The Secret To Escaping The Anxieties Of Real Life, Based On Your Zodiac

Let’s face it, real life is hard. It’s not just rainbows and sunshine, but is actually hard work and stress. At times you may even feel overwhelmed and consumed by your anxieties. Here is how you should escape reality for a bit, according to your Zodiac:


(March 21-April 19)

When you feel overwhelmed and anxious, go out and visit a new place. As an Aries, you live passionately and you love living life to the fullest. After traveling, you will come back to reality more refreshed and accomplished.


(April 20-May 20)

When you need to escape your anxieties, find ways to make your space clean and calming. As a Taurus, you find great pleasure in your personal possessions. Buy a new fuzzy blanket or make a cool canopy over your bed. The best thing for you to do is focus on comfort and relaxation.


(May 21-June 20)

During times of great personal stress, it’s important that you hyper-focus on your needs. Indulge in some shopping or try a fun restaurant. To escape reality, celebrate fun times with friends and treat yourself.


(June 21-July 22)

When you are anxious, the best thing for you to escape these feelings is to indulge in delicious food and surround yourself with good people. As a Cancer, you appreciate the finer things in life and you love partaking in these luxuries.


(July 23-August 24)

Your anxious mind is best soothed by distraction. When you are stressed, you often do things to take your mind off of these burdens. Spend time reading a book, watching a movie, baking, or journaling. Let you mind relax and allow your stresses to wash away.


(August 23-September 22)

The best way for you to escape your anxieties is to compartmentalize the stresses you have and then focus your attention on something else. As a Virgo, you are very detail oriented and organized. While you might hyper focus on a problem, try to instead hyper focus on a fun evening plan or weekend getaway.


(September 23-October 22)

While you are incredibly charming and usually the life of the party, sometimes stress and anxiety can cause you to crave space. If you aren’t in the mood for a social escapism, go somewhere remote for a relaxing and introspective getaway. Maybe its a stroll in the park or a full blown hike. Whatever it may be, allow yourself to collect your thoughts and get back in touch with nature.


(October 23-November 21)

As a Scorpio, when you are stressed and anxious you instantly start to spiral. Your best form of escapism is to surround yourself with familiar people in a comfortable environment. Whether you are meeting up at home or your favorite coffee shop or restaurant, allow yourself to indulge in the things that you love.


(November 22-December 21)

When you are stressed or anxious, the first thing you want to do is take a load off. Go to a comedy show or live performance to get your fix of fun entertainment. While seeing one show won’t magically make you feel better, start getting in the habit of putting yourself first and prioritizing your happiness.


(December 22-January 19)

As a Capricorn, you are driven by success. However, sometimes the road to success comes with stresses and anxieties. The best way for you to escape these moments is to allow yourself to let loose. While you are usually too busy for a night out, give yourself permission to dance the night away this time.


(January 20-February 18)

When you are incredibly stressed, the best thing for you to do is to sit down and read a book or watch a movie. As an Aquarius your head is constantly spinning. Give yourself and your mind a well-deserved break.


(February 19-March 20)

As a Pisces, your moments of anxiety and stress can cause you to become irritated and overwhelmed. The best escapism for you during these times is to allow yourself to be inspired by others. Perhaps it’s going to an art gallery, film festival, or book club. Whatever it may be, indulge in the creative genius of others and allow yourself to get back in touch with your innovative side as well. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
