Do you pass your entire day gazing at the monitor of your screen, just like me? If yes, then you must be familiar with tired eyes, aching brows and an exhausted you. If it is not computer screen, then it is a mobile screen or television or one of those gaming devises like gameboy or playstation. This is the way our lifestyle is. We cannot change it, however, we can at least adopt one holistic approach to improve the health of our eyes. Yoga exercise for the eyes is one such approach.
The principle is that the actual state of the human body should be serene, but when we stare continuously at the screen the harmful artificial rays coming from it creates imbalance. Also, when you read information on the computer the brain stresses and tries to absorb the info. This stresses the whole body, yes your eyes as well. All these reasons make it all the more essential for you to practice yoga exercises for the sake of your eyes.
First of all you must ease your mind and relax your body as if you are in meditation. Forget about anything with screen for the next ten minutes.
Bettering Visual Concentration
Imagination to improve Visual Concentration
Lie flat on your back facing straight up. Your hands should be straight and your palms should be facing the ceiling. Your legs should be straight and about shoulder-breadth apart.
Now close your eyes gently. Take a deep breath. Feel your tummy expand as your breath fills your tummy. Slowly breathe out. Continue this exercise for five to fifteen times. Now gently open your eyes and fix your gaze at a point on the ceiling. Gently close your eyes and continue ‘looking’ at that point with closed eyes. You will know what I mean by looking with closed eyes once you practice it. This yogic exercise helps in distressing your eyes. It balances visual focus with imaging as well.
