Working from home is the new normal for many of us. While it has it perks like saving commute time. It also means staring at device screens for very long hours. This can lead to eye strain, causing discomfort, pain, and fatigue in the eyes. It can also lead to headaches and difficulty focusing.
Lucky for you Ayurveda offers some great remedies that can help reduce eye strain and relieve your eye fatigue.
Let’s take a look at some of the best Ayurveda remedies to reduce eye strain.
Triphala (a mix of three Ayurvedic herbs) is known for its cleansing and rejuvenating properties. Boil some water and add a pinch of triphala powder. Let the mixture cool down and strain it. Use the solution as an eye wash to soothe your eyes. If you prefer a more convenient way of taking Triphala, you can also try our Triphala tablets. These tablets dissolve in water to make a refreshing and easy-to-drink beverage.
Rosewater has a cooling effect on the eyes. Soaking cotton pads in rose water and placing them on closed eyes for 10-15 minutes will rejuvenate your tired eyes.
Palming is a simple technique to relieve eye strain quickly.
Rub your palms together to generate heat and place them over your closed eyes. Feel the warmth and relax for a few minutes. Repeat this exercise a few times a day to keep your eyes relaxed.
Blinking helps keep the eyes lubricated. Most people tend to blink less while working in front of a screen, which leads to dry eyes. So, make sure to blink frequently while working to avoid dry eyes.
Simple eye exercises can relieve eye strain and improve blood circulation. Roll your eyes in a clockwise and anticlockwise direction, look up and down, and sideways. Repeat these exercises several times a day to keep your eyes refreshed.
