What causes shortness of breath?

When I breath, i feel like my lungs are not completely filled up with oxygen and I tend to do a deep breathing to satisfy it. it happens just on a normal day even as I type my question right now. I don t have any history of asthma not even in our family. This started about 2 weeks ago but I don t have a breathing problem when I sleep. What s the possible cause of this.
