Next, roll your eyes by looking up and circle ten times both clockwise and anticlockwise. Hold an object such as a spoon at arm’s length and focus your eyes on it as you slowly move it close to your eyes and further at arm’s length. Keep doing this to the count of ten.
After that, use your thumb knuckles to massage your temples by making small circular motions. Do this twenty times both clockwise and anticlockwise. Do the same between your eyebrows and below the eyes on each side of the nose bridge.
