Have two minutes? Take a little break to soothe your eyes with an eye massage. If you work on the computer for an extended period of time, or do other detailed work, you probably find that your eyes get tired before the day is done. Self-massage relieves tired eyes by increasing circulation to the eye area.
Keeping your eyes closed, use your middle finger to massage the eye-socket bones and down to the bridge of the nose. Repeat 8-10 times.
Press on the the pressure points just under the brow bone below the inner eyebrows and count to 3. Then press at temples and do the same.
Using your thumbs, gently press on the area right above the inner corner of the eyes where the crease of your lid begins. Press slowly and release. Repeat this exercise 5 times.
Using your middle fingers, massage the hollow area which is located in the temples on the side of your face using an up and down motion. Continue to massage the area for 1 minute.
Using the tips of your index fingers, gently massage the area located in the back of the skull, directly behind the eyes. Take care not to press to hard since this is a tender spot. Continue to massage the area for 1 minute.
