5 Eye Exercises to Improve your Vision – Part 1

Although most of us are conscious about our overall fitness and try and do some exercises from time to time for our health, we never really pay much attention to our sense organs. Out of them, eyesight is perhaps one of the most important and you can do your bit to look after it just by doing a few simple exercises.

1. Palming

This is perhaps the simplest of all. Sit straight for a few minutes with your eyes closed and take a few relaxing breaths. Rub your palms vigorously until they are warm. Then place them slowly on the eyelids. They in turn will become warm as the heat is transferred from the palms. Wait for a few seconds and repeat this for three times. This is very relaxing for the eyes.

Blinking

Sit with your eyes open. Then blink your eyes very quickly for ten times. Close your eyes and relax for twenty seconds. Keep on repeating the procedure for about five minutes. You are bound to notice a difference as your eyes will tire less frequently.

Viewing Sideways

You have to sit straight on the floor with legs stretched in front and hands stretched by your sides with the thumbs pointing upwards. Look straight in front of you. Then just move your vision, not your head, to the right thumb, and exhale while doing so; then again to the center and inhale while doing so; then to your left thumb and so on. Repeat the process for about twenty times.

Seeing Front and Lower

You have to sit straight on the floor with legs stretched in front. This time, the hands should be placed on the knee with the thumb pointing upwards. Look straight in front of you. Then just move your vision, not your head, to the left thumb, and exhale while doing this; then again to the center and inhale while doing this; then to your right thumb and so on. Repeat the process for about twenty times.

Rotational Viewing

You have to sit straight on the floor with legs in front. Place the left hand on the left knee and the right hand on the right knee with thumbs pointing upwards. The elbows should be absolutely straight. First look in front. Shift your gaze to the left thumb. Rotate your thumb, once clockwise and then anti-clockwise and let your gaze follow it. Repeat with the right thumb.
