🎀3 Top Tips🎀
Carrots aren’t only for Rudolph!🥕
Did you know, there are lots of yummy foods that are amazing for promoting eye health.
Carrots are a great one to start with, as they contain beta-carotene, which your body converts into Vitamin A – a nutrient essential for eye health.
Some other great options this Christmas are: Sweet Potato, Spinach, Corn, Oranges, Blueberries… and everyone’s favourite, good old Brussels Sprouts.
Have fun with your food this Christmas and see which eye health boosting foods work best for you.
Most of our New Years resolutions probably have us joining the gym or running a marathon by the end of the year.
Now… whether or not we actually commit to these is another story, but an easy way to start some good habits is to warm up with some easy eye workouts.
2 easy workouts you can try:
Eye Rolls – Now you have the perfect excuse to roll your eyes when you receive YET ANOTHER pair of socks this Christmas.
Focus Shifting – This is when you look at your Christmas dinner for 10 seconds, and then shift your focus for another 10 seconds to the dessert that’s been eyeing you up on the kitchen counter.
It’s as easy as that!
Time to relax
Give your eyes the gift of a nice, toasty compress. This not only helps you to de-stress from all them hours of decorating the Christmas tree, but also helps to reduce strain on your eyes.
The heat from the compress will relax the muscles around your eyes, and relieve some uncomfortable/ painful symptoms you may be experiencing.
Eye masks from the Eye Doctor, available at Telford Opticians, could also help you relieve some symptoms attached to dry eye – such as grittiness and itching.
🎄No matter what you get up to this Christmas, make sure to have fun and stay safe. Merry Christmas Everyone!🎄
