  • Next practice Palming:  Palming is done by vigorously rubbing your hand together until your palms get warm and then gently covering your eyes with your palms, allowing the warmth to relax and nourish your eyes.  This can be done anytime in between the following exercises, whenever you feel you need to give your eyes a break.
  • Blink several times quickly.  Relax for a few moments.

  • Close your eyes, relax and perform palming.

    Adding powerful antioxidants to your diet can improve your eye health.

    There’s no substitute for the quality of life good vision offers. Adding certain nutrients to your diet every day – either through foods or supplements – can help save your vision. Researchers have linked eye-friendly nutrients such as lutein/zeaxanthin, vitamin C, vitamin E, and zinc to reducing the risk of certain eye diseases, including macular degeneration and cataract formation.

    Hi Anthony,

    You are feeling the muscles stretch and flex, and it does it feel good :-). Again, the golden rule is to go slow and ensure you have no lingering discomfort after you complete the set. I am a huge fan of being gentle and patient with the body.

    Hi Anthony,

    No, instead just look up a little less and slowly increase the range as you feel more comfortable. Give it some time, as these muscles may not have been used in this way too much before.

    Let me know how it goes.

    Thanks for the article Anmol! I’ve been reading in conjunction with my practice, recently, and I’d like to share a book with you that might offer you some new insights. It’s called Harmonic Wealth and it’s all about finding harmony in your life in all areas – financial, relational, mental, physical, and spiritual. It has some really good tips about how to engage all five pillars (or areas) of your life, and to learn more about how they complement each other. Rather than dealing with each issue individually, maybe take a look at the bigger picture.
    Here’s the link to that book I recommend: harmonicwealth.com/read
