Focus on breathing at ALL times?

This is meditation in action. Pure and simple. How do we take that new-found quality of calm, clear awareness from our meditation and apply it to everyday life? It might be to improve our sense of performance, satisfaction, fulfilment, or even to reduce the feelings of discomfort for a medical condition. Whatever the reason, here’s where you can share your thoughts.

Focus on breathing at ALL times?

I'm a little bit confused. Some sources say you only need to focus on your meditation object/breathing during the meditation and just be present the rest of the time, while others such as the link below say you are supposed to have certain amount of attention on your breathing att ALL times throughout the day, even when reading or talking.

The only time I've heard the double focus in Headspace is in the Walking meditation of the singles collection, If I remember correctly you were supposed to focus on the sensations of the legs moving (instead of the breathing) at the same time as you observe everything around you.

Anyone know a good way to think of this?
