The Best Stress Relief Technique For Each Zodiac Sign



(March 21 – April 19)

You tend to work a lot, party a lot, socialize a lot and do everything with great dedication and passion. The downside – your sleep schedule greatly suffers and you are highly prone to burnout.

When you feel your nerves become stretched, get a couple days off or take a long weekend to detach, relax in the middle of nature or join a hammam spa for skin detox.


(April 20 – May 20)

Workaholics anonymous, anyone? You’re the master of your domain, Taurus, and you’re proficient in everything you do but you also tend to take things personal and get easily frustrated by failure.

The best stress relief for you is deep soul guided meditation, be it in the comfort of your own apartment or in a Vippassana camp.


(May 21 – June 20)

Stress tends to hit hard on sedentary Geminis, because having no one to talk to about their struggles makes them isolated, scared and overwhelmed.

To lessen up the pressure, you can swim, hike or play tennis with a friend you can entrust with your problems.


(June 21 – July 22)

You stress greatly when insecurities build up in your life, so you need to find a way to balance and center yourself.

Meditation and long walks in nature are great resources to make things fall into place for you.


(July 23 – August 22)

You need to be in control always and when that fails, you grow anxious, terrified and reach the verge of a nervous breakdown. Aside from working with a therapist to accept you cannot control external influences in your life, you can burn some steam at a judo or boxing class. This will help relief you tension and put you to deep, well deserved sleep.


(August 23 – September 22)

Alike Gemini, you tend to start doubting yourself in solitude and often become too critical of your failures. What works best for you is spending a relaxed quality time with close friends and family and engaging in pleasant activities with others, such as chess, basketball or bowling.


(September 23 – October 22)

Like fellow Aquarius, you accumulate great amounts of stress and inevitably break down. To regain balance, practise soul searching while keeping a gratitude diary, and look into acupuncture to reallign your chakras.


(October 23 – November 21)

You’re highly sensitive and take a lot to your heart, but almost never release those toxic emotions. Instead of bottling up, turn to trustworthy people in your life who can offer you comfort and empathy, and don’t shy away from speaking to them what holds your mind occupied.


(November 22 – December 21)

You’re highly resistant to stress, but being the Zodiac empath makes you draw in all the toxic energies and low vibrations from others. Take time to recharge by writing your thoughts, keeping a dream diary or painting – creative activities have great power to tune you in to yourself again.


(December 22 – January 19)

If you’ve accumulated great levels of stress, the universal cure for your nerves is a long day at the spa, in a sauna or a relaxing retreat where you can meditate and regain energy. Get plenty of hydration and eat clean for a couple days.


(January 20 – February 18)

You’re one of the most easily stressed zodiac signs, Water Bearer. Your never ending train of thought requires thorough mental hygiene, while your perfectionist spirit can be tuned down by spending time with yourself. You recharge your batteries getting plenty alone time, so that you can soon get back to your vibrant social nature.


(February 19 – March 20)

When you need to reconnect with yourself, turn to art, reading or music – the best places where you can find solace for your aching body and mind. Spend time alone if you must, and get plenty of sleep.
