Keep the lips puckered for 10 counts, relax, then bring the head back to its normal position and repeat procedure 5 times.

2. While sitting upright with the head looking at the ceiling, keep lips closed and relaxed. Open the lips and stick the tongue as if it was trying to touch the chin with its tips. Keep the tongue out in this position for 10 counts; return the tongue and the head back to its normal position.

3. While sitting upright with the head looking at the ceiling, keep the lips closed and relaxed. Then move the lower lip over the top lip as far as possible keeping it there until the count of 5. Relax and repeat the procedure 5 times.

4. While sitting upright, move the face forward and keep the lips together. Separate the teeth by dropping the jaw and pushing it forward until the count of 10. Return with the starting position and repeat 5 times.

5. While lying on the bed, hang the head down over the edge. Slowly bring the head up towards the torso until the count of 10. Relax and lower the head towards the floor and repeat the procedure for 5 times.
