How do I stop myself from yawning when I'm in a meeting?

Odds are, you aren’t yawning because you’re bored or tired – but try telling that to your appalled colleagues. It’s more likely that your brain is trying to cool off, says Gordon Gallup, PhD, a professor of psychology at the State University of New York at Albany. During periods of intense activity, that CPU in your skull starts heating up, and while a real computer uses a fan to prevent overheating, your body uses a yawn. Inhaling a wave of fresh air cools the blood in your lungs and, subsequently, your brain. So if you feel like you’re about to show your molars at a meeting, breathe in deeply through your nose. “This cools the capillaries in the interior of the nose, and that sends cool blood directly to the brain,” says Prof Gallup. “One deep inhalation is usually enough to stifle a yawn.”
