Mini Lesson to relieve eye strain:
Learning by doing
Eyestrain and discomfort reduce our ability to see clearly and can make us feel tired and anxious. With a little practice a few minutes a day, smoother and more fluid eye movements can be re-learned. It would be best to read the following instructions into a recorder and follow by listening. Leave plenty of time for both the movements and the rests. Repeat each movement variation five to 10 times – using less effort each time. Allow your movements to become slow, small and discrete. Find the pleasure hidden in light and effortless movements. It is important to breathe easily throughout, and rest for a minute or so between each sequence so the brain and eyes have time to change. It is important to pause or stop if you feel any discomfort, strain or pain.
- Lie on your back with your knees bent and the soles of your feet flat on the floor.
- With your eyes closed, feel the back of your head resting on the floor. Gently roll your head an inch or so to the right and to the left. If you reduce your effort each time and do not hold your breath, you will feel the rolling of your head becoming easier, smoother and more pleasant. Rest a minute.
- Gently open your eyes and look at some convenient spot on the ceiling. Gently roll your head a few inches left and right while leaving your eyes anchored to the spot. Reduce any strain that you feel in your eyes, jaw and neck. Breathe easily. Rest.
- Close your left eye, or use an eye patch and look at the same spot with your right eye. Roll your head an inch or so left and right. Rest.
- Close your right eye, look at the spot with your left eye and roll your head gently left and right. Rest.
- With both eyes softly focused on the same spot, roll your head left and right. Rest.
- Close both eyes and roll your head left and right. Notice if your head rolls easier than when you began. Rest.
- Slowly open your eyes and come up and stand. Look around and notice the colours, details and textures that you now can see.
