Day 26: The Eyes Have It

Your eyes are working very hard. Take a few minutes and give them a rest.
 
Option 1: Shut your eyes at least twice every hour. Place the pads of your palms on your eyes and apply mild pressure. This will relieve eyestrain.
 
Option 2: Take your eyes off your computer monitor and let them wander around the room for a few seconds every now and them. This will keep your eyes alert and reduce the possibility of headaches and eye irritation. 
 
Option 3: Open your eyes as wide as possible (furrow your brow); relax. Close your eyes tightly (squint); relax. Make sure you completely relax the eyes, forehead, and nose after each tensing. Repeat ten times.
