    Question Yawn...

    Primal Fuel
    I've noticed that I yawn a lot when I am at work. Is there a particular reason for this? I don't feel physically tired so I suspect it is because I am bored. I don't yawn this much when I'm home (or anywhere else) unless I am actually physically tired.

    So, is it boredom? Or is it something else? Does this happen to anyone else?

    It sounds like boredom to me. A creative soul working as a compliance officer for a financial firm? That sounds like a recipe for disaster! ;-) See if the yawns go away if you do something fun like browse Pinterest - I bet they will!! 😜😜

    Yes, they do! My personality/career combo is a disaster, definitely. It's funny though, because people here will comment that I am tired but I'm actually not tired at all, I just don't care about compliance! Basically, the second I leave here I perk up and I'm wide awake.

    I thought maybe there was more to it than that, but there probably isn't.

    LOL! My friend does a similar job but is a social worker at heart. Nightmare! She always asks me why she's so depressed at work. Seriously? It's cause you hate your job! ;-) BUT...dem bills gotta get paid!

    I yawn at work all the time. I think it's because I have a windowless office.

    Unfortunately, that's the truth! I got a job offer for a jeweler position recenctly, but the pay was so bad I could not afford to take it. Silly me, I thought jewelers were sort of a skilled trade, but apparently, they are not because the position paid $10.00/hour which is less than 25% of what I make doing this boring compliance stuff. So, jewelry remains a hobby for me.

    It could be. But, I am in one of those stupid open concept offices where we all have a "right to light" and I'm yawning constantly anyway.

    I can by all means, but I like my job.

    As you work your way up the totem pole, you can graduate to offices on the outside of the building. I used to sit in the cube area, that was almost better as a window was nearby. Although I still yawned. Maybe it's the computer screen or the A/C.

    I work outside all day but the second I sit down to start entering data in the computer, I start yawning. People are supposed to be outside!
