HOW TO OPTIMIZE YOUR NIGHT ROUTINE ACCORDING TO YOUR ZODIAC SIGN
When it comes to relaxation and evening mindfulness, each zodiac sign has a special way to harness their strengths and bring more focus and energy into their sleep and preparation for the coming day. Here is a list of the best ways to optimize your evening routine according to your zodiac sign.
ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19): UNPLUG FROM SOCIAL MEDIA
As one of the most active and energized zodiac signs, Aries are prone to craving adrenaline and not knowing how to shut their minds off. The best way to calm down and get great sleep is by unplugging from social media at least an hour prior to bed. Staring into a light in the dark keeps your brain awake, so prioritize your own mental health rather than staring at your Instagram.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20): BE MINDFUL OF WHAT YOU EAT AND DRINK
Taurus are known for their love of food, but eating right before bed can actually not be the best thing to do for you. Caffeine is also not good to have before sleeping because it’ll keep you alert and potentially more prone to nightmares and night anxiety. Be aware of what you’re putting in your body!
GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20): TAME THE CHAOS
Gemini can be like a hurricane and sometimes aren’t the most organized zodiac sign. In order to clear the chaos, a great way to do this is straighten up before bed so that when you wake up in the morning, you already know where everything is. This will also help you wake up in a clean and clear home before the crazy workday begins.
CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22): MEAL PREP
Cancer love food a great deal and they often are great cooks, as well! As the most domestic of the zodiac signs, a great way to calm down before bed is to meal prep for the coming day. Making sure you have snacks, a well-balanced lunch ready, and perhaps even dinner for the family may bring more harmony to your already busy schedule.
LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22): DO WHAT YOU LOVE
As a zodiac sign that is expressive, Leo must always be having a bit of fun! One of the best ways to put a cherry on top of your day is to allot some time just for you doing something that you love. Whether it’s art, a hobby, or exercise, this will make sure you unplug from the stress.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22): PLAN THE NEXT DAY
As the most detail-oriented zodiac sign, Virgo are the greatest organizers. In order to get ahead in the coming day, take some notes in your planner or phone about how you want to plot out your day. This can include work, but also exercise, family time, or a date.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22): SET THINGS ASIDE FOR TOMORROW
Libra are known for their love of beauty and pleasure, but they aren’t actually the most organized of zodiac signs. They can be prone to indulgence and disorganization, so in order to bring some peace to their lives they should set aside the clothes and objects needed for the coming day. If they add in a facial mask while they’re getting ready, they can still enjoy some much-needed TLC.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21): ELIMINATE NEGATIVITY
As a zodiac sign ruled by two mighty and powerful planets (Mars and Pluto), Scorpio can at times fester in their own emotions. However, toxicity, negativity, and frustration do not bring happiness, so one way to actually improve their health is to eliminate negativity from their lives. Meditate on what you can actually control in your life but release what is not serving you.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21): GRATITUDE
Sagittarius are prone to craving excitement, stimulation, and adrenaline, but they often forget to sit down and be grateful for the blessings that are in their lives. A great way to bring more peace and more abundance into your life is by being aware of the little blessings and giving thanks for them.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19): STRETCHING & YOGA
Capricorn are one of the hardest working zodiac signs and this is what leads them to be so successful so often. However, rest and relaxation are crucial when you’re building an empire (or family), so spending some time doing breath work, stretching, and yoga will improve their mental and physical health.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18): RELEASE YOUR IMAGINATION
As an imaginative and highly intellectual zodiac sign, Aquarius are great at losing themselves in worlds beyond our own. To unplug from the stress or drama of day-to-day life, spend some time releasing your imagination – whether that be by watching a series or reading a book.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20): REFLECT & PRAY
As the most spiritual zodiac sign, Pisces have a great connection with humanity and the worlds beyond. A beautiful way to bring resolution to your day is through reflection and prayer. Spend 15 or 30 minutes connecting to your inner self and your conscience will surely bring you important messages.
