Exercise Instructions

  • Step One: Stand with your feet about shoulder distance apart, toes pointing forward.
  • Step Two: Grab your right ear lobe between your left thumb and finger (we’re not joking).
  • Step Three: Grab your left ear lobe between your right thumb and finger. You should now be holding both earlobes with your arms crossed over your chest (and we’re still not joking).
  • Step Four: Commence doing body squats by bending your knees and lowering your body toward the floor as you breathe in. Go as low as you can comfortably manage and then raise yourself back to a standing position as you breathe out.
  • Step Five: Repeat the squats for 1 to 3 minutes while continuing to hold your earlobes.

So, with an exercise this easy why not commit to giving your brain a regular workout? Just hold those ears and bend the knees a few minutes each day for clearer thinking and a sharper memory.
