Yes, I know, we all get stressed sometimes, that’s normal. Or not? Maybe we’ve been convinced that stress is a normal condition and we’ve simply taken it lightly without thinking about it.
No matter how you feel about stress and pressure, we have to find a way to deal with it. Your zodiac sign can help you with this because there are different anti-stress remedies and you can find one that best suits your zodiac sign.
Not only will you be in a good mood again quickly, but you will also be efficient because you won’t waste time looking for the right remedy. Here are the best ways to combat stress.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Going out
It’s not good for you to be alone when you’re stressed or in a bad mood. Then you can become quite gloomy and depressed because there is no one who can tell you that your thoughts are going in the wrong direction.
It would be much better if you surround yourself with people who distract your thoughts. So going out doesn’t have to mean going to a club and getting drunk (although that can be a way to relax). It can also mean going out for dinner or drinks with friends or colleagues, going to the cinema, or just taking a walk. All of these can help reduce your stress.
You are a person who wants to do and solve everything immediately, but that doesn’t always go smoothly. There are situations in which you should calm down first. Only afterward (or better yet, tomorrow) can you think clearly and solve the problem that is causing you stress.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Find time for yourself
Aloneness is important for everyone, more important than you think, but Taureans need it especially when they’re feeling stressed or in a bad mood. Taurus people like their time when they can be alone and do whatever they want. They always know what they want to do and there is no risk of them getting bored at all.
It’s best to do what Taurus do best: treat yourself and let yourself be pampered! This can be as simple as a cup of tea and your favorite TV show, or something more relaxing like a bubble bath with mood music and candles, or even a shopping trip around town.
The most important thing is that you are alone with your thoughts and can think in peace. Maybe you can’t think of the problem straight away and can’t find a solution. But if you relax, the solution will come naturally.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): New experiences and new knowledge
Geminis are very curious and extremely easily distracted. They should use these in combination and deal with stress in this way: learn something new or travel. I know you can’t always travel when you’re under pressure and stress, but there are always alternatives.
For Gemini, it would be enough to plan a trip: choose websites and airline tickets, find new travel destinations, and compare prices. If you have enough time and money, you can also go on a trip or visit a place in the city that you have never been to before. That’s probably enough to distract you and calm you down a bit.
When you feel bad, do what you like first to improve your mood. Then, when you feel good again, you can think efficiently about the problem you’re worried about. Or even better. Don’t even think about it! Do what makes you happy and the solution will come to you when you least expect it.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Time with family
Cancers are loving and caring creatures who value their family and time with them most. This is exactly your remedy for stress. It doesn’t have to be anything special, like organizing an event or a family reunion. It can be as simple as cooking with the little ones playing a board game with the older ones, chatting with the old ones or taking care of the little ones.
Time with family restores your energy and good mood and reminds you of what is most important. Namely, that everyone is healthy. Of course, it may happen that your family doesn’t live nearby or even in the same country. Nowadays this is no longer a big problem because there are enough technical tools that make communication easier.
You can make a video call with your family or with a member who understands you best and share all your worries. Even if it feels like a pity party, it will do you good to let it all out. Afterwards you will definitely feel better and solve your problem.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Get some fresh air
Leos are naturally great optimists and always want to motivate others. But what happens when Leos feel bad? They don’t even know what to do. But they don’t show it. That’s why they need a little time to be alone.
But it wouldn’t be good for you to stay home alone when you’re stressed. It’s much better to go outside and enjoy the fresh air. This clears your thoughts and improves your mood. Since Leos are active people, it’s not a bad idea for you to exercise when you’re feeling stressed. This way you can release the accumulated stress and let the good energy in.
For example, if you exercise regularly anyway and are reading this, you might think that this isn’t a good fit for you. But if that’s a workout in the gym or somewhere indoors, you should do something else when you’re stressed. Good ideas include swimming, running, or playing basketball on an outdoor playground.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Contemplation of art
Virgos experience a lot of stress simply because they are perfectionists. This isn’t easy to change or prevent, but if it does happen, you should know how to deal with it. These earth signs are sometimes stubborn when it comes to stress relief. They think it will go away on its own, but that’s usually not the case. Then they feel even more stressed because the stress is still there.
But what you can do is this: engage in art. Be it making art, looking at art, or talking about art. This will definitely help you feel better. On the one hand, because then you don’t think so much anymore. On the other hand, it makes it easier for you to get involved. Of course, you can’t (always) make art or visit a museum, but there are plenty of alternatives.
You can search for paintings or photos on the Internet, look at them, or read about them. Reading and researching history wouldn’t be a bad idea either. These things will keep your brain busy enough, even better than a conversation or a book. Immerse yourself in the art, contemplate it enjoy it to the fullest, and watch your stress disappear.
Libra (September 23-October 22): Read a good book
Libras are intelligent and thirsty for knowledge. You like looking at people and their behavior and analyzing things. When they have a problem, they have to work through it in detail to find a solution. This may be correct and productive in some cases, but some problems require a cool head.
In such situations, you should move as far away from the problem as possible and focus your thoughts on another topic. You can allow yourself to be distracted in conversations with others, but not completely and not for long enough. That’s why it’s better to pick up a good book. Why do I say “good book”? All books are good in their own way. But for you, it has to be something that is so interesting that you will spend a long time with it.
Light topics and romantic comedies are not a good choice in this situation. It would be much better to choose classics or something more serious, such as psychology, crime novels or something professional. This should help you reduce your stress and relax. You can then talk to a friend about the solution to your problem.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Embrace this difficult phase
Scorpios are known for being mysterious and somewhat dark. They are people who have deep feelings but don’t show them often (enough). Therefore, people around them may not even notice when Scorpios have difficulties in life. That’s why it’s always a good idea to ask how they’re doing as a precaution and just in case.
When they are under pressure or stress, they usually sleep through it and try not to think about it much and for a long time. They also don’t want to worry others and rarely complain. But what would be a better and more productive idea? You should first accept this phase. You don’t feel good and that’s a good thing. This is completely normal, but it all starts with acceptance. Then comes the search for the cause.
Only when this phase is complete can you start thinking about possible solutions? In your case there are always several options and possible scenarios anyway, that’s already known. Once all of this is done, it’s time to relax and get your thoughts back in order. You can do this very well with a series or a book.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Throw a party
Sagittarius are optimistic and active because they usually think positively and don’t let themselves get down easily. However, when something like this happens and they are under pressure and stress, they should try to keep their good mood at all costs. Since they love going out and hanging out with friends, this isn’t a bad idea to relieve stress.
But going out alone doesn’t help. You can go out on the town or dance in a club, but you can’t be sure that the stress will go away. That’s why it’s better to organize a party. This way you know who will be coming, what will be eaten or drunk, what music will be played and so on. All of these things are of great importance in keeping your spirits as high as possible. Being a host can only benefit you.
When your party is over, you will be busy tidying up and cleaning for a long time. You won’t have time to think. You won’t think about your problem until later, but by then enough time will have passed so that you can keep a cool head and make your decisions calmly.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Plan ahead
Strict and organized Capricorns always want to have everything under control, and that’s exactly what causes them the most stress. If they haven’t estimated or calculated something correctly, it causes them great concern. At first they are angry at themselves for making a mistake. Then they see who is partly to blame. None of this is productive or effective against stress.
Therefore, you should try another anti-stress remedy. It would be good to plan something else or even plan ahead. Make a lot of plans and organize a lot. Make lists and check things off, one by one. This will bring you back calm and serenity. This way you will find your lost sense of control and try to keep it this time.
You shouldn’t talk much about your problem or something that’s bothering you. It’s okay to tell someone about it because that way you share your worries and they become smaller. The people in your life have a right to know what is happening to you. But be careful. If you talk about it for too long, complain or whine, it will only make the whole situation worse. Sharing a few sentences is fine, but then – back to planning!
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Do something spontaneous
Aquarians are creative and strange creatures who are not often seen sad or stressed. Of course, this is not because they have no worries in life, but because they cleverly hide them. Only when they are alone, usually in bed on Sundays, do they think about what is not going well in their life. Then they may feel stressed.
The same thing happens when they don’t get enough sleep, then they can get angry very easily. But that’s not what it is all about here. The question is how to deal with it. So if you feel stressed or just bad, you should do something spontaneously. This isn’t that difficult for you, because you like to be spontaneous and unpredictable anyway. But what you can do in this case doesn’t necessarily have to be sensational. For example, it’s enough to call your friend whom you haven’t seen for a long time and suggest that you go somewhere.
You can also choose something that you haven’t done for a long time or at all, but it would always be better to have a friend with you to make the whole thing a little more cheerful. It can also be a good idea to create a wish list and check things off one by one. You can play this game whenever you feel stressed. This will easily distract your thoughts and you will feel much better afterwards.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Find your peace again
The friendly and compassionate Pisces are known for wanting to take all of the world’s problems into their own hands and solve them. They are always ready to help and can understand everyone. This is a wonderful quality, but for yourself, it can cause just as much worry. It could be that they are carrying too many negative emotions and that they are under stress themselves.
You may think that you don’t have time to take care of yourself, but you absolutely have to. This is not something others can do for you. Nobody can do it and nobody will do it. That’s why you should find time in your day in which you can calm down and concentrate. It would be best to meditate, visualize or do yoga. These activities will help you clear your mind and relax in 10-15 minutes.
Once you feel good and balanced again, you can continue with your humanitarian work. It is quite dangerous to believe that you can always endure and achieve anything without resting or relaxing. You have to listen to your body and know when enough is enough. Keep this in mind the next time you decide to work without a break or skip a meal!
As Andrew Bernstein said:
The truth is that stress doesn’t come from your boss, your children, your spouse, traffic jams, health problems, or other circumstances. It comes from your thoughts about your circumstances.
Unfortunately, our thoughts cause the most stress, and that’s where we should start if we want to reduce our stress.
This can be both good and challenging. But if we know that it only depends on us and that the responsibility is in our hands, we should be happy.
We can change all of this today if we want to. Our new beginning is determined by ourselves.
