A Complete Yawn Makes Your Eyes Pee
Buteyko Method practitioners tend to disparage yawning, one of the greatest stress-busters available to everyone at no cost.
(Wilhelm Reich’s “complete orgasm” is even more effective, but this is a children’s blog.)
Even ants yawn.
Cats don’t practice Buteyko Breathing. Ninety-nine out of a hundred cats prefer to yawn.
A yawn relaxes muscles.
They immediately tighten up at yawn’s end (with rare exceptions).
But if you form a habit of yawning day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, your muscles get looser and looser and looser and looser.
Muscle relaxation works backwards and forwards — nerves relax and bones relax.
Relaxed bones contain more calcium carbonate and less calcium phosphate.
Results are faster using Complete Yawns — “a full yawn with tonic extension of the limbs.”
A Complete Yawn makes your eyes water because carbon dioxide is a refrigerant (like dry ice).
Food removed from a freezer “sweats” — condensation occurs.
Teardrops defrost nerves, muscles, and bones.
According to “Cats” (a book based on the Wikipedia article “Cat”) …
“Yawning in front of their companion and blinking behavior is common in cats and may be a sign of trust or affection. Some cats will respond to a human who dramatically yawns or closes or opens their eyes by reciprocating the action.”
