- Step 1: Sit forward in your chair, legs at 90 degrees, feet flat on the floor. Pull in your abdominal muscles, roll your shoulders back and down, and lift your chest up. Ensure your neck is straight, with your chin slightly tucked.
- Step 2: Begin by closing your eyes for a moment and breathing deeply and slowly. Then, open your eyes and slowly turn them to the right, as far as you can. Then move your eyes all the way to the left. Look back in forth in each direction a few times. Look as far as you can in each direction, but do not strain your eyes. Keep your head and neck in the same position as you move your eyes from side to side. Then, close your eyes and rest for a moment.
- Step 3: Open your eyes again. This time, move your eyes up toward the ceiling all the way. Then, down toward the floor. Do this a few times, back and forth. Again, look as far as you can in each direction, but do not strain your eyes. Move slowly and mindfully. Do not move your head or neck as you move your eyes up and down.
- Step 4: When finished, stop and rest with your eyes closed. Rub the palms of your hands together briskly until they feel warm, then place your palms over your eyes for a few moments. Let the warmth from your hands soothe your tired eyes. If you like, massage your temples and face with your hands before you head back to work.
- Step 5: Repeat this exercise whenever you feel eye strain at your computer.
