Palming: While seated, brace your elbows on the desk and close to the desk edge. Let your weight fall forward and slowly cup your hands over your eyes. Now close your eyes and inhale slowly through nose and hold this position for 4 seconds. Release your breath and relax. Repeat these deep breathing exercises for 15-30 seconds.

Eye Movements: Close your eyes. Now open the same and slowly and gently move eyes up to the ceiling, then towards the floor, repeat this 10 times. Now slowly and gently move eyes to the left and then slowly to the right. Repeat 10 times.

Focus Change: Hold one of your fingers a few inches away from the eye. Now focus on the finger and slowly move the finger away and hold the distant position while focusing your eyes on the finger, then slowly bring the finger back to within a few inches of the eye.

Deep Breathing: While standing, place one hand on the abdomen and one on the chest, inhale slowly through the nose, and hold for 2 to 4 seconds and then exhale slowly through the mouth.
