The way I See It
There is nothing like a really good yawn. One with stretching of arms and legs, turning of the head and shoulder shrugging. Of course, a big aah inhale and a nice long exhale with an extended ooh added for emphasis is imperative. Sometimes you have to stifle a yawn to be polite. When this happens the yawn is completely useless; there is no sense of satisfaction or fulfillment just a feeling of imperfection and failure and the obsession to yawn again.
When you are tired and yawn it helps you relax and get comfy for a nice slipping into sleep. I think even dreams are better when they are preceded with an all out yawn before going to sleep.
If you are bored a big yawn fills your lungs with fresh air and that takes some of the tired boredom out of your brain. It also tells whoever is doing the boring (and sometimes it is yourself) to move on with whatever it is they are trying to do. If they (or yourself) don’t take the not so subtle hint the yawn will resurface. A yawn will not be denied the completion of its assignment and will continue to pop up until it is successful in its mission.
The way I see it…yawns are meant to be enjoyed completely and without inhibitions.

I am so suggestive to yawns. I can read the word and yawn. If anyone says it, I do it. If they do it, oh, good grief, it is ridiculous. I am yawning now. Good post, but now I feel sleepy…xo
Most people will yawn if someone else does especially if the other person is a good yawner. 🙂
Just reading this, I yawned.
Cats really do have the yawning thing down… yawn with a great big stretch!
We can learn a lot about the good things in life from cats and how to enjoy them without guilt.
I absolutely agree with this, and they can be quite effective if done in a meeting that has run on much too long. A couple good yawns and the speaker usually gets the hint, or at least suggests it’s time for a break! 🙂

Spoken like a veteran meeting attendee. 🙂
I love a good yawn. I learned that from my cats.
Cats are the best at yawning!
I agree. Yawns are good for us. Yawn…
Excellent take on the prompt.
Thanks. Simple things like yawns are taken for granted and not appreciated as they should be.
So true, Patricia. A wonderful tribute to yawns. I happened to yawn reading the word. Just a reflex, not a comment. Ha ha! ❤
I wonder if a tribute to yawns has been done before? They are one of the pleasant things in life we think very little about or appreciate.
You may be the first, Patricia. Ha ha!
