All the Better to See You With

Handy Andy's health tip of the day: Clean your glasses!  Run them under cold water every morning before you put them on.  Dry them, of course.  Your bright perspective will shine longer if you do.

Folks who work in a difficult environment know how good it feels to pull off the work clothes as soon as they come home and put on something fresh. From my background of study related to how our energy works, I've found that something heavy and similar to our day gets imbedded in our garments, jewelry or anything that is on our bodies all day.   Our glasses, especially the metal parts--hinges, earpiece stabilizers, nose pad mechanisms--collect and hold the energy of our thoughts for the day.  Washing off the difficulties of yesterday is part of the Things I get to do today to feel better physically, emotionally and mentally.

So if you're bothered by heaviness around the face, sinus problems, headaches, tightness in the temples, be aware of how you feel when your glasses are off.  Notice what happens when you put your glasses back on.  Then run them under cold water for 15 to 20 seconds.  Dry them, try them on and see how they feel. The cold water holds and removes the energy accumulated leaving the specks clean and lighter. If your eyes feel tired in the middle of the day, try the cold-water wash right then.

Not only might you see/feel better, but your thoughts about your day could improve as well.  You be the judge.


  1. I never wash my glasses. I always use a cleaning cloth and sometimes I feel like I just smudge them even more.

    1. Oh, my! Well, give this a try. Then let me know what you think, OK?
