How your tongue affects your strength & vision.

The physiologic resting position for the tongue.

Your tongue musculature is connected to the muscles of the jaw and the throat. If you have poor positioning this can have an effect on your neck position and stability and recent research has shown it to have an effect on muscle strength.

Link to the study

We firstly want to get your brain to know where your tongue should be resting throughout the day. To do this we need to carry out a simple exercise. (See video)

You want to try and do this three times every hour for the next 5 days. (During the day)
The benefit is it may actually impact on your vision, impact on your neck stability, neck pain, shoulder issues, and balance.

Go work your tongue! 🙂 SJ x
