priority!
You are GONNA call 911 … aren’t you?!
If that’s your problem I’m hoping you are NOT surfing the internet looking for your solution!
However, if your situation is occasional and does not feel emergent but is significant enough to send you searching for answers, let’s see if we can get you some.
Maybe you experience shortness of breath with public speaking and/or when you climb stairs.
Learning how to project your voice won’t help if you don’t remove the cause of your breathlessness.
Generally, you probably think mild shortness of breath is caused by anxiety or being out of shape. BUT, don’t assume shortness of breath causes are not serious just because they don’t feel serious!
Shortness of breath can go from an annoyance to a desperate struggle for life in a moment!
Even if it isn’t life threatening, it can certainly take the power out of an otherwise inspiring speech! Shortness of breath is never a good thing!
