The eyes are used not only to see things but they also are an insight to how we are feeling. It has been said many times that “the eyes are the windows to the soul.” The eyes show your emotions and your inner truth. When you see someone in love, you can “see” that in her/his eyes. When someone is very excited, it shows in their eyes. New born babies eyes are very pure. It is hard to resist their sweet eyes. I also love older people’s deep eyes that are full of history, they are eyes which have known both happiness and sadness. You can “see” pain in the eyes and you can “see” a person’s history in their eyes. We communicate non-verbally with the eyes.
How to take care of your eyes
We take care of our skin externally by washing, putting on lotions and creams and getting facials.
We take care of our teeth by brushing them everyday.
How do you take care of your eyes?
Do you eat food that is supposed to be “good” for the eyes?
Do you go to see the eye doctor to have your eyes checked?
Do you take vitamins/supplements for the eyes?
There was a time I had really bad blood shot eyes. I could not leave the house without eye drops. I was using eye drops very frequently and was told by the eye doctor in Japan that too many eye drops make the symptoms, (bloodshot and dryness) worse!! I was super self conscious when I met people because I was worried about my eyes. “Do they look red?” “Do they look tired?” Those days are gone thanks to the eye exercises I do!
In order to keep a youthful look, the eye should be well taken care of, internally and also externally. The following exercise works on the eyes.
P.S. If you feel dizzy or disoriented when you do this exercise, sit down and do it at your own pace. You can do this pose with your eyes closed and in fact, that works better for bloodshot eyes! Try this and let me know how it works for you.
