Every breath is more shallow in the event that you utilise these upper chest muscles. You will, in general, breathe quicker and feel more winded and on edge in the event that you utilise your upper chest muscles instead of your diaphragm. 

You can check on the off chance that you are utilising your diaphragm by feeling just beneath your breastbone (sternum) at the head of your belly (abdomen). On the off chance that you give a little hack, you can feel the diaphragm push over here. In the event that you hold your hand here, you should feel it move in and out as you breathe.
