Balancing Work and Play

While work offers you a sense of purpose, taking time out plays a crucial role in refreshing your spirit. Enjoy the following tips designed to help your Sun sign create a healthy balance between work and play!

Aries
Burn off excessive energy or frustration with intense workouts. At work, break down large tasks into small objectives, then race the clock to get them done -- it's no secret you work best under pressure.

Taurus
Pleasure and pampering are your best rewards after a long day at work. Schedule monthly massages or beauty treatments; DIY methods at home will do the trick as well.

Gemini
Socializing activities such as trivia or comedy nights help you unwind after intense workdays. Isolating yourself isn't ideal for you, so head out at least once a week with friends.

Cancer
Home-cooked meals with close friends or family help you put your work pressures in proper perspective. Frequent quality time with those in your inner circle is key to your well-being.

Leo
Decadence helps you let go of work-related drama. Plan a luxury night out at least once a month -- a lavish dinner, a show, or even a short trip.

Whatever's going on at work, daily rituals help keep you sane, so make time to meditate, exercise, and eat well. For you, little things like these can make a huge difference.

Libra
After a long week at work, indulge your love for art and beauty at galleries and exhibitions over the weekend. Take along a friend or two for companionship and fun.

Scorpio
Intense experiences such as exercise or intimacy suit you best. Anything that consumes your full focus is bound to push professional pressures to the margins in your non-work hours -- where they belong.

Sagittarius
Travel and learning provide you with a change of pace and scenery, reminding you of the small role work ultimately plays in your life. Always have your next adventure lined up!

Capricorn
As the most ambitious sign in the zodiac, work often comes as its own reward to you. Still, it's important that you keep your spirit relaxed with music, swimming, or other water sports. Unstructured free time is a must for you.

Aquarius
Your experimental nature means you love technology, as well as community projects. Get involved in social, environmental, and/or political causes close to your heart in an effort to take your mind off work -- and do something good at the same time!

Pisces
Creativity and spirituality are your personal buzzwords, so make time to explore your muses -- painting, poetry, dreaming -- to help you feel fulfilled and excited about life.
