End of a long day, eyes feel dry and tired


Blink regularly. Also, these two simple massages will help stimulate the tear ducts that moisten and refresh your eyes. I often do both, one after another. If you wear contact lenses, be sure to remove them first.

1. Rub hands together to warm them up. Rest elbows on a table and cup hands over both eyes, with heels of palms on cheeks. Take a few deep breaths, then move hands higher and gently apply light pressure to each eye with heel of palm. Hold for a moment, then release.

2. Use thumbs, to gently massage your brow, starting between eyebrows and moving toward temples. Repeat, using fingertips to apply light pressure to the same spots (see photo). When finished, open your eyes wide and take several deep, relaxing breaths.
