Ease Screen Eye Fatigue

April 27th 2020

With so much of our lives now happening online, many of us are spending far more time than we are used to staring at a screen and finding it surprisingly exhausting. (See BBC article at the bottom of this post).

This routine of yoga eye exercises both helps to relax the eyes and balance the left and right brain hemispheres (similar to EMDR eye movements). Thus they calm the mind and are helpful for reducing stress and repetitive thoughts and as preparation for meditation.

These eye exercises can be done sitting or lying down and even combined with a mild passive inversion pose, followed by relaxation with an eye cover for 5-15 minutes. This adds an energy replenishing, restorative benefit.

Breathe into the belly and slightly lengthen the exhalations.

Here is a BBC article on why online conferencing such as via Zoom is so tiring.
