To relax the optic nerve you will need to close your eyes and visualize looking at the inside of your eye lids. You will be seeing the color black if you do this correctly.

Eye Relaxation Techniques Our mind can visualize different colors depending on our thoughts that lead our visualizations. The color black will allow the optic nerve to perform the least amount of activity.

This relaxation technique is the most easiest to use while at work along with palming.

The use of an eye mask is both calming and therapeutic. This also helps so that you don’t have to focus so hard at holding your eyes closed which in turn allows a more complete relaxation.
