The way each body forms never fails to amaze me. Scientists - at the University of California, San Francisco, and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center - believe that body-penetrating light can alter the development of the eye, at least in mice. In other words, tiny amounts of light in the womb give healthy eyes.
Now my body's formation is another matter. It's still developing after three score years and ten. Not sure I like the changes, but that's nature. We weren't meant to live forever (although some movie stars use cosmetic alterations to cling to their youth with laughable results). My chin is doubling. Haha. We'll see about that. I mean to use exercise to control the flab.
Every morning, I stretch my neck, back and arms in a practice I've developed over thirty years. After the sight of a second chin peeping under the one I associate as normal, I added a new workout. A new product shown on a television advertisement recommended their product to control a double chin. But I, in my wisdom, substituted their gizmo for a plastic jar measuring 3 inches across. That's 22 cm. in metric.
I grip the container under the chin for the count of 10 and then swap hands to adjust for another count which I repeat 10 times. I like counting. In this way, I maintain my customary exercises before meditation for about half an hour. Although I've just woken and shouldn't need to relax and unwind, the routine imparts peace to begin the day.
