Watering Eyeballs

Last Update: May 15, 2018

Watering Eyeballs

  • Swimming without goggles,

  • Racing along the highway with the wind and the dust in your face, and no goggles.

  • Staring out to sea in the heat of the summer sun, no sunglasses,

  • In the Sahara in a sandstorm. Facing the sand,

  • Staring at a computer monitor for hours without a break.

Which would you do, without goggles or a break?


All the money in the world cannot replace your health and YOU are the only you that you have.

Take care of your eyes, give them a break, rinse with cold water and gaze at the horizon for a few minutes.

Stand up and stretch your back. Your Spine can settle into a rather fixed position while sitting down.

Lay on the floor and curl up like a baby and hug your legs then stretch out with arms above and toes pointed to stretch your whole body.

This can take less than 5 minutes to do and can help to reset your mind and emotions at the same time.


Take Care.

Hi Viyee, thanks for reminding us how important it is to consider our eyes and our bodies. I know what you mean about our eyes when we are in front of the screen for hours at a time and for sitting for that length of time also. :-) Frank

Thanks Frank.
We are so dependant on our eyes and in fact our general health to do this kind of business that I feel maybe I should have written more. But we are all adults and I hope a gentle reminder is all we need.

Excellent and important advice. I had some issues with my eyes. Getting away from the screen and being in outdoor light really helped. I also wear the blue light blocking glasses.

Thanks Debbie. Do they work?
I read that we should have at least a half hour break after TV or monitor watching to let our brains regulate to a more relaxed state and get some natural blinking going to moisten our eyes.
It is easy to forget the time and pound the keyboard for hours in this business.
The daylight lamp I have beside my PC has really helped me.
Got to look after the body, It is what carries the mind around.

Well, I was getting these bright flashes that interfered with my vision. Since I started wearing the glasses, spent less time in front of the screen and supplemented with lutein and zeaxanthin, I haven't had any flashes. I think I need to get the daylight lamp as well. Definitely have to have a healthy lifestyle.

Sounds like a good move.
It does not have to be a really expensive lamp. a desktop with a "Daylight " bulb inserted works very well.

too much screen time can take a toll on your body ... we need to exercise every so often it will stimulate our brains in addition to our bodies. good reminder.

Thanks Steven.
I do agree. I try to get up and move about regularly and always feel really refreshed when I sit down again.
