Close your eyes.
Close your eyes, fall in Love, stay there.
We spend so much time putting our focus outside of ourselves. And a huge amount of mental energy is spent on processing images. Think about it for a second. What do you use your eyes for? (...reading, cooking, Netflix, conversations, driving...)
Take a break from all the input. Close your eyes. (Not just yet, maybe after you’re finished reading this.) It is an act of self-care to simply stop taking in this barrage of visual information.
A few things to notice when you close your eyes:
Having your eyes closed is not sleeping, just like exhaling is not stopping breathing.
Even when you are work or waiting in line, try giving yourself a refreshing break by resting your eyes for several breaths.
