Tongue Tension Tamers

I'm super excited for this week's Bliss Bite, which comes from one of our YB community members.  She emailed me last week about tension in her tongue - which she called a "stressed tongue."
 

I’m not an expert on tongues or mouth/tongue positioning, but I have read some interesting information on it. It seems like the best place to rest the tongue is toward the roof of the mouth – with the tip of the tongue on the roof just behind, but not touching, your top teeth, (like you were saying the letter “n”) and the back of the tongue up as well toward the roof of the mouth.  From what I understand this positioning can help with head, teeth and jaw positioning, tmj, swallowing, singing and more. Again, I’m not an expert but I’m interested in learning more.
 

Given all that, I do think it’s important to notice when and where we are carrying stress, so if it feels like your tongue is tight or tense, or your jaw is clenched,  check out this video for a few things you can try to relieve some of that tension.

Please share with your friends and let me know via email or Facebook how this practice feels.  And certainly email or Facebook me with other questions and Bliss Bite suggestions, so we can stay connected!

    
Peace, Love, and Bliss,
Beth
