I promised you another practice to help you stay alert while driving. In a moment you will see why I recommend trying it in the car. Open your eyes wide, open your mouth wide, now stick your tongue out long and passionately.

This is called the “Lion”. Focus on the roof of the mouth. This is a portal to the brain.

Hold the Lion until someone catches you or until your mouth gets tired. Now is a great time to practice your “Eeeeee” that you learned in column #7. Remember, you get better at what you practice. Why not practice being more alert and focused!?!

Oh, by the way, this is a great tool to teach children! Next column, find your toes!
