We all know the significant role our horoscopes play in defining our personalities, habits, likes & dislikes. So it’s really no surprise that if we dig a little deeper, they can help us establish positive rituals that not only sync up with our lifestyles, but make them a little more easy breezy too.
Us city dwellers are notorious for not clocking up enough snooze hours, staying up late scrolling, checking emails, binge watching Netflix. You know the drill. Thankfully, we’ve pin pointed how to align your bedtime routine with your star sign, so that you can drift off into your best sleep yet having found the most ideal routine for you.
ARIES : SWITCH OFF SOCIAL MEDIA
Aries are known as adrenaline junkies, and struggle to shut down the millions of tabs open in their minds. Switching off from technology at least an hour before bed allows them to wind down effectively and find some extra calm before going to bed.
TAURUS: AVOID EATING LATE
Timing is key with your evening meals— to keep on top of your sleep hygiene, stay away from mindless snacking, heavy foods & caffeine too late at night, as not only will this keep you up, but increase your chances of anxiety & nightmares.
GEMINI: GET YOUR GEAR IN ORDER
While Gemini’s are super on the ball, they can also be a little here + there as they try and tick every box possible. Before you go to bed, try a little tidying up, as your several pursuits of the day may have left your things quite literally all over the shop floor. That way you’ll wake up in the morning feeling heaps more calm + organised and ready to do it all over again.
CANCER: MEAL PREPPING FOR THE WIN
Cancers are known to be the most domestic of all the star signs, and a tried + tested method to chill out at the end of the day is a few hours in the kitchen. By meal prepping to your heart’s content, you’ll feel cool + collected knowing you have nourishment at your fingertips during your busy schedule.
LEO: FLEX YOUR JOY MUSCLES
Leos most certainly know how to have a good time, so what better way to end the day than by engaging in an activity you love, and one that brings you pure joy. Be it a sport, art, music or dancing, tapping into a sense of enjoyment can be a great way to unplug from a stressful day.
VIRGO: GET YOUR PLANNERS OUT
Ever the perfectionist, Virgos find true comfort in diarising every.little.thing. Tend to your need for organisation by whipping your diary out and updating your schedule with the week’s tasks, meetings + social plans ahead. Knowing what you have in store can bring with it a huge sense of relief + take the pressure off.
LIBRA: THAT OOTD LIFE
Libras have a thing for indulgence, beauty & pleasure, but are also known to lack organisation. So planning your outfits for the week while you simultaneously pamper your skin with a face mask is winning combination for the perfect bedtime ritual with a heavy dose of TLC.
SCORPIO: MORE MEDITATION
Scorpios are ones to really get in their heads if they allow themselves to spend too much time worrying. The best way to find some headspace and calm is mediation. Even 5 minutes could prove super helpful and allow you to zen out towards the end of the day.
SAGITTARIUS: GO BIG ON GRATITUDE
Being present isn’t something Sagittarians are so strong at, given their constant whims for new thrill seeking adventures. By starting a gratitude practice, they can learn to count their daily blessings, helping them find a little more peace and comfort amongst the chaos of their lives.
CAPRICORN: BREATHE INTO IT
Capricorns are some of the biggest workaholics around, and often can put their mental + physical health on the back burner. Incorporating some yoga & breath work before bed could do wonders for their overactive + wired minds and bodies, and help them find a greater sense of balance.
AQUARIUS: TUNE IN & TUNE OUT
Aquarians can deeply benefit from taking time out at the end of the day and losing themselves in other worlds. Given they are high creative, it’s easy for them to delve into other people’s stories + lives, so opt for a funny TV show or book to help you release your imagination + escape the stresses of the day.
PISCES: REFLECTION IS KEY
Pisces are known be the most spiritual of the star signs, and are able to foster a much deeper connection with humanity. Given they are more sensitive beings, a practice of reflection comes much easier to them, and offers a really beautiful and grounding way to close off the day.
