Undoubtedly, self-care is for everyone, but what de-stresses each individual is different. For a mother, it might be a relaxing spa session over a weekend; for a teen, it might be a day out with friends. Let’s take look at what each zodiac prefers. P.S: You may be one to follow self-care practices, but it is never complete without taking care of your mental health. Do not ignore your mental health.
1. Aries: Delete those emails
Reality check: You will never have time, you will have to find time. Take 30 minutes, and clear emails that have been blocking space in your inbox for a while. You can thank us later.
2. Taurus: Gardening
For you, de-stressing is synonymous with taking care of your beloved plants. You can spend hours pruning and ploughing without getting distracted.
3. Gemini: Spa
What’s better than relaxing at a spa to rejuvenate yourself? Book yourself at your favourite spa, put your phone on airplane mode when there, and surrender!
4. Cancer: Read
Rules first: No tech allowed. Curl up on your couch, get a steaming hot cuppa, and read a book you’ve been wanting to, but haven’t got down to. In fact, how about re-reading your favourite novel?
5. Leo: Meditation
You take on more than you should, dear Leo. Thus, put on some soothing music, and meditate. It’s best to clear your mind before you are ready to tackle more situations.
6. Virgo: Clean up
If there’s one chore you count as ‘time well spent’, it’s got to be cleaning the house. Get rid of all items that have ‘rested’ in your cupboards for long but have never been used. Also, it is said that clutter can lead to emotional distress, so this one’s probably an important task.
7. Libra: Moisturise and hydrate
You take no chances as far as your skincare and haircare routines are concerned. Thus, it’s no surprise that you do not miss out on those masks and scrubs. Keep it going!
8. Scorpio: Exercise
No doubt, work weeks are hectic, and what’s your idea of your workout? Well, a long brisk walk or lots of cardio to release that stress.
9. Sagittarius: Talk to friends
Your friends are your therapists, and you derive immense joy by catching up with them as and when your schedule allows. You also enjoy making travel plans with your group, and that keeps your spirits high.
10. Capricorn: Cook
Picture this: You have ended a hectic work from home day or have just returned from work. You shower and the very next thought that crosses your mind is how do you satiate those hunger pangs? You begin cooking your favourite bowl of ramen, and that tiredness is gradually melting away. Does this sound like you?
11. Aquarius: Catch up on shows
For you, de-stressing is all about catching up on all the shows that are a rage on OTT. Thus, instead of going out, you prefer staying in and watching to your heart’s content.
12. Pisces: Staycation
You despise monotony, and to break the lull, you love the idea of checking into your favourite hotel to enjoy the finer things in life.
