You can accelerate the recovery process by reducing your stress, practicing relaxed diaphragmatic breathing, increasing your rest, getting regular light to moderate exercise, and not worrying about the excessive yawning.

Why do I yawn so much during anxiety?
Anxiety is a common trigger for yawning. Anxiety affects the heart, respiratory system, and energy levels. These can all cause breathlessness, yawning, and feelings of stress.
Can shortness of breath from anxiety last for days?
Shortness of breath from an anxiety or panic attack is different from symptoms related to COVID-19, in that it typically lasts from 10 to 30 minutes. These episodes or brief periods of shortness of breath are not accompanied by other symptoms and don’t continue over an extended period of time.
How long can anxiety last?
Anxiety attacks typically last no more than 30 minutes, with the symptoms reaching their most intense at about halfway through the attack. Anxiety can build up for hours or even days before the actual attack so it is important to take note of factors that contribute to anxiety to effectively prevent or treat them.
Is it possible to cure anxiety?
Anxiety is not curable, but there are ways to keep it from being a big problem. Getting the right treatment for your anxiety will help you dial back your out-of-control worries so that you can get on with life.
Is yawning due to a lack of oxygen?
This seems logical since yawning does bring in more oxygen with a deep breath and the expiration removes more carbon dioxide than the usual breath, but research by putting people in low-oxygen or high- carbon-dioxide environments does not cause yawning.
