Endless hours sat in front of a computer or TV can be really bad for your eyes. Dryness, itchiness, headaches — sounds familiar? Unfortunately, not all of us can afford to regularly go offline for a much needed break.
And so we decided to start small, and found ten simple exercises for your eyes, that you can do with no fuss in under 15 minutes. Try doing them at least from time to time, and you’ll really notice the difference!
Gaze into the darkness
(It’s not as ominous as it sounds.) Put your elbows on the table. Close your eyes and cup them with your palms. Relax and gaze into the darkness. Hold this position for a couple of minutes.
Up and Down Eye Movement
Sit up straight and look ahead. Then look up and focus on what you see. Look down. Don’t be afraid to wrinkle your forehead or frown. Look up and down five times. Repeat the entire cycle three times.
Rolling Your Eyes in a Circle
Sit up straight and relax. Look to the left and slowly roll your eyes in a circle clockwise. Do it clockwise five times and then counterclockwise five times. Repeat the entire cycle three times.
