Have you ever heard the expression that eyes are the windows to the soul? I have, and I believe there is some truth to it. The eyes communicate in non-verbal ways. When we are happy you can see it in our eyes. When we are sad, that is also reflected in our eyes.
There are times when people get tired and eyes start to droop or the ability to concentrate goes out the window. This is especially hard if you feel fatigue when you are at work. Work requires attentive and engaged eyes. Most of us have days that we would prefer to close our eyes for a while. hanging a sign saying, “out to lunch” or “mid-afternoon energy slump taking 30”. When that can't happen, there are little things that can.
