A long day in front of the computer, peering down into your mobile phone screen to catch email on the run or using that small screened lap top on the commuter train can just wreck havoc with your eyes. And, when you want to spend a languid afternoon relaxing in front of the television screen to unwind and watch your favorite match, you certainly don’t want your eyes so tired that you miss the ball, so to speak! Gear up for that while you’re still at the office by every half hour remembering to look away from the screen, left, right, far, close up, up and down. Every hour rub your palms together until they are warm and then place them over your eyes for about 2 deep breaths. Slowly open and blink a few times to alleviate dry eye. If you are sensitive to fluorescent lighting, purchase a pair of amber colored sunglasses to cut down on the glare. Adjust your desk’s computer screen so that it is about 6 inches below eye level. Ready to watch the match? Light a candle. Look into the flame about arms length away, for about 1 minute. Close your eyes and try to keep the after image in the center of your forehead. This helps to train your eyes to work together, relieving eyestrain. Open your eyes and feast them on the wondrous sight that is Cricket! Yoga Works!
