So when you're feeling sleepy do you open your mouth and yawn, maybe cover your mouth with your hand if you're in public? PEASANTS! You've probably taken years off your life yawning incorrectly. According to yogi Michael Lear, yawning is important for relaxing jaw and neck muscles after a long day of conversation and eating organic kale. Thankfully Goop's own Gwyneth Paltrow is here to teach us plebians the correct way to yawn.
I won't post the full instructions here, they're long and detailed, but here are a few highlights.
- Breathe deeply and let air hit the back of your throat.
- EXTEND into a yawn, work them jaw muscles.
- Keep yawning until you cry. Yes, you should tear up.
