If You're A Gemini, This Is How To Boost Your Mood

Here at The List, we're dedicated to self-care, and we're avid believers in the zodiac. When you combine the two, you can find personalized self-care acts that work the best for you. This takes the guessing game out of finding your perfect relaxation methods and helps create the best you. Adding even one thing to your daily routine can change your mood and overall well-being. For example, a Pisces may need habit like getting their nails done, while a Taurus may need another like going for a walk. A Gemini will need an entirely different habit.

We've already created our guide to Gemini self-care, but this time, we want to discuss the one thing that could, if implemented into your daily routine, boost a Gemini's outlook on life. Life is hard, and if one habit can do so much heavy lifting, it's worth doing. In their day-to-day self-care, Geminis should regularly go for meditative walks according to StyleCaster, and then there's Vogue's diagnosis that Geminis need to escape into words to relieve their mental tension. They can escape into poetry books, political thrillers, or romance novels, according to Vogue, but all that matters is that a book is carrying them away.

While Geminis should definitely do both of these activities, one cognizant effort may be more important than both of them.

One cognizant act can change a Gemini's life

Once you've established your self-care routine as a Gemini, there is still one important aspect of daily life you need to consider. For a Gemini, this is how you interact with other people. Geminis by nature are complex humans. Represented by a pair of twins, Geminis feel a lot of feelings, and while they can be clever at how they handle them, they can also be reactionary (via The Times of India). Their interactions with others can become great bearers of stress, and therefore, when attempting to optimize your feelings during the day, there's only one thing you can do.

According to Flare, your mantra as a Gemini should be "let it go." You have to carefully evaluate all of your interactions to ensure you're only giving your energy to worthwhile conversations and people. "You have a lot to offer but don't waste your words — or your energy — being everyone else's therapist or mediator. Especially if you find yourself getting pulled into online conversations and Twitter debates that don't amount to anything," Flare explained.

They further recommended even turning off your phone and computer and instead turning to your own reflective practices. You need to focus on yourself, especially because you're so multi-dimensional as a Gemini. If you can limit your reactions to others, your mental clarity will become stronger than ever, allowing you to finally prosper as the person you know deep down that you are.
