The one thing every zodiac sign could do RN for a better work/life balance

It’s the little things.

We all get caught up in our side hustles and 9-to-5s, but you’ve got to find your chill. You need to find balance and boundaries to keep your professional and personal lives healthy, ya know? Otherwise, you’ll end up like one of the kids on Succession. Not sure where to start though? Try, oh, astrology. Here’s a rundown on how every zodiac sign can implement a better work/life balance into their routine. *deep breaths*



You tend to over schedule yourself, which only works to your detriment. Don’t pile up appointments one after the other. This will help you relax and not be riddled with anxiety throughout the day.


Artistic folks, like yourself, tend to get frustrated and temperamental when creating projects. Instead of just seeing red and screaming out at others, try to decompress by popping in your earbuds and listening to music. Really. It’ll calm you down in seconds, promise.


Um, you may want to cut back on the gossip in order to avoid the ramifications of being a pot stirrer, Gem! By not repeating news (which may or may not be true) heard by the water cooler, you will avoid bringing the drama home to your S.O. Give it a try!


You absorb the energy of those around you, which is why it is important for you to do you (hit the gym, take a bath, do 20 face masks) after work to release the toxins that are clinging on to you. After that, you can live your best life after work with no worries.


Quitting being a nosey body and competitive at the office. Don’t focus on what everyone else is doing ATM. This will add more time to focus on your absolute favorite person (errr…yourself!). If you don’t care who’s doing what, then you will free your energy up to love yourself more.


Remember these words: “perfection doesn’t exist.” Read, speak, and repeat this phrase several times a day to beat your analytical and somewhat obsessive desire to do every project “perfectly.” Once you are able to quit this need, you’ll have extra time in your day to obsess over other personal matters.


You’re probably the only sign who knows a thing or two about balance. But, even you can get caught up in the chaos of not having enough time or flexibility. The answer is simple: set your own hours and timeline to do all the chores and tasks on your list.


Although it may be hard, try not to completely consume yourself with one task at a time until it’s done. Let your mind wander and unwind for a hot sec whenever you’re feeling stuck by focusing on other less demanding projects.


Don’t let FOMO stand in your way of giving your all to your job. Even if you are tempted by your squad to hit the clubs or go to a cool bar for late-night drinks, try to resist the urge. Or at least don’t stay out late past your regular bedtime.
