A Simple Treatment To Make Your Eye Pain Disappear

As the song goes: ”…Summertime and the living is e-a-s-y….” Here in Florida we know that the living is easy because it’s so hot who wants to be doing anything except either sitting in the shade, or inside in the air conditioning. Personally, I don’t think this summer was so bad, especially the evenings, but then, I really hate the cold so maybe my opinion is biased.
To stay in alignment with “living is easy,” I’m taking the advice of a few experts who teach easy ways to stay calm, motivated, and happy. I’m taking a 30-day break from the news. It’s so much in my face lately that it’s really affecting me in a very negative way. So far, I’m two days into my 30 days.
I’ve decided that I want to take away some of the stress that seems to be normal for everyone. To that end I was listening to a speaker who was talking about the dangers of stress and what it does to the body. Really frightening! He was saying that negative news sells and, for example, in the 1990’s in one city of the USA, homicides had gone down 42%, but the local TV station increased its coverage of homicides by 700%. It’s only gotten worse in 2019. It’s making us think we live in a dangerous country, and it sure isn’t helping our blood pressure.
To solve that problem, this speaker recommended going on a “news fast” for 30 days. Absolutely no negative news of any kind for a full month. I’m surrounded by news all day so it’s a challenge, but I’ve found a great substitute: www.GoodNewsNetwork.org. Their mission is to be an antidote to the barrage of negativity experienced in the mainstream media.
So, I want to share this with you, and if you have any other good news stations/websites you love, please feel free to share it with me.
I think I’m off to the beach with a big umbrella and a thermos of ice-cold tea! Living the e-a-s-y life!
Have a relaxing month!
Eye Strain And Eye Pain
This week I had a client come to the office with a situation that is pretty rare. He described his pain as on his eyeball, which then referred to the entire top half of his skull. It was like drawing a line that went under his eyes, through his ears, and around his head. It was definitely a headache but concentrated on his eyes. He was in desperate need of eye pain relief.
This client works in an industry that has the computer screen changing frequently and he’s needing to locate information on the new screen quickly. He has experienced eye strain before, but other times just having the weekend off has resolved the problem. This time the pain didn’t go away.
We don’t ever think about the muscles that move our eyes, but they can get repetitively strained just like any other muscle in the body. This especially happens if you are watching something that has your eye moving back and forth rapidly, like a game on your computer or phone.
The muscles that are most prone to a repetitive strain injury are the ones on the top of the eye and on the outside of the eye. I’m not an eye doctor so I can’t explain why these two muscles cause more problems than the others, but my experience has shown this to be the truth.
Eye Pain Relief
Put your fingertip directly onto your eyeball and press down GENTLY.
Slide your finger from the top of your eyeball to the outside of your eyeball.
If you find a point where it is tender, that’s the spasm that is putting a strain on your eyeball. Just leave your fingertip on that point for 30 seconds.
You may even get a light show while doing this, with different shapes and colors.
You’ll find that this simple treatment will soothe tired eyes at the end of the day. But remember, the pressure needs to be light and gentle.
Why stay in pain when it’s so easy to find the muscular source of the problem and eliminate it?
