Forehead Relaxer

 Purpose: Forehead Wrinkle Exercise


1. Make a fist with both hands. Place the middle and index finger knuckles in the center of your forehead. Apply firm pressure.

2. Slowly slide your knuckles out to each side. Slide your knuckles all the way to your temples. Count to five while you slide to make sure you move slowly.

3. Repeat this four times.

This exercise uses acupressure to remove tension and forces the forehead muscles to relax. It will help you relieve tension after a particularly stressful day at work.
