After that, you slowly remove your hands and open your eyes again.
Do you have puffy eyes, you can add an eye pillow in the freezer for one hour before and do like the picture.







Four directions exercise
Sit comfortably and keep your head straight. Then, look as far as you can in all four directions in two or three seconds: up, down, left and then right. Repeat three times. Note: move only the eyes and not on the head.

Eye Hole Massage
A gentle massage is very relaxing for the eyes. Massage the area below the eyebrows with the top of your thumbs in circular movements - from the bridge of the nose to the outer edges of the eyelids.


Relaxing eyes exercise
Sit up straight and stretch one arm in front of your nose with the thumb pointing upwards. Now choose five objects: tip of the nose, your outstretched arm, your thumb and two additional objects that are further away in the room. View all of the items in turn. Rest your eyes on any object for a few breaths. Finally, use both eyes and let your eyes wander over the tip of the nose, arm, thumb and the two objects. Finally, look into the distance.

Shifting distance
Keep your right index finger in front of the eye in about half an arm away from the eye. Keep the left index finger about 15 centimeters behind the right. Watching from finger to finger with a steady rhythm. Do this for one minute. 

Butterfly exercise (to prevent dry eyes)
Look forward, keep your head straight and relax the facial muscles and the lower jaw muscles. Open and close both eyelids up to 20 times. Relax the muscles all the time - the eyelids should move smoothly and easily as a butterfly's wings.
