The importance of yawning

Click me.

Just found this and thought about sharing. Excellent read. I wonder if this can be used to help LD'ing (I thought about posting in Quest, but meh, just a topic about yawning is good enough).

PS: I dare you to read this and not yawn.
PPS: I've just read the word "yawn" so many times that it doesn't sound like a word anymore tounge2

Wow, very interesting, who would say that something seemingly so unimportant and simple actually makes so good to human brain...

Thanks for sharing this! ^^

That was an interesting read.
I'll make sure to yawn before I do anything important from now on.

Thanks for the link, it was an interesting read smile

All I knew about yawning beforehand was that Morgan Freeman said that it helps to deepen your voice tounge2

Also, it says in the article that some people say they cannot yawn deliberately, only after 5 or 6 fake yawns. I find this strange, as I can yawn whenever I feel like it, how about you?

You know what I've read 3/4 of it and I just can't take it any more!
<yawn> whilst reading it I just can't stop yawning. It happens every 5-10 seconds.

Very great read! I will try to adopt (manipulative?) yawning for all kinds of things as it sound really useful.

Oh, and Moogle. I'm not sure about LDing, but when he talks about yawning helping memory recall, it gives me an idea about improving DR. I'll make sure to yawn whenever I get stuck on what happened when. :D

As the article says Acetylcholine is also involved in yawning it MAY even be good for LDing. I'm not good at neurology though. :D

Good read, but I had to fight like a mad woman to resist the urge to yawn tounge2 And I agree the word seemed very strange after many views

Yeah, I can yawn at will. I feel like if I force 5 or 6 yawns I'll just then get a super deep yawn.

And I wonder about yawning while IN a LD, never done that, or ever felt the need. I'll try to remember. Imagine if you're brain goes into turbo and you have a super awesome LD!
