Simple Exercises Help Reduce Eye Strain Naturally

Do you find yourself squinting and rubbing your eyes in irritation all the time? Due to increased exposure to computer screens and mobile phones, a lot of people have started experiencing blurred vision, itchiness and headaches due to eye strain.

Here are a few simple exercises to help you rejuvenate your eyes and reduce the strain.

1. Palming.

Rub your hands together for about 10 to 15 seconds till they’re slightly warm, then place them upon your eyes. Don’t touch your eyeballs directly; instead just cup your hands lightly over your eyes.

2. Repeated blinking.

Blinking every three or four seconds helps reduce eye strain. We tend to blink less when we watch television or work on the computer, so blinking every few seconds can help your eyes rest

3. Focusing on a distant object.

Pick an object about six to 10 meters away from you, and focus on it for a few seconds without moving your head. This relaxes the ciliary muscles, which tend to be under a lot of stress.

4. Eye rolling

Roll your eyes, tracing as big a circle as possible. Do this about four times, then close your eyes, focus on your breathing and relax.
