Do you spend your days staring at a computer screen?
If you do, you probably know how draining and tiring it can be to your entire body, not just your eyes.
Here is a natural approach that you may find helpful to relieve or prevent eye strain.
Sit at the edge of your chair with your back straight. Close your eyes and place the palm of each hand over an eye, so you feel your palms warming your eyes.
Remove your hands, keeping your eyes closed. Inhale deeply through your nose. Exhale and let your head drop forward then rotate it from side to side. Shrug your shoulders, making circles with them forward and backward.
Close your eyes tightly and lift and tighten your shoulders as much as you can. Hold for a few seconds and then exhale, suddenly releasing your shoulders and opening your eyes. Repeat this several times.
Blink repeatedly, fluttering your eyelids until your eyes become moist. Repeat this several times.
Breathing naturally, focus on an object far away from you for about half a minute. Try to maintain your focus, then blink rapidly several times. Then focus on a nearby object for about 15 seconds. Try to maintain your focus, then blink rapidly several times.
Once you've memorized the routine, you can easily do it throughout the day.
