Like Pisces, the feet are said to represent the whole, the sole being the map of the entire body, with different parts aligning with distinct organs. This is the basis for reflexology, the style of massage that focuses on different reflex points in the foot, not only to relax them but to help inspire the flow of energy in the areas of the body with which they accord. Another way of treating your feet is to get a pedicure. Not only does your feet looking good make you feel good but with the filing, cuticle grooming, heel sloughing and massage that a pedicure includes, it's a great way to keep your tootsies in tip-top shape.

It's a great time to bolster sleep hygiene so that we can benefit from getting a full night's rest, something that many people have challenges with, and yet something so instrumental to our well-being. Making the room as dark as possible may help, as may removing LCD alarm clocks and computers from your sleep sanctuary. Not being on an electronic device for an hour or two before sleep may help to calm the mind and nervous system.
