Why Are My Eyes Puffy in the Morning?
Puffy eyes in the morning is a relatively common problem and generally isn't symptomatic of a serious problem. While puffy eyes can make you look tired, they are usually not dangerous to your health. S...imple factors such as age and the horizontal position of sleep can contribute to morning puffy eyes. While the puffiness eyes usually goes away over time on its own, you can take some proactive steps to shorten the time to recovery.
Puffy eyes are generally distinguished by a mild swelling under the eyes. This condition is also known colloquially as "bags under the eyes."
Puffy eyes become more common as you age, according to MayoClinic.com. The muscles and supportive tissues around your eyes begin to weaken as you age, and the fat that helps support the eyes can sometimes move forward. When this fat travels under your eye, the skin may puff out. The swollen appearance of puffy eyes can also be the result of liquid flowing into the area under your eyes and accumulating. These factors may be more prominent in the morning, as sleeping horizontally encourages fat and fluid to accumulate in the depression under the eye. Other common causes for puffy eyes include lack of sleep, allergies, dehydration, fluctuating hormone levels and hereditary factors.
The effects of puffy eyes in the morning are generally cosmetic rather than medical. Puffy eyes can result in anything from mild inflammation to dark circles. In extreme cases, eye swelling may increase pressure on your eyes to the point of discomfort, in which case your should seek treatment.
There are many remedies for puffy eyes, but simple rest and time are usually enough to reduce the swelling around your eyes, particularly if your eyes are puffy in the morning. Additional suggestions to speed up the healing process include drinking more water, placing cool cucumbers on your eyes, placing moistened tea bags over your eyes for a few minutes or applying a soothing eye cream.
Advanced medical treatments are usually not necessary for puffy eyes in the morning, but may be necessary if you have a chronic and repetitive case of puffy eyes that home remedies cannot help. Skin treatments and eyelid surgery may help prevent puffy eyes on a more permanent basis, according to MayoClinic.com. Laser treatments and chemical peels can help improve skin tone and tighten the skin to prevent puffy eyes, while eyelid surgery can remove excess fat and sagging skin.
In more unusual circumstances, puffy eyes may be reflective of more serious eye conditions. If your puffy eyes are accompanied by blurred vision or pain, you should consider visiting an eye specialist

Feel free to skip ahead and to go back.
1.Drink eight glasses of pure water a day.
2.Get rid of any junk food in your house. If it’s not there, don’t go get it.
3.Limit your caffeine intake: one to two cups of coffee a day.
4.Plan your weekly meals on your day off.
5.Spend 30 minutes twice a week cutting up fresh veggies to have them ready at all times.
6.Keep seasonal fruit at home and eat it when you’re hungry or when a sweet tooth strikes.
7.Substitute raw nuts and seeds for processed granola bars.
8.Don’t drink alcohol on an empty stomach; it’s hard on your stomach and burns up B vitamins.

10.Purchase as much of your food organic as you can. Your body will appreciate it as will our planet.
11.Next time you make cookies or cake, substitute half of the butter with applesauce, pumpkin or prune puree. Less fat; more nutrients.
12.Get at least eight hours of sleep a night.
13.Vary your food; if you eat it today, don’t eat it for four days.
14.Different colored food has different nutrients, so eat from the rainbow: red peppers, orange carrots, green kale, etc.
15.Thicken soups with pureed beans. Delicious and added nutrition.
16.Don’t drink water from plastic bottles. Polycarbonate water bottles (labeled #7) contain bisphenol A (BPA), which leaches from the plastic and has been linked to chromosome damage and hormone disruption.
17.Start your day with a glass of fresh lemon water. 1/2 to 1 juiced lemon in water. Your liver loves it.
18.De-stress. Find out what works for you. Warm baths? Exercise? Reading? Yoga? Walks in the woods? Find out what calms and soothes you and practice daily.
19.Move daily. Find the movement that moves your body and eases your mind and make it a part of who you are. If you enjoy it, you will do it.
20.Eat at a table, cloth napkin on your lap and chew well. Be thankful.
21.Next time you want scrambled eggs (or tofu), sauté some veggies first, then add eggs. Try eating your veggies all day!
22.Dry brush your skin before you shower in the morning. It’s good for your lymphatic system and your skin will be so much softer and healthier.
23.Have at least one day a week without meat. Meatless Monday perhaps.
24.Eat more beans! They’re high in protein, dietary fiber, and taste so good.
25.Use whole grain flour in your baking instead of white flour. Whole-wheat pastry flour is a fine grind and much healthier than the white stuff.
26.Remove white sugar from your diet or at least limit it. Use maple syrup, honey, agave or stevia instead.
27.Don’t eat fake food! No artificial anything!
28.Don’t eat out as much. Cook more.
29.Exercise your mind! Learn a new dance, read a good book. Learn a new language. Keep your mind moving as well as your body.
30.Learn to communicate better. Speak your mind, kindly, and be done with it. Don’t hold grudges. Forgive yourself and others.
31.Make your own vinaigrette for your salads. Olive and/or flax oil, lemon juice or vinegar, a little Dijon mustard, a minced garlic clove and a little salt and pepper.
32.Use sea salt instead of the highly processed salt you find in many grocery stores.
33.Reduce salt intake. Use fresh herbs and lemon juice to boost flavor.
34.Try to stay off computers and away from anything electronic two hours before bed for a better night’s sleep.
35.Use plain yogurt instead of sour cream.
36.Switch to whole wheat, corn or quinoa pasta (there are many selections) instead of pasta that uses refined flour.
37.Don’t eat or drink any food with trans fat. Watch those nondairy creamers!
38.Add more leafy greens to your life—kale, chard, spinach, radicchio, etc. They are wonder foods! Steam the greens for a couple minutes, drain and set aside. In a pan sauté some onions, garlic and shitake mushrooms in olive oil for a few minutes. Add the greens back in, stir and serve. Yum.
39.Use less cheese in casseroles that call for cheese. Instead sprinkle grated cheese on top.
40.Begin each day with a good stretch and some deep breaths.
41.Try new ingredients. Buy a kohlrabi or something you’ve never tried before and go from there. Keep yourself inspired.
42.Don’t reward yourself or your family with food.
43.Try to eat whatever food is in season; it’s more nutritious and tastes better.
44.Don’t go hungry. Eat healthy snacks so you don’t overeat later.
45.Watch what you put on your skin. Many products are loaded with chemicals that you shouldn’t rub into your skin.
46.Bake instead of frying your meats and fish.
47.Increase omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Sources include walnuts, flax seeds, oil and cold water fish, such as salmon. Healthy fats are important to good health.
48.Increase your intake of legumes: lentils, beans and peas. They are good sources of protein, dietary fiber and blood sugar regulators. Try split pea or lentil soup for breakfast! Think outside the box.
49.Take supplements. Begin with a good multivitamin and speak with your health practitioner about others that may be needed for your optimum health.
50.Watch your portion sizes as well as your plate and utensil sizes. Some forks and spoons look like garden utensils. Try chopsticks and eat slowly.
51.Shop in the outside aisles of the grocery store. Most of the more processed foods are located in the middle aisles.
52.Play! Everyone needs to have fun!
