One of the best ways to do so it to try yoga for eyes. Yoga for eyes is specific type of eye workout that can be done at any time in the day, and all you need is few minutes.
We've shared here four simple yoga exercises that that will help ease out overused muscles, reduce tension in the face and eyes.
1. Blink - Gently open your eyes wide and quickly blink them about 10 times. Now, close your eyes for about 20 seconds and repeat this Exercise for four more times. It is advisable that the human eye should blink about 25 times in one minute. However, many of us don't, especially while working on our computer or smartphone. This exercise helps your eye nourish itself, relaxes the eye muscles and prevent dry eyes.
2. Palming - Start by rubbing your palms together till they feel warm. Then place them on your eyes and hold the position till your palm feels warm. This yoga practice is another form of relaxation which is something your eyes could use, especially after a long day at work.
3. Sideways & Rotation - Now it's turn to stretch your eye muscles. Move your eyes slowly from side to side and then all the way around in a circular motion. If you find that difficulty, then use your finger and move it in a circle, and let your eyes follow the same. Repeat the same for about 20 minutes.
4. Bhramari Pranayama - This yoga is also known as the humble bee breath, this exercise is really calming and can drown down the unnecessary noise in your head, making you feel relaxed with just a few breaths. All you need to do is sit on the floor cross-legged or however you feel comfortable. Now place your fingers over your eyes horizontally. Exhale and when you inhale make a bee like buzzing sound.
