A few healthy fun facts from the School of Health & Wellness faculty members:
Did you know that yawning is quite good for your health and well being?
While reading now… start to yawn a few times in a relaxed manner.
Based on research in this arena, yawning several times yields these following benefits:
cools the brain
yawning is a mood booster!
yawning helps you to feel happier!
And it’s nice and easy to do… yielding many benefits. (While writing this in the NEU office … we are all yawning too.) It’s contagious in a good way – join us.
Another fun fact:
Children instinctively smile about 400 times a day! Smiles are contagious, too. Yet it appears not so much for us adults.
Sadly – according to research on the subject – only one third (1/3) of grown-ups smile more than 20 times a day! And, less than 14% seem to be able to muster up just a grin more than five (5) times in a day.
So… we trust you’re smiling now.. make a good habit of smiling more – it’s good for your immune system as well.
Children know! UN-learn and Learn from them!
