Put your mouse down and Release your Eyes

Eyes may be the windows to the soul, but staring at your WINDOWS operating system can seriously overwork them. So go ahead and put your mouse down.

No really.

And look away from your computer screen and focus on the farthest thing you can see and hold your gaze for 5 seconds.
Then focus on your cuticles for 5 seconds (do you need a manicure?).
Look up and far away again and hold the gaze for 5 seconds (if you are gazing at a person and you catch their eye – just smile).
Now focus for 5 seconds on your palms and try to find your lifeline.

You have just worked out all the tiny muscles that control and focus your eyes.

Try to do this multiple times a day - to work out your eyes and keep them strong.
