 Whaaaaat uuuupppp playyaaaass!! 

Found this awesome exercise for reducing strain on the eye muscles which coincidently really relaxes you and enables you to hold 'seriously amazing magnetic super sexy soft lazer beam eyes'. Which is the only way I can really explain how this feels. 

I'm sure a lot fo the nutrition nerds here know that nothing in the body is isolated, that everything is all connected.....and it's no different for the eyes! The eyes get strained when the body is tired or tense which includes the neck muscles, shoulders and surrounding areas. Apparently all eye disorders stem from strain on the eyes and people have claimed to have immense benefit on their eyesight from this. 

The technique is called Palming, invented by a guy named Dr Bates. Ill posts links below that describe in more detail how to do it. Its really simple, you sit with your elbows rested on a table or your knees and cup your palms against your eyes with your fingers resting on your forehead and the bottom of your palms against the cheek bone. Rub your hands before you do this because that will make them warm and apparently increases energy in the hands. Dont press against your eyes though. It should become pitch black. You shouldnt be able to see a thing. Now imagine your eyes resting against soft black silk cushions (no homo). This really helps them fully relax. And if you're feeling really good then send your eyes some love and care (full homo). You'll really feel them relax. Try and calm your mind. You can do this for a minute, ten minutes or up to half an hour. 

This shit almost chills me out more than meditation. And I only do this for a couple minutes max. Like really fucking chills me out. But whats cooler is my ability to hold really relaxed solid eye contact is INSANE. I swear to god dude. Try it for just a couple minutes when taking a shit or at a desk. 

No figity eye contact. Just full on ease. Locked on. Like an amazing magnetic super sexy soft lazer beam. Insane how this relaxes your body as well. 

Surprised no one has mentioned it on here. Doing it before meditation will really help your meditation sessions as well. 

Those who wear glasses or contact lenses will probably get a lot more out of doing this. I spend at least 10 hours a day in front of a screen and get a lot of eye strain and this is by far the best thing I've found on relaxing my mind and improving my sight. 

Check it out.

WTF, looks stupid. He doesn't explain how it works. How does cupping your eyes with your palm rest them? Why not just close your eyes?

I only tried it for a short while but I think it's because just by closing your eyes there's still light coming through.

There is one video of this guy on TedX where he tested his breathing techniques using a volunteer guy wired to a computer measuring unit. I can't find it. Please post the video if you know what I'm talking about.

Lol yeah does look a little silly. But then again so does tapping your face and saying "I deeply and completely love and accept myself". EFT works brilliant. 

Sometimes sleep isnt enough to really relax your eye muscles. Not to the degree that this does. Its the combination of complete darkness, wamrth, the cupping and the visualization. 

Also you're better of crossing your fingertipes on your forehead than leaving them straight. Feels better most people say. As well as resting your elbows on a table in comparison to holding them in the air. 

The links describe it a lot better.

Most people do it on a desk in a closed space where no one is watching. If someone asks what you're doing, just say you were crying because Julien stole your girl.

This seems like one of those things that works because you believe it does.
