The Face Yoga Routine

It’s hard to get with this Yoga thing when you work at a desk all day. The only trouble is we get tired, tense and lethargic.

Here are 3 exercises that will get you a little more relaxed and feeling fresh without taking your fingers off the mouse or keyboard.

1. Close the right nostril with your right thumb and inhale through the left nostril. Do this to the count of four seconds.

2. Immediately close the left nostril with your right ring finger and little finger, and at the same time remove your thumb from the right nostril, and exhale through this nostril. Do this to the count of eight seconds. This completes a half round.

    Yoga Eyes

    To strengthen your eye muscles, and in turn decrease eyestrain try doing Yoga Eyes for 10 seconds.

    If you focus and refocus your eyes on objects at differing distances, this will offset eyestrain and can even slow the deterioration of your vision.

    For example, look up from your work and gaze out a window into the far distance, then shift your focus to something at close range, even a streak on the window glass itself.

    Mouth Yoga

    This one’s a little more fun and lighthearted, but it’ll attribute to your relaxation and good humor. You don’t have to be a Yoga freak, just let loose with those facial expressions and afterwards, your face will thank you.
