Every drowsy afternoon, I yawn when I’m sleepy and tired or bored. Why is he yawning with his mouth open and sighing? And is yawning really contagious to the people around you? Today, I’m going to talk about yawning so funny that I can’t yawn at all.
Usually you feel sleepy and yawn when you feel tired or bored.
There are various reasons for this yawn. First of all, yawns to give your body more oxygen.
As soon as our bodies get tired, we lack the amount of oxygen that we send to the brain, and when we yawn loudly, our brain function becomes more active and our consciousness becomes clearer.
And yawning helps the brain relax in stressful or tense situations because the temperature of the brain decreases slightly.
The process of cooling the overheated brain due to various activities is yawning. The fact that I yawn without realizing it may be a sign that I need a break.
Why tears when yawning?
There are times when you tear up when you yawn.
What does yawning have to do with tears? Does yawning make tears flow or moist eyes?
When we yawn, we open our mouths wide using lower jaw muscles. As the muscles between the jaws increase, you press down on the tear bag on the side of your eyes, and you start to cry in the tear bag.
Even if you yawn without opening your mouth wide, the facial muscles move and stimulate the tearful pouch, which causes tears to flow or form.
However, the amount of tears stored in the tear bag is limited, so if you continue to yawn, you will rarely shed tears.
Will yawning be contagious?
When someone yawns next to you, I don’t know why, but there are times when you yawn.
Is yawning contagious? Yawning is transmitted in a unique way, unlike other diseases. It is said to be transmitted through empathy.
As a result, yawning is more contagious if you have a special relationship or if you can relate to the other person’s feelings better.
A study found that about 50 percent of people who watched the video of yawning imitate it.
As such, the transmission of yawning is similar to the way you laugh when you see someone else laughing in a funny situation. Isn’t it fun to yawn to check your close relationship with others?
Is yawning okay with me?
Usually, you yawn when you feel sleepy or tired because you don’t get enough sleep.
Even though you sleep enough and are not in a boring situation, yawning over and over again may be a sign of abnormalities in your body, such as a precursor to a stroke.
Stroke is a fatal disease caused by clogging blood vessels in the brain, which can cause frequent yawning due to poor oxygen supply.
A single stroke like this causes neurological abnormalities such as motor disorders and sensory disorders, and in severe cases, aftereffects remain, so it is important to detect and treat them early.
If you keep yawning strangely, you’d better find out the exact cause.
Continuing yawns can also be symptoms of diseases such as brain tumors, epilepsy, and migraines, so you’d better visit the hospital as soon as possible.
You didn’t know there were so many stories about yawning that didn’t mean anything special, did you? If you feel drowsy or bored at this moment, stretch yourself and yawn loudly. The temperature of the brain goes down and oxygen is supplied, so you can feel your mind clear.
