Isn't it strange how things just happen? I've set as part of my goals for this year the twin aspects of clarity and focus (because I get so easily distracted - thank you facebook!). And co-incidentally, as I was scouring google I came across Donna Eden's 31 day eye challenge! Perhaps the Universe is giving me a signal.
I do spend a lot of time on the computer, I can feel that my eyes are not as flexible as they used to be and as I've been wearing glasses for the past 30 years, I thought this challenge might be good and it certainly wouldn't do any harm.
So on 1st January I started the challenge. (Almost) each day of the January I went onto YouTube and spend between 4 and 10 minutes doing the challenge along with some of Donna Eden's students. And I really do feel it's made a positive difference!
Now I can't say that my eyesight has improved (I'll need to wait for my next eye test to know if that's the case), but my eyes do feel more relaxed and lighter and brighter.
I would recommend this routine to anyone who uses a computer or phone for any length of time (which is probably 95% of the people reading this). And I've enjoyed doing it so much that I decided to record a session to share with you. It's easy to do; the sequence is easy to remember; and it can be done in about 4 minutes flat. So, have a watch of my video and next time you're about to jump into the car, or at some point during your working day, take 4 minutes out to do your eye exercises.
I find that the best results happen when you do the eye exercises regularly - it's like any exrcise really - so add it to your daily routine for the best results.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul and my Neuro-Linguistic Programming training suggests that the position of your eyes indicates which part of the brain you're accessing, so the eye exercises might also help to clear negative thoughts and feelings - if you keep it up (as do the Emotional Detox sessions that I offer).
