Eye Gaze Down and Out
Without overdoing it, keep eye gaze down and out to the sides. This is relative to the sockets--do not point the face down.
Rationale: In a state of apphrehension and vigilance, the eyes tend to be pointed up and in. This is known as a 'suspicious' or doubting look. Usually the head is tipped forward chronically (kyphosis) to keep the gaze straight ahead. The inferior recti muscles of the eyes, which pull them down and out, are innervated by he third cranial nerve, which part of the dorsal vagal system. The superior recti muscles, which pull the eyes up and in, are not innervated by the parasympathetic
