Without Proper Use of the Tongue We Are Like the Dumb Brutes, yes It Needs Exercised! Here is some great ways to exercise it.
It is a muscle that needs exercised
We don’t do yodeling, and with our vast of entertainment, we don’t need to talk much. When I do talk, I say the wrong words–sometimes at the risk of getting a knuckle sandwich. Most of our food is processed to the extent that it doesn’t need much chewing; some is even advertised as “sliders.” One gulp and “swallow.” The primary use now-a-days is in the act of swallowing out food.
Some Tongue exercising can be fun
- Stick it out, pull it back.
- Lower it towards the floor.
- Raise it toward the ceiling.
- Don’t be bashful.
- We each have one and it is not pretty.
- Make a large circle–then a small circle.
- Roll it around each tooth, one way, then the other.
Without Proper Use of the Tongue We Are Like the Dumb Brutes
The tongue, more than the opposing thumb sets us aside from the dumb brutes the ones who are dumber than most of us.
Bite Into an Apple or chew on a Carrot
Now that is an excellent and useful exercise. After you chew it and roll it around in your mouth with that appendage (the afore said tongue), use that same tongue to swallow the well-chewed mouthful. If that works well, try some raw nuts.
My Tongue Likes to Work
I am practicing singing to the trees and the dog. The dog wags its tail–the trees answer back in the wind. Many years ago, I asked my Daddy “Daddy, what is that noise in the tree-tops?” He said, “Jerry boy, that is the Bear’s talking machine (now days called a phonograph.)
Don’t let it go through life being lazy and ineffective.
