Cool Your Brain!
A yawn is a reflex consisting of the simultaneous inhalation of air and the stretching of the eardrums, followed by an exhalation of breath and then looking at your watch!!Yawning (oscitation) most often occurs in adults immediately before and after sleep, during tedious activities and is contagious but what are the Causes of Excessive Yawning
You may think Yawning
just means you're tired
, but are they trying to tell you something! A study has suggested that the reason we yawn has nothing to do with tiredness or boredom, but actually works in order to cool down our brain and help us think a little clearer, apparently a cool brain performs better than a warm brain, who would have thought!
Yawning is involuntary because we do it even before we're born and it's also contagious so What makes us yawn?
You don’t decide
to yawn, your playing out a biological programme!
We yawn unconsciously
We can’t yawn on command but if we've been yawning from before birth it must be doing something important to have survived!
