Palming Exercise: Close your eyes gently and place your palms on eyes, so as to impede the light falling on your eyes. Make sure you don’t press your eyes though. While you are palming, do the stomach breathing and imagine about the most soothing and relaxing scenery. When you imagine this soothing scenery, you actually see it. Imagining and actually seeing, both initiate the same neurons. That is why, when you do this palming exercise, you not only relax your eyes but yourself too.

You can do it in the morning after you wake up, in work break and before you go to bed in the night.
