Day 75: Chin Tuck

So, have you ever heard of "face yoga"?  If not, google it.  Or, better yet, look it up on YouTube.  Pretty funny stuff.

As in, you look really funny doing it.

Which is a big part of why I was hesitant to ever practice it.  That, and I was pretty sure that the purported benefits were all a load of bunk.

But, then I started to notice some wrinkle on my face.  Which is weird because I'm pretty sure I'm still 23.

So, I decided I'd give it a try.  I mean (besides my pride), what could it hurt?

I've been doing it for several months now.  But now that I'm doing general yoga a lot more often, the frequency of my facial yoga has picked up as well.

Tonight I mentioned to HH that I've been doing these exercises to try and combat that unfortunate bit of sag that has just always existed under my chin.  Mostly unnoticeable, except when I'm looking at photos of myself and scrutinizing everything about me.  And, apparently, HH has noticed it as well.

Because as soon as I shared that I'd been doing these silly exercises, he told me he recently noticed that that sag seemed to have diminished.  The fact that he noticed this without me ever saying anything let me know that I probably have made legitimate progress.

Maybe this is really silly.  And perhaps, reveals that sometimes I indulge in personal vanity.

But, it kind of made me happy to know that my efforts have begun paying off.

Baby Birds and Fish Face are similar to what I mostly practice.

And I'll have one less thing to be critical about while starting at photos of myself.

I finally watched these today - I am definitely doing the things in the 2nd video on a daily basis, we'll see what happens. Not so sure about the 1st video; so far it just makes me cough. :o)
