'Hardly/scarcely have time to breathe' nghĩa là rất bận (to be very busy); không có thời gian để thở.

Ví dụ
JMC staffer Mohammad Aslam said that he would hardly have time to breathe while issuing papers at the fair.

Between new cast members and an old sibling rivalry, we hardly have time to breathe between one dramatic moment and the next.

Shruti Hassan: I'm really extremely, truthfully, totally single! Between working in three industries, I hardly have time to breathe, much less be in a relationship.

I had an extremely tight deadline and I was contacting these restaurants during the height of their season. They hardly have time to breathe in the summer and here I was asking them for recipes, photo shoots, edits to recipes, background on their restaurants and more. As you can imagine, it was challenging. I got my fiftieth restaurant just in the nick of time.
