How To Relieve Stress, According To Your Zodiac Sign

The Best Way to De-Stress, According to Your Zodiac Sign

Stress - Life

Unfortunately, stress, worry, and anxiety are very present in everyday life nowadays. Everyone has their own techniques for dealing with stress – while some of us like to be left alone in order to calm our emotions, others prefer to be active. Your zodiac sign plays a huge role in how you handle stress, so by gaining some insight on your sign’s biggest stress and anxiety triggers, you will also find out how to relieve stress in a healthy way. Find your sign below and discover the best way to de-stress, according to astrology!

Aries

You’re extremely energetic, independent, and active person who loves challenges. Because you have so much energy, you tend to overexert yourself often, and when this happens you can get stressed, irritable, and even aggressive. However, as an Aries, you won’t relieve stress by taking some alone time to relax. Physical activity such as walking, hiking, and running are the best stress relievers for you, Aries.

Taurus

As a sign that is against transformation and likes to stick to a routine, you find it difficult to cope with stress, anxiety, and failure. You feel most at ease when you’re indulging in something that delights your senses, Taurus. So, when you’re feeling stressed out you can release tension with meditation or aromatherapy in a quiet, peaceful, and comfortable atmosphere. Cooking, gardening, or working with your hands can also help you de-stress.

Gemini

You’re known as a witty, communicative, and curious person who doesn’t like to be bored and stuck in a daily routine. Travel and exercise are some of the best ways to eliminate the stress of your daily life. Since you never stop thinking and your own mind can easily stress you out, writing down your thoughts and feelings in a journal is a great way to create order in your mind and relieve stress.

Cancer

As a Cancer, you’re very emotional, sensitive, and vulnerable. When someone hurts you, you tend to get defensive and retreat into your shell instead of expressing your feelings. When you don’t feel safe and secure, you get stressed which then leads to digestive problems. The best way to relieve stress is to practice meditation, spend time with your family, or give your motherly energy to people or animals in need. Volunteer at a nursing home or an animal shelter, help someone out, do things that will make you feel good and take your mind off your emotions.

Leo

Since you’re very generous, outgoing, communicative, and social, the best way to relieve stress is to invite a few of your favorite people over. Have some fun with your family and friends, watch a movie, go dancing, go out for a hike or a bike ride – these are all good ways to help you cope with stress.

Virgo

You’re analytical, practical, and perfectionist with an eye for the smallest detail. Your mind is working 24/7 and therefore you can easily get stressed. Luckily, you can positively use your analytical skills to reduce stress and tension. A crossword puzzle can be a great way to cope with anxiety in everyday life. Yoga, meditation, and deep breathing techniques can also ease stress and help you relax.

Libra

If you were born under the sign of Libra, you’re pretty social and you hate imbalance, so if your work/life balance gets out of control and you start feeling stressed, you will feel better being around people. Go out with friends, read a good book or listen to music – indulging in your favorite things can help you ease stress. Since you’re also a very romantic sign, watching a good romantic comedy is a good way to relieve anxiety.

Scorpio

As a very private and secretive sign, you prefer to keep your feelings hidden all the time. Even though you’re a sensitive person that feel things very deeply, you’re very mysterious and this can cause emotional imbalance and lead to anger, stress, and anxiety. If you tend to get really stressed out, retreat from the world, put on your headphones and listen to your favorite music. This is the best way to combat stress and recharge your batteries.

Sagittarius

You’re an adventurous, restless, impulsive, and energetic person that needs constant movement and doesn’t like to be alone. You can relieve stress with a nice, long run or an intense workout. Spending some quality time with your friends can also help relieve stress. Great music, great food, and great people are all you need to instantly feel better.

Capricorn

You tend to be very ambitious, disciplined, and hard-working sing that must have everything under control, so you feel stressed when you have nothing to do. Material gains are important, but you need to set aside some time for rest. If you really need to “do something” to unwind, choose a simple household chore like washing the dishes or folding the laundry. Writing to-do lists and exercise can also help you relieve stress.

Aquarius

You’re intelligent, creative, artistic, and inventive, which means that working with your hands (painting, cooking, knitting, gardening, etc.) can be a great way to relieve stress for you, Aquarius. You also enjoy intellectual stimulation, so doing something cerebral when you’re feeling stressed out is a really good idea. Mental exercise in the form of a fun board game or trivia with friends can help you de-stress and improve your well-being.

Pisces

If you were born under the sign of Pisces, you’re most likely sensitive, highly intuitive, artistic, and imaginative person. Putting your thoughts on paper and communicating with other people on a daily basis can be an amazing way to ease stress and anxiety. You find escape and relief in your creativity and imagination, so next time you’re stressed out, try meditation, writing, or daydreaming. You need a peaceful and quiet atmosphere in order to relax completely, so you’ll also benefit from meditation and spending time in or around water.
