Just like any other part of your body, your eyes need exercise.
Ever hear the term ~ repetitive motion syndrome? We usually equate that with wrist and/or elbow problems. With spending so much time on computers, reading and, for many, watching t.v., our eyes don't get the exercise they used to unless we do something to get them moving outside the little box we've put them in.
How to do that? The yogi's have created a series of exercises one can do to get them moving beyond their "normal" range of motion yet, to me, this is good but not quite as engaging as what I do.
My preference is to get out and walk and while walking, exercise my eyes by looking up to the sky, down to the ground, out to the horizon (left, right, in front), closer at the plants in various yards, etc. Of course, you still need to be aware of where you are going.
You may find, after a few days of this, your vision sharpens and your brain and thinking become clearer... How about that?
