    breath/breathing, brush/brushing

    Hi,

    Please let me know which one is correct and why

    1. I was focusing on my breath/breathing
    2. I do brushing/brush my teeth every day.

    Thanks

    You can focus on either your breath or your breathing, but I expect you mean the second (breathing).

    I brush my teeth every day.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
