“The photo director for National Geographic, David Griffin knows the power of photography to connect us to our world. In a talk filled with glorious images, he talks about how we all use photos to tell our stories.”

Why is Yawning Contagious?

One day, when I was searching our images, I had to do a search for “Yawn”. And wow, did I yawn! This gave me the idea to make a video with images of people sleeping and yawning – to demostrate how difficult it is to not yawn when you see other people yawning. It’s one of the first videos I’ve ever made, but even if it’s not perfect I’m sure it will make you YAAAWWWNNN!

How many times did you yawn? Or are you one of those super-humans who manage to not yawn? Tell me in a comment! I yawn many times, every time.. :)

So, why is yawning contagious, and why do we do it? There is still no one answer for this, but you can read about the proposed reasons in Wikipedia.

Another good way to use this video is  if you have trouble relaxing or getting sleepy. Try to involve yourself in the images, feeling the relaxation the sleeping people and animals are experiencing, and hopefully you’ll feel more relaxed and sleepy afterwards!

The music is Lent Et Douloureux – Gymnopédie II by Satie.

All images and photos comes from our talented photograpers!

Monday – Do You Need Some Inspiration and Motivation?

You might think it takes a lot to get inspired or motivated – and sometimes it does. But motivation can also come easy – if you are exposed to the right triggers. I always thought I didn’t get motivated by “mooshy motivation videos and quotes”. But, after making a video with some of the quotes I find most motivating, I must admit it really works. Whenever I lack motivation, I can watch this video and feel the motivation return.

And of course, all the images in the video is from our amazingly talented photographers!

Do you have a quote or saying that motivates or inspires you? I would love it if you shared your favorite quote with me!

If I have more time, I like to watch a TED-talk. (You can read more about Ted-talks here.)The people speaking are always motivated, no matter what they speak about. It’s impossible to stay untouched by their enthusiasm!
