If you're like most of us these days, I bet you're spending a lot of time looking at a screen (hmmm, like right now!). Which means your eyes have been putting in some serious overtime and perhaps experiencing digital eyestrain. It's high time to give your precious, hardworking eyes some extra attention!
Let's start with a simple exercise that rests your eyes, reduces stress and helps you to feel calmer:
If you’ve been engaged in logical, factual left-brain tasks (writing reports, analyzing data), cover your right eye with your right hand for a few minutes...and while you're doing that, remember to breathe deeply! If you’ve been focused more on creative or emotional right-brain matters (talking about feelings, caring for others, design work), take a pause by covering your left eye with your left hand for a few minutes. And, of course, breathe!
Below are a few additional tips to give you -- and your overworked, tired eyes -- a well-deserved break! 👀
