Yawn:Why do we get bored?

What bores you?

why do we get bored? or why do we yawn? approximately all us yawn. be it after waking up, in a conversation or in a speech or lecture. what causes us to yawn?
let’s first know a little about the science behind yawning:

Arguably the first studier of yawns was the Greek physician Hippocrates nearly 2,500 years ago. He believed that yawning helped to release noxious air, particularly during a fever. “Like the large quantities of steam that escape from cauldrons when water boils, the accumulated air in the body is violently expelled through the mouth when the body temperature rises,” he wrote. Different incarnations of the idea lingered until the 19th

Different incarnations of the idea lingered until the 19th Century when scientists instead proposed that yawning aids respiration – triggering a rush of oxygen into the blood supply, while flushing out the carbon dioxide. If that were true, you would expect people to yawn more or less frequently depending on the oxygen and carbon dioxide concentrations in the air.


we also yawn when we get an external thought but our mind is not able to grasp it. it is too incomprehensible that mind can’t digest it and sends it back which becomes a yawn.


yawn is also caused by the repetition of the things. when we go on repeating the things then our mind becomes inactive to the information because it is already having this information.

as we know all the people don’t yawn equally. some people yawn too frequently while others yawn very rarely. it mainly depends upon the intellectual level and our interest in different things. if our intellectual level is high then we are less likely to yawn. and same is the case with our interest in the things.

our boredom also depends upon our lifestyle. if we have a proper lifestyle then it is less likely that things will bore us. if we are occupied people and keep ourselves busy in different matters. and also prefer the challenging then also, it is less likely that we will get bored. those people get bored more easily who don’t have a particular direction in their lives. they have no idea what they are doing. they are just going with the life. they easily get bored because they never follow their interests. for some time things seem to be interesting to them but as some time passes it becomes a boredom. because it’s not that they love to do. unless we find sth which we love to do boredom will be there.


if we have a learning attitude then we will always be ready to welcome new things. we will take challenges and challenges are never boring. so in order to keep boredom away, we need to try new things frequently. and the most important thing is that we should be concerned about the self-analysis it will help us to know where are going wrong, and we can improve.

as far as I am concerned, I am very less likely to get bored. why should I? there are so many good things or people in my life they never let me get bored. and if we are getting interesting prompts from the word press daily then how can we be bored, there is no place for that. if I am open to new people and new ideas then I am not gonna get bored.

Is there anything which bores you?

  1. I don’t know why but I yawned once while reading the post especially when I stopped at the yawning picture uploaded.
    Isn’t it being contagious one of the reason we yawn when we see someone yawning?
    This happened while reading!
