The main thing is that your whole body is pierced by rays of energy – the light of stars or the sun, blue rays from the sky or green through the foliage. Energy should gently fill and relax the whole body. Yogis believe that such an exercise increases the effectiveness of all procedures. A contemplation, even if imagined, of beautiful natural landscapes improves vision.

Breathe slowly and deeply, you can just hold your breath for breath and after inhaling. Try not to blink until your eyes get tired. If they start to water, rest. Give your eyes a minute to relax, and go on to the next exercise.
3. Turns to the sides
Sitting in any comfortable position or standing, without moving your head, slowly and evenly breathing, look at your right shoulder, fix there look for a minute. Then look at the left shoulder and also look at it for a minute. With time, you can increase the time to three minutes. But try so that the eyes do not get tired.
4. Rotation of the eyes
Also in a comfortable position, with a straight back and an upward neck, gently and evenly taking a breath, point the eye up. On exhalation – look down. On inhalation, look at the right arc from the bottom up, on the exhalation along the left arc – from the top down. Make the rotation of the eyes to the right three times. Slightly relax, then repeat the exercise with the rotation to the left.
The muscles of the face and the whole body should be as relaxed as possible.
