5 Keys to Naturally Better Vision
Our vision is our primary means of relationship to the world
around us. Of the five physical senses, vision is the most dominant
and useful sense.
Yet, over half the people in this country (U.S.A) wear glasses
or contacts. Needing corrective-lenses to see clearly is now
considered normal, though there are ways to have better vision
naturally without the use of any artificial means and complicated
procedures like surgery. In this , I will disclose 5 keys to
naturally better vision that has been tried and tested by thousands
of individuals over years.
Key#1 Blink Regularly: Blinking is a natural preserver
of your better vision. Blinking cleanses and lubricates the
eyes. When there is no tension, your eyes blink 10-12 times
every minute, or about once every 5 seconds. But people who
do not see clearly tend to stare and unconsciously hold their
eyes open, which causes strain as well as the feeling of dry
and tired eyes. Consciously remind yourself to blink every 3-5
seconds. The more you blink the better it is for your eyes.
Your eyelid is controlled by only one muscle. By having proper
relaxation in that muscle, it can promote relaxation throughout
the entire body. Flutter Blinking: To practice Flutter Blinking,
blink your eyes lightly and rapidly 10 to 20 times. Do not strain
or squeeze your eyes shut and relax your face as you blink.
Then close your eyes and relax. Repeat this 2 or 3 times. Flutter
Blinking will help to keep your eyes moist, relaxed and free
Key # 2 Use your Peripheral Vision Your eyes may be
offering you more than you realize. At the same time that you
are focusing on one object, images are also coming into your
eyes from your peripheral awareness â€“ from the left and the
right, and from the front of and behind what you are directly
looking at. But unfortunately, people with poor vision have
trained their minds to so intently focus on just one thing that
they block out their peripheral awareness. This â€œputting on
of blindersâ€ breeds mental fatigue and a tense style of concentration.
Whatever you are looking at, always remind yourself to be aware
of your peripheral vision. Consciously remember to be aware
of everything at the same time that you are looking at one point.
Key# 3 Keep your Eyes Moving and Change your Focus.
Staring is the most commonly practiced bad habit in regards
to poor vision. Keeping your eyes moving and changing your focus
is the most direct and powerful way to break the staring habit.
Normally, the eye moves slightly 50-60 times every single second,
constantly changing what it is looking at. This subtle movement
is essential for clear vision; you can unlock tension in your
visual system by remembering to change your focus frequently.
This encourages your eyes to become more relaxed. Whatever you
may be doing with your eyes, you should always remember to shift
your focus and keep your eyes moving.
Key#4 Avoid Daydreaming The word daydreaming is used
to mean any mental activity â€“ whether or not it involves images,
that captures a personâ€™s focus while their eyes are open. There
isnâ€™t anything wrong with the creative use of the imagination,
but when daydreaming becomes a habit it can have a negative
effect on your vision. Hereâ€™s why: If you close your eyes and
imagine looking at a distant scene, your eyes respond to that,
and change their focus, as they would if they were actually
looking at that distant scene. So, if youâ€™re driving down the
road and youâ€™re thinking about something else, your eyes are
caught in a dilemma â€“ what should they be seeing? On the one
hand, they are trying to bring the road into focus and on the
other hand, are trying to focus on whatâ€™s in your mind. This
causes you to stare, creates visual tension and sends mixed
messages to your brain.
Key # 5 Look with the â€œEyes of a Childâ€ Engage in
your world as a child would â€“ with excitement, freshness, awe
and wonder â€“ as if you are seeing everything for the first time.
If you are remembering to blink, to move your eyes and shift
focus, to use your peripheral vision and to avoid daydreaming,
you can get stuck in the trap of just mechanically using your
eyes. Thereâ€™s a big difference between seeing and actively looking.
Thereâ€™s always something new and different to notice.
Apply these 5 tips consciously and regularly and youâ€™ll find
that not only will your eyes start to feel more relaxed but
your seeing will become clearer. If you want a complete method
