Do Avid Readers Have More Neck Wrinkles Than Non-readers?

By Deb Baker/Hannah Reed


While taking care of my mother after she broke her ankle, I had time to wonder about things I
normally don’t have time for (Probably that is a good thing).

One of them involved my neck. You see, it is really getting wrinkled well before my face, making me more conscious of how I hold my head. I’m pretty sure reading is to blame.

Try it yourself. Put your head in your normal reading position. Do you feel that? Neck crinkles. They will become neck wrinkles in no time. But what to do about it? Certainly not abstain! Heavens, no!

I’ll take my chicken neck, because the alternative is just too awful. How about you? Are you getting a chicken neck?

I don't think how you hold your head makes a difference in chicken neck....aging takes away all out elastin, cooligen, and some other "gen", that holds us together, so we attrack mates....when our job is done..the body know it, and removes what it no longer needs. Plus, it is hereitary too. I have my grandma's chicken neck...and I thought she was the prettiest woman around..so..maybe I will follow in her foot steps!!!! The face sags too...when we lose our "gens".......life happens......

Lol Deb, this is a fun topic although not a happy one. I am more worried about the double chin showing ...

Deb said...

Double chin? I bet that's another avid reader curse. LOL!

Deb said...

Love my chicken neck - it's like tree rings - you can count the number of books I have read and loved by each wrinkle!

As long as I can still see my book through the double chins and all, that is fine with me. I would much rather see a person who looks her age than one with wrinkles everywhere but her face making it known that she had "work done". To me natural beauty is real beauty; we all age, and for whatever reason it is fine with me. My secret for the face wrinkles is to keep extra weight on so that they stay plumped up and don't get too deep. Anyone else with me with that one?? :)
