holding my breath

I hold my breath so much when I am working, like a child sticking his tongue out to aid concentration, and then find that rather than die, there is a sudden exhalation.  I get so involved in process that however silly it sounds, remembering to breathe, is a problem. Working in my studio is like being in a bubble, and after an intence period of work it is sometimes quite a shock to lift up the head and connect with the outside world, and I suppose that is a problem for all creative lone workers. We are I guess happy in our own little world.
