How to Handle Work Overload

How to Handle Work Overload
In today's unsteady economy, cutbacks on staff have left those still employed to pick up the slack -- often to the point of being heavily overworked. Here are some suggestions for how your Sun sign can best survive an intense workload.

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Unfortunately, Fire signs tend not to be very well tuned in to their body's needs. Consequently, they often assume they can forever continue on an adrenaline rush ... but the truth is that these folks need to regularly recharge their batteries, just like everyone else.
How to best cope: On weekends, be sure to get plenty of rest; also, take soothing nature walks and stick to a healthy diet. At work, teach yourself to recognize when you've reached your limit -- when you do, take a break and wait until your energy picks back up so you can dive into your tasks refreshed.

Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Often highly strung, Air signs need to take care of their minds as well as their bodies. Their normally hyperactive mental state will kick into too high a gear when they're overworked, which in turn can make it difficult for them to get enough sleep.

How to best cope: It's crucial that you meditate or find other ways to calm your brain. Furthermore, be sure to have interests outside of work through which you can express your creativity and relieve the pressures of job-induced stress.

Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
These typically sensitive signs best replenish their energy by listening to their feelings. They tend to get overwhelmed when working in an atmosphere where everyone is constantly stressed.
How to best cope: To avoid an emotional tsunami, be sure to detach from your high-pressure work environment so you may focus on creating calm, harmonious energy at home. If you have serenity in your life, you can cope with pretty much anything.

Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Just as their element implies, Earth signs are rooted in the physical realm. They know their limits, but they also have access to energy that endures through even the most stressful conditions.
How to best cope: In your off-hours, be sure to keep yourself entertained in your favorite ways. And above all, keep your personal calendar full of trips and fun activities!
