If You're An Aries, Do This Self-Care Routine

It's no wonder that the first sign of the zodiac — Aries — "loves to be number one," according to Allure. If you're born between March 21 and April 19, your sun sign is in Aries, and you thrive as a bold and confident leader. As a leader, you love winning. In fact, Co-Star Astrology states that you're "highly competitive" and can often fall into the mindset that you think "everything is a game [you] can win." 

As motivated as you are to come out on top, you also have to be mindful that you don't overdo it. Since you are so driven, you can be a bit hard on yourself when things don't go your way. Cosmopolitan even says that you may fall into "a lot of internalized stress and pressure," which they also claim is "self-inflicted." Stress can have a lot of negative effects on your health, such as headaches, anxiety, and even an irregular eating schedule (via Mayo Clinic). To help combat the pressure you may be feeling, you need to establish a good self-care routine. 

Aries benefits from a good morning routine

Just like you can turn to your zodiac sign for relationship advice or follow your horoscope on a day-to-day basis, you can also look to your astrological sign when figuring out which self-care routine works best for you. Since you're an Aries, California Psychics suggests that you need a good morning routine that includes setting up a daily to-do list. Being able to cross off your accomplishments throughout the day will soothe your mind. Then, when you have everything crossed off, you'll feel satisfied that you were able to achieve so much in one day, even if it is just mini projects like doing the dishes or making your bed. 

Vogue also suggests that a determined person like you needs a good pep talk. One way to get that pep talk is with daily affirmations. You can even download a daily affirmation app for your phone, so you get a positive notification each day that encourages you. Girlboss also recommends something else to get you up and going each day is a little activity. Since you might be focusing on a good morning routine, maybe that includes an early morning jog.
