I feel that I’ve been straining my eyes too much recently. It’s so timely for me to find this article that talks about different eye exercises to relax tired eyes and improve visual concentration.
“Here is information about one natural approach, which is essentially “yoga for the eyes”. The rationale is that natural state of the body is to be at peace, but when we read to understand and learn new information, the mind becomes tense and tries to catch hold. This strains the entire body, including the eyes, leaving people feeling drained even though they haven’t physically exerted themselves.”
The key to doing these exercises is to relax and empty the mind as if you are meditating.
