What is your first reaction to a person YAWNING? Are they tired, bored or is their body rejuvenating their brain so that it can function more effectively? According to Patt Lind-Kyle, author of “Heal Your Mind, Rewrite Your Brain”, yawning isn’t rude. With a yawn, what your doing is stimulating a neural area of the brain that plays a major role in being more conscious and self-reflective, and that also aids in relaxation, alertness and maintaining a good memory.
Other positive effects of YAWNING: It helps the brain maintain balance. Research has found that yawning helps cool down an overactive brain:
It can lift your mood..When you yawn, your dopamine levels rise. This activates oxytocin, or pleasure & relationship-bonding chemicals.
So, if someone in your company yawns, don’t be upset or take offense, YAWNING IS A GOOD THING!!
