Tired eyes are a common problem with today’s lifestyle. Our eyes are glued to those LED screens, be it at the office while working on computers, or using our smartphones.

To help you recover from the impact of these habits, we are going to talk about some healthy tips that can help. So, let us have a look at those tips one by one –
Tip 1 – Begin your day with a splash of water
While in many cultures waking up in the morning and splashing your face with cold water is recommended as the best way to wake up, there is a good scientific reason behind it as well. Splashing water on the face actually makes the facial arteries restrict initially, which decreases the blood flow to your face. This lack of blood flow works as a trigger for the nervous system to make you more alert and prepares you to get out and start the day!
Remember: Test the water before you splash for optimum temperature. And, splash at least three times to wake up and get rid of grogginess.
Tip 2 – Put your face in a bowl of water
Another great way to begin your day is to get up and submerge your face in a bowl of cold water. You can begin practicing this habit by submerging the face for 30 seconds during initial days and gradually increase it up to your capabilities. This works in the same way as mentioned above, but is more effective.
Remember: Don’t forget to check the temperature of water. And, also take a deep breath before submerging the face in the bowl.
Tip 3 – A cold-water eye mask is all you need
