Rub your palms together and then keep them on the eyes. Slowly open the eyes in your palms and relaxed. This takes out the stress and tiredness out of your eye muscles. Regular practice will improve the eyesight too.

Neck Exercise

Sit in a relaxed posture, keeping both eyes open. Slowly move it backwards as far as it can comfortably stretching the neck. Again try to stretch your neck sideways till the right ear touches right shoulder. Bring it back the original position. Try on the opposite side too. Drop your head forward and gently put the chin down towards the chest. Rotate your neck as wide as possible so that your right ear glides past the right shoulder. Perform this exercise five times. This will release the stiffness and tension in your neck and shoulders.

Backward Exercise

Sit on the chair placing both hands behind your back. Use palms to support your back inhaling the breath. Elongate your spine by arching upwards and exhale the air. Drop your head backward giving the spine a good stretch. Inhale and come back to the starting position. Repeat the exercise 3-4 rounds. This helps in stretching the spine.
