Focusing too much on my apps and studies without any thought to my health has caught up with me. Sitting at the computer for long hours at a stretch, not exercising and not relaxing my eyes has made my eyes weak. And as I don’t go out much, I never realized how weak.
Yesterday, I got a new pair of glasses. Thick, high-powered glasses, which feel damn uncomfortable. The power of my glasses has nearly doubled since I last had a checkup (which was 3 years ago).
So I have decided, that I will get rid of them. I haven’t taken proper care of my eyes till now, but that changes today.
I will take a five minute break after every 25 minutes in front of the computer and I will relax and exercise my eyes in that time. I will also do the exercises every day just after waking up and before sleeping.
I will write about these exercises in detail in the next post.
For keeping track of time, I have started using a timer app which rings an alarm every 25 minutes and reminds to take a 5 minute break.
My goal in this challenge is not too ambitious, By the 15th of August I want to be able to make out what is written on my guitar from where I sit, without glasses.
My guitar, around two meters away from me, looks like this when I am wearing my glasses.
And this is what it looks like without glasses (today, on 14th July 2016)
I am posting about this challenge over here so that I stick to it and not backslide on my word.
