Yawning is a mystery...

Scientists once believed that yawning was triggered by the brain to allow for more oxygen to enter the body, but then it was thought to be designed to keep the brain cool.

Well now it turns out that there's a connection between the susceptibility of contagious yawning and empathy.


Studies have shown that yawning occurred much more frequently in humans when they saw others yawning.

Test it out for yourself and see if you can stop the yawns while you watch the below video.
