What do I want to emphasize?

Set the laziness aside and start with short exercises for the eyes.
Look away, move your eyes in different directions while you are relaxed and in a comfortable position for you.
Of course, you do not have to cross your legs and take a position with your hands in the air.
Don’t do it unless you feel comfortable.
Take it as a warm-up before a real workout.
This will not only prepare the structures that surround the eyes, but also the tissues in the eye.
It will relax the muscles, blood flow will improve the rhythm and contribute more oxygen and nutrients to the tissues.

This yoga exercise aims to sharpen vision at a distance and also to relax.
You will need a blank wall, a comfy chair and a few capital letters (you can cut a magazine title or make it yourself).
You will be surprised how advanced you can be if you do this every day.
Get some rest after the exercises.
Abel studies say that our photoreceptors are destroyed and restored every minute.
“The simplest way to overcome eye stress is to take a deep breath, cover your eyes and relax.”
You can close your eyes and cover your eyes with your hands. Do not put your hands near your eyes, they should be in the glass of your palm.
Hold the position for 1 minute or as long as you want.
Try these 5 eye yoga exercises that will help you to see the positive result in yourself.
They are fun, relaxing and you don’t have to be inside when you want to try them out.
For best results, try doing them when your eyes are still fresh.
Do not rush into artificial light or focus on the screen of your phone, or computer monitor.
Otherwise, use a Screen Filter and do a favor for both your health and your eyes.
