Hands on Eyes


Relaxes and soothes tired eye muscles, reduces eye strain, reduces overall stress, increases energy and more.


  • Step 1: Sit slightly forward on your chair, legs at a 90° angle, feet flat on the floor.  Contract your abdominal muscles, roll your shoulders back and down, and lift your chest up.
  • Step 2: Begin to rub your palms together briskly, and continue rubbing until they are very warm.  Keep your fingers apart from each other.
  • Step 3: When your palms feel very warm, close your eyes and gently place them over your eyelids.  Don’t press them into your eyes; instead, have them barely touch.  Allow the warmth from your hands to penetrate into your eye lids.  Keep your shoulders relaxed.
  • Step 4: Take a few deep breaths in and out, staying here as long as you like.  Repeat if necessary 1-2 times before you return to work.
