A description of my journey to improve my eyesight naturally

I spoke with my sister yesterday and she made some very useful comments about my post yesterday.  I had stated that I was looking for some kind of ‘routine’ in order to structure my Bates practice.  She made a good point though- if I do the same thing everyday, it may halt progress as my eyes may stop paying attention and my brain would probably become bored.  She’s completely right and so rather than finding a set of things I do everyday I’m going to type up all of the relaxation techniques and recommendations from the Bates Magazines and keep some visible cards of little things I can do throughout the day.  Of course I’ll still be doing my ‘sketch, breathe, and blink’ all day, in addition to my morning routine, and autogenics training.    I guess I’m just having a hard time changing my left-brain personality of order and schedules 🙂

My autogenics training is going really well.  Tomorrow will be my last day of the heaviness phase.  It’s a really good exercise in learning to be aware of your body and how to relax the muscles.  I’m going to finish this through to the end and I think it will be a valuable relaxation tool for the rest of my life.

Today I completed:

  • 30 minute relaxation while lying down with my eyebag over my eyes
  • 2 ‘both arm and leg’ heaviness A.T. sessions
  • 30 minutes outside time in my yard playing with my dog
