Is it just me or are your eyes unfocused from all the being at home and close up work? Aside from making sure you take daylight walks focusing long distance we can also do these helpful eye exercises. Here’s an article I found on some advice.

Try these ‘eye yoga’ moves to avoid straining your peepers

With the work-from-home order in place, a lot of us are finding ourselves staring at small-screened laptops and perhaps in less than ideal office conditions. This can be bad for your eyes, so we’ve got some exercises created by therapist and yoga teacher Phoebe Greenacre, who collaborated with Lenstore, to help you out.

1. Palming

Rub your palms together to create heat, then place your hands over your eyes for 10 seconds. This will allow any tension accumulated in the back of the eye to slowly decrease.

2. Rapid blinking

Try blinking very fast for 10-15 seconds and then allow your eyes to close, settle and soften. This exercise is helpful for releasing the eyes from dryness and overuse.

3. Eye-rolling

Roll your eyes repeatedly clockwise and anti-clockwise. This exercise is particularly good as it may help to strengthen the eye muscles.

Do these exercises whenever your eyes feel tense, and remember to use the 20-20-20 rule (look at something 20 metres away, for 20 seconds, every 20 minutes) to help prevent your eyes from getting strained in the first place.
