Slowly move your head as if you were answering yes, no, or maybe to a question. When doing yes, simply nod your head back and forth, slowly, as if you were answering yes to someone’s question. When doing no, rotate your head left and right as if answering no to someone’s question. Lastly, there’s maybe, incline your head left and right like you’re going to press your ear to your shoulder. IF you feel pain, stop immediately.
