Chill you out! Yawning relaxes you more effectively than meditation. “More than simply calming you, yawning brings the mind into a heightened state of cognitive functioning,” says Newberg.
Keep You Focused. Yawning before we hit the sack, helps tell our body that it’s time for sleep by regulating our internal clock. So listen to your body and you will be healthier for it.
Enhance Compassion. Studies have shown that yawning can stimulate the part of the brain responsible for empathy and social awareness. Intentional yawning may actually help you be more kind to others.
