After 3 weeks you may tilt your head at an angle for exercises 1 to 4 while applying resistance.
 
Exercise 5

Sit on a chair and look straight forward. Relax your head muscles. You will find that your head will move slightly forward and your chin will poke outwards. Now move your head straight backwards as far as possible. You will feel that you tug in your chin when you do the movement. Do not tilt your head backwards during the movement. Hold the contraction for 6 seconds and repeat 10 times.
