5 year old takes deep breath every 30 seconds opening mouth wide. Anything to worry ?

Hi my 5 year old daughter very active normal weight and size has started recently to take deep breaths every 30 to 45 seconds by opening the mouth wide (might be a nasal blockage??) When we ask her she just says she like doing it. Does not seam to be causing her any problem. When she is sleeping does not seam to be a problem, and she does not complain of not being able to breath. Please could you please provide any insight

give her small sentences for reading or any work that keeps her busy for 30 minutes. and if you find the same over 30 minutes then it may need some evaluation, if it gets suppressed then its not really a problem, and will respond by practising same.
