eyes wide shut.

I love Dr. Oz as you ought to know by now… Recently he had Dr. Sanjay Gupta on his show for the first time- needless to say I was excited.

I will add more posts from this episode later but for now I want to talk about keeping your eyes closed…

Did I mention that Dr. Gupta is a neurosurgeon? So he may know a thing or two…

Do activities with your eyes closed except for when you actually need them! So don’t go driving around with your eyes shut! Dr. Gupta does a lot of his morning activities such as tying his tie, tying his shoes, getting dressed- all with his eyes closed. He says we don’t use all of our senses enough and we should give the occipital lobe a rest- the part of our brain responsible for our vision and visual processing.

I’m all for this and am gonna try to incorporate this into my daily!
