Simple exercises for the eyes
Simple gymnastics for eyesight must be taken care of, especially if you are forced to spend a large amount of time studying or working at the computer. Get rid of eye fatigue and protect them from severe strain can be using simple exercises.
After working for one hour, you should definitely take a break and do some exercises for your eyes. You should start with a warm-up: blink quickly for a few seconds, then close your eyes tightly and open them again after a few seconds. After that, just close them and sit there for 15 seconds, while you should be completely relaxed.
Slightly closing the eyelids, perform circular movements, 10 times in each direction.Without opening your eyelids, place the pads of your index fingers on them and, with a little pressure, massage them with light circular movements — first clockwise, then counterclockwise. Do this way for 10 repetitions.
Open your eyelids. After that, make movements in different directions with the pupils — first in one, and then in the other, alternating them. This exercise can be performed in a sitting position, at the beginning moving your eyes to the lower right corner of the room, and then slowly translate in the direction of the upper corner. After that, try to direct your gaze to one of the upper corners and smoothly move it in the direction of the diagonal to the lower corner at the opposite edge. Each of these exercises is recommended to be repeated five or six times.
The following exercises are quite important, as they will help restore visual abilities after the moment when the eyes are used to following objects only in the immediate vicinity of you ( a book, a computer, and so on). Go to a window. Move your gaze to the farthest point on the horizon that you can see at least a little. Fix your eyes on it. Look at this particular point for one minute, try not to blink and do not look away from it.
Place the index finger of one hand against your eyes so that it is about thirty centimeters away from them. Don’t take your eyes off it for five seconds. Lower your finger and move your gaze into the distance, fix your gaze on the farthest point, then re-direct it to your finger. This exercise is recommended to be repeated three or four times.
Take a regular pencil (pen) or use your own index finger. Hold it as close as possible to the tip of your nose and stop looking at it. Without looking away, start slowly moving your finger in the direction directly in front of you, then return it to its original position. Perform this exercise 5-6 times.
