Why is Yawning Contagious?

Have you ever wondered why yawning is so contagious? We all know it’s like a domino effect – but we don’t really have solid evidence on why that is.

Some scientists believe that yawning is a form of social communication. It’s a way for our bodies to synchronize and bond with those around us. So when you see someone yawn, your brain interprets it as a signal that it’s time to get some sleep. It’s like a low battery warning for your body.

But there are those people who seem immune. They can be in a full room of people yawning and not feel a single urge to join in. Are they superhuman? A robot? They’re probably just not paying attention to anything going on around them.

Yawning is a universal experience that connects us in a slightly awkward way. The simple solution… Go take a nap.

By the way, you can also use it to your advantage if you want to get someone to stop staring at you.
