The fact is, scientists don’t really know why humans yawn. They’ve been unable to find any clear physiological effect of yawning or explanation of why it happens when it does.

That being said, there are some theories about this behavior — and a few theories that scientists have ruled out.
There’s a good reason why you just want to sleep when you have a cold. Sleep helps the body prevent infections, fight inflammation, and stave off long-term illnesses. Unfortunately, it’s often difficult to get a good night’s sleep when you need it the most.

Trying to sleep with a stuffy nose is no one’s idea of a good time, but it doesn’t have to keep you awake all night.

So when your bed makes more noise than a flock of birds, instead of burying your head under the pillows and struggling to get back to sleep, seek out the problem and repair it. With a bit of ingenuity and some inexpensive hardware, you may be able to eliminate the problem altogether. If you can’t, the only other solution to a squeaky mattress is to replace it. Your back, and your sanity, will thank you.
