So there’s a yoga pose to stop ringing ear drums, and pick-up-sticks-type exercises for bent toes. Why stop there? How about a muscle-building activity for the tongue? The LickThis app, created as a side project by a trio of creatives at Cali-based Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, helps train the tongue through Up n’ Down (flicking a light switch), Circles (turning a crank) and Freestyle (hitting a beach ball) exercises. With a tagline like “Practice makes pleasure” the mind admittedly goes to a dirty place, and not just the good kind, as studies show one-sixth of phones are riddled with fecal matter (don’t kill the messenger). There’s a product to help get sanitized if you can’t seem to get that piece of information out of your head now.
