When your energy is depleted and you’re fully zeroed out, it can be hard to imagine how it even feels to be at peak strength. Everyone has their own preferred tactics for recharging their batteries, and we’ve laid out a few quintessential ones according to your zodiac sign.
How to Recharge, According to Your Zodiac Sign
Aries (mar 21 - Apr 19): Working Out
As a highly physical sign, endorphins work especially well on you, Aries. A bout of exercise is sure to lift your mood, because pumping up is what pumps you up!
Taurus (apr 20 - May 20): Window-shop For Things You Can’t Afford
Taureans draw inspiration from aesthetic sources, so perusing for luxury fashion or jewelry, even if you can’t afford to buy it, brings a little color to your cheeks. Bonus fact: Audrey Hepburn, famously depicted outside of Tiffany’s in full evening regalia, was a Taurus!
Gemini (may 21 - Jun 20): Laughing Until You Cry With Your Favorite Person
The thrill of being doubled over with laughter is highly energizing and contagious, so grab your funniest friend or family member and wake each other up with your mutual wit.
Cancer (jun 21 - July 22): Eat Or Drink Something With Cbd Oil
Food is usually welcome to you, Cancer, because you tend to nurture others before yourself. Have an enhanced treat with a little CBD oil to soothe any anxieties and fortify your mood as well as your belly.
Leo (jul 23 - Aug 22): Dance Like Everyone’s Watching
Whether or not there’s a crowd, it’s an absolute certainty that you know how to put on a show. Crank up the volume on your favorite song and live your rock star fantasy, lions.
Virgo (aug 23 - Sept 22): Get A Massage
Because you do a lot of caretaking, you often end up with a lot of tension in your body. Release your posture of duty, Virgo, and get a massage. You can be at everyone’s service after you’ve served yourself.
Libra (sept 23 - Oct 21): Visit A Museum
Like Taureans, you’re an aesthetic sign, but you tend to be more energized by beautiful ideas than just things. So when you’re low energy, visit a museum and amuse yourself by interpreting every piece.
Scorpio (oct 22 - Nov 21): Check Up On Your Nemesis
Jealousy isn’t always a bad thing, Scorpio. The experience of a rivalry can help you identify your goals and motivate you to pursue them. The best revenge, after all, is living well.
Sagittarius (nov 22 - Dec 21): Go For A Walk And Talk
Not only do you love good conversation, Sagittarius, but you love a little cardio while you gab. Taking an extended walk and talk with a friend will put some pep in your step and your brain.
Capricorn (dec 22 - Jan 19): Confide In Someone
Capricorns don’t lower their guards for just anyone. The joy of confiding in someone worthy of your trust is one to indulge when you need a pick-me-up.
Aquarius (jan 20 - Feb 18): Watch Something Funny
You’ve got a unique sense of humor, Aquarius, so get yourself onto a higher vibration by watching whatever makes you reliably crack up. Then send it to anyone you think might get it.
Pisces (feb 19 - Mar 20): Draw A Tarot Card
You’re especially attuned to the mysteries of the universe, Pisces, so draw a tarot card when you’re feeling wiped out. Not only will it revive you; it’ll be accurate, too.
