awning may just be a mundane thing for a majority of us, but there’s so much more to it than an action often that’s socially associated with rudeness. According to Gwyneth Paltrow, you should not suppress your yawns.
People tend to suppress yawning because it is considered as an expression of boredom or rudeness, but for some reason, yawning feels so good. Michael Lear, a yogi, explained to Paltrow that yawning is “a very important mechanism for releasing stress.”
This conversation with Lear inspired Gwyneth Paltrow to write about some yawning instructions on her lifestyle website Goop.com.
To date, no scientific back up can be related to this theory, or other yawning theories for that matter. Some research studies suggest that yawning is related to lack of oxygen as well as for cooling down the brain. If that is the case, then people who yawn may be actively using their brain and are attentive rather than bored.
Now you have a good reason to release that yawn. Whatever the social consequence, you can simply open an interesting conversation about its health benefits and the secret power yawning as suggested by Gwyneth Paltrow and Michael Lear.
