1) Eye massage. This one is a lot simpler than it sounds. Close your eyes and GENTLY tap and massage around the edges of the socket. Keep doing this for a few minutes. You should find yourself relaxing, and when you re-open your eyes, you will feel refreshed and more awake.
2) Eye tracking. Hold a finger up in front of you, arm outstretched, and make a large, slow circle. Your finger should trace this invisible circle near the edges of where you can still clearly see it. Make a couple of circles in each direction (Tip: You can change hands halfway to make the circle large enough). This drill will help ensure that you are seeing everything in your visual field, including that cute guy…
3) Work with your computer at different distances or locations. Changing light, distance, and height all make a difference. Occasionally move the monitor back and forth a few inches, put the monitor up on some books, etc. If you work from a laptop, consider getting an external keyboard and monitor if you have the room and money. Even an external keyboard and pushing the laptop further away will make a significant difference.
