Palming helps in relaxation and improves blood circulation after a long day’s work.

 Move your eyes slowly from side to side and then round in a circle. You can also use a finger to guide you.

This stimulates the blood circulation of the optic nerve. This helps in improving the function of the eyes, brain, ears, nose, and other organs.
