Psychologists say sighing in general is a signal of an unexpressed feeling, most commonly exasperation. It could also be anger. In any case, when people are feeling some sort of stress or sadness, they tend not to breathe as deeply as they normally do and deprive their bodies of oxygen.

It’s actually that people hold their breath when they’re stressed. Then they sigh when a more primal part of their brain takes over to regulate breathing.
