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!!
