Rub the palm of your hands together briskly until they get fairly warm, then you should cup your hands over your eyes and leave them there until the warmth goes away. You should only place your hands over your eyes and do not put any pressure on them. Do this for a total of five to six minutes, you should also try doing some deep breathing exercises as well while you are at it.
Another way to make your eyes relax is by massaging them gently with your fingertips. With your eyes closed, place your fingertips gently on your eyelids and then with a small circular motion, begin to massage the eyeballs until they are well-relaxed.
