When you’ve been on the computer all day, you haven’t had enough sleep, and you feel an ache starting to build up behind the eyes, what do you do? Palming is one of the best things that you can do!
Rub your palms together vigorously, to warm them up a little and cup them over your closed eyes. You shouldn’t be putting any pressure on the eyeballs, but the idea is to block out any light. Sit comfortably and stare into the blackness for a couple of minutes as you tune into your breathing. The combination of warmth and complete darkness is more relaxing to your eyes than sleep. For palming to work the best you need to relax, physically and mentally. Concentrate on your breaths to give your mind a little break at the same time!
