It can happen that we can’t sleep, be it because of the heat, the thunderstorm, too many thoughts or accumulated stress, but what we do then depends on the person.
Some people can go back to sleep while others have to get up to do something useful. But most people stay in bed and make themselves comfortable in their own special way.
These activities can also have to do with your zodiac sign. Let’s see together what each zodiac sign does when they can’t sleep.
Aries: Stay in bed
Aries will try to sleep as hard as they can. But if that doesn’t work, they’ll start thinking about ways to fall asleep.
In any case, you won’t get out of bed or do anything except try to get to sleep. Of course, it will occur to you to count sheep, but you know this doesn’t help.
Maybe a better option would be to imagine lots of unicorns running around and just focus on them.
Taurus: Fake sleep
Taurus people, as structured earth signs, know that you should just sleep in the evening. But when they can’t sleep, they pretend to sleep.
It’s like a kind of acting for them. They pretend to be asleep, and it often happens that this is how they trick their brain into actually falling asleep.
However, this method does not always help. In such cases, it would be best to read something or do something unrelated to the cell phone. Its light can only make the situation worse and keep us awake longer.
Gemini: Talking or chatting
Many twins have difficulty falling asleep as children because they think too much and these thoughts keep them awake. Later they develop methods where they switch themselves off or imagine something and just concentrate on it.
What happens if none of this works? When Geminis are too nervous or excited to sleep, they like to talk to someone. If there is no person next to them to wake up, they will find a victim on social networks and chat with her.
Talking or chatting will calm them down because this way they turn off their thoughts and somehow forget for a short time. So, if a Gemini calls you in the evening or wants to chat, it is possible that he will not be able to sleep.
Cancer: Take a warm bath
As a water sign, Cancer likes any form of water, so it’s no wonder they often treat themselves to a warm bubble bath or shower when they can’t sleep.
This is actually a good idea because warm water has a calming effect on both our body and our soul. This way you can switch off unnecessary thoughts and relax better.
But it also happens that you don’t feel like getting out of bed if you can’t sleep. In such situations, it also helps to listen to soft music or watch a movie. After just 20 minutes you will be sound asleep.
Leo: Make up a story
These fire signs can usually sleep very well and do not suffer from sleep deprivation. If they do, they’re in trouble. Leos usually go straight to social media to talk or chat with someone.
But what sets them apart from the twins is that they have a whole story about why they can’t sleep, what they’ve tried, and what tips they can give.
You’ll probably see on his profile the next day that he posted about it too. With Leos nothing goes unnoticed, they have to make a story (if not a drama) out of everything.
Virgo: Social Networks or Reading?
Virgos work a lot and are usually very tired in the evening. Unfortunately, it often happens that that’s exactly why they can’t sleep – they’re too tired.
Thinking too much is the worst thing you could do in these moments. And yet they often do. Just as often as playing games or scrolling on Instagram or TikTok. A better idea would be to read something, preferably a book or something that is printed.
After just a few pages you will feel sleep overtaking you and you will fall asleep like a baby. My advice is – don’t put a cell phone under your pillow, put a book there instead, virgins!
Scales: Count, count…
Libras often suffer from sleep disorders and over time they find out what is good for them and what is not. What usually bothers them the most before going to bed is – counting.
But not in the sense that they count sheep like all people usually do, no! They count how much they will sleep, when they go to sleep, or even fall asleep. You think something like this:
If I go to sleep at 11 p.m., I fall asleep at 11:30 p.m., then I have 6 hours until I wake up.
And so on. It’s a process that exhausts them more than they think. If Libras stopped doing this, they would certainly fall asleep earlier and have better quality sleep.
It’s no surprise that these passionate zodiac signs resort to this kind of pleasure when they can’t sleep. Sometimes they just watch a porn movie, sometimes they wake up their partner to have sex, and in most cases, they just finish it themselves.
Interestingly, this is very effective against insomnia. Afterwards, you fall asleep quite quickly and the quality of your sleep is better.
There is only one problem with this method, namely when you wake up your partner to have sex: you may be tired afterward and fall asleep quickly, while your partner is only now hyper and can’t sleep at all.
Sagittarius: take a walk
Since Sagittarius is an active sign, it often happens that when he goes to bed he cannot fall asleep immediately. This can happen because their brain and heart are still active when they go to bed.
If it happens that you cannot fall asleep, you should first calm down your breathing, then the heart rhythm will also calm down and you will be able to relax more quickly. Of course, that also means falling asleep faster.
If all that doesn’t work, it’s not a bad idea to take a walk to clear your thoughts and relax. Sagittarians could take a preventive walk before going to bed, it will be good for them.
Capricorn: Working, what else?
We know that Capricorns are a hard-working sign and love their work. It often happens that they cannot sleep well or at all because of too many thoughts.
In such cases, they immediately think about what they can do to use the time effectively. In their opinion, if they can’t sleep, they shouldn’t waste time trying to fall asleep. Instead, they will get up and work. This doesn’t have to have anything to do with work, although cleaning is also an option.
It might be better to watch something to fall asleep faster because it only takes 20 minutes and you won’t wake up tomorrow dead tired because you only slept for 4 hours.
Aquarians are air signs and have too much creativity and too many thoughts that have to somehow get out. It’s not very often that they can’t sleep at all because they work a lot and are constantly tired and sleepy.
That’s why they don’t know what to do when something like this happens. Most of the time they resort to overthinking, the kind of overthinking that has to do with themselves. They question themselves and their actions, something they don’t normally do in everyday life.
This self-reflection can get a little dark and depressing. Therefore, it would be better for her to just get up and do something useful or even go for a walk instead of torturing herself with her unproductive thoughts.
Pisces: white noise
Fish like to sleep and they really need it. Pisces can turn anything that has to do with going to sleep into a ritual. And that can be very useful and have a good effect on your sleep quality.
If you still can’t sleep, it must be due to stress. Only large amounts of stress can keep fish from sleeping. In such situations, they usually watch TV or pick up a book.
But it’s best to play white noise. Whether it’s sea waves, wind or rain, these sounds help them fall asleep faster. You just have to find out which sound suits you best.
