A quick way to relax your eyes
If your eyes feel fatigued, give them a quick energy boost with this exercise.
If you're working with screens, it is very likely that your eyes sometimes feel fatigued. Your eyelids feel heavy, your eyes sting a bit, or you're just finding it hard to focus on parts of the screen.
Whenever you need to, you can give your eyes a quick energy boost with this exercise:
- Put your elbows on your desk.
- Cup your eyes with your palms. No light should come through.
- Open your eyes and look at the darkness for a minute.
The heat from your palms and the lowered stimulus should help the eye muscles relax and invigorate them. Repeat as often as you like.
