Relief for Tired Eyes

Tired, Burning, and Itching

We've all been there, right? Our eyes are aching from staring at the computer screen but we have to write nonetheless. Sometimes there's just no way around it. You have to be in front of that bright screen, that window to cyber life.

There's hope! There's relief! No, really, there is.

I'm going to share with you what I do.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Cucumbers cut in slices
  • Small freezer bags

Here's what to do:

Place the the cucumber slices in freezer bags where they'll lay flat and not stick together. Lay the bags flat in the freezer. When your eyes are burning, itching, and hurting, go to the freezer and grab a couple of those slices. Let them thaw a little. Lean back or lay down in a quiet, relaxing spot - if that's possible! - and let your poor overworked eyes soak up all that cool goodness. Your eyes will thank you and you'll love that refreshing feeling the cold cucumber leaves.

I took my own advice and did this just today. It's great! I loved how my eyes felt afterward. Take care of your eyes; take a few minutes out of your day and reward them with this amazing treatment. You'll be so glad you did!

And, you'll definitely have a much nicer time writing the cyber highway!
