It's Impossible Not To Yawn While Watching This (Completely Adorable) Video

NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 06: Hailey, a Boston Terrier Beagle, yawns at a media event ahead of the 138th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on February 6, 2014 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Mixed Breed category brings non-purebred dogs to the event for the first time since the earliest days of the show. This is the first year for the Masters Agility Championship at Westminster, which will be held this Saturday at Pier 94 in New York, ahead of the big event - the annual Westminster Dog Show.

Why is watching someone yawn so hypnotic? Is it because all of us slightly look like ogers when we do it? But in a really cute way? Like really cute, baby ogers? Is it because yawns remind us how much we love sleeping and so we’re just innately drawn to them? I don’t really understand the psychology of yawning or why we even really need to (something about oxygen levels, right?), but I do know one thing: they’re really fun to watch, and they're also really satisfying to do. In this short clip titled “Yawns”, you get to experience almost every kind of yawn humanly (or non-humanly possible). 

In this video, we see newborn babies rubbing their faces, babies just about ready for bedtime, bored toddlers eating dinner, kids not feeling swim practice, teenagers tuning out while doing their homework, grown-ups yawning probably because life is continuously exhausting, and animals yawning because I’m guessing the wild can either be super, super exciting, or really, really boring. Also, if you’ve never seen a baby sloth yawn, prepare for you life to be forever changed. 

Behold, the ultimate collection of yawns, the universal symbol for “ugh, I really just want to nap right now”:
