Do This! The Yawn Cure

(Based on the essays “The Yawn Cure” posted February 8, 2011.)

Neuroscientist Andrew Newberg believes yawning is so important and beneficial to health that he encourages a formal daily yawning practice of twelve to fifteen yawns in a two minute period. Give it a try and see how you feel.

Expand on the Yawn Cure:

Yawning during a heated argument with a loved one or during a tense meeting, can help diminish tension, deflect stress, and create empathy and sociability.

Next time you are in a tense social situation, try yawning and see if the tension diminishes. Post a comment on your experience!
