Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing and have removed any ear jewellery before starting. Avoid doing the exercise immediately after eating.
Step 1: Stand with your feet about shoulder distance apart, toes pointing forward.
Step 2: Hold your right ear lobe between your left thumb and finger, with the thumb on the outside of the lobe
Step 3: Hold your left ear lobe between your right thumb and finger, again with you thumb on the outside of the lobe. You should now be holding both earlobes with your arms crossed over your chest, right arm on top
Step 4: Look directly ahead and commence doing a body squat by slowly bending your knees and lowering your body toward the floor. Go as low as you comfortably can and then slowly raise yourself back to a standing position. Exhale as you squat and inhale as you stand.
Step 5: Repeat the squats for 1 to 3 minutes, or 14 – 21 times, while continuing to hold your earlobes.
