How to use "Catch one's breath" in context?

Catch your breath means to take a deep breath to restore flow of oxygen to the brain. When we are tired, stressed, or anxious, our bodies release stress hormones like adrenaline which can reduce the amount of oxygen available to the brain. When we don't have enough oxygen, our brain can't function as well and we may start feeling dizzy, lightheaded, or even pass out.
