My Dear Child,
The action of winking may be simple for our body, but very important. Winking protects the eyes from the wind, from intense light; it also helps to distribute the tears in our eyes, whenever we laugh or cry. It also helps to give the brain a short rest.
A person blinks approximately every five seconds, but the speed or constancy of the blink depends on the activity we are doing. When we read or are in front of a screen, the eyes blink slower because of the attention that is required. It’s good to close your eyes to give them a break, but, unless it’s not your time to take a nap, don’t fall asleep while doing this exercise!
The Bible tells us, “In the twinkling of an eye, when Christ returns… we will be transformed.” 1 Corinthians 15:52
With much love,
