Stretch Those Hard-Working Eyes

You knew that your eyes can move because you have eye muscles right? Well, just like it’s a good idea to exercise your other muscles, it’s a good idea to exercise your eye muscles. Here’s a move to get you started. Big thanks to both Michelle and Brittian for “volunteering” to be photographed.

When your ear is as low as it will go, allow your eyes to look up while taking one breath (Take the opportunity to get in a nice big-belly breath if you can swing it).  Exhale as you lower your eyes while bringing your head back up to its usual place. Repeat for the other side. Go slowly in case you give yourself the dizzies (stop if you do!) Start with three times for each side. Try it if your eyes are getting tired and/or mid afternoon. Email or call if you have any questions. Have fun!
