The Top 10 Ways Virgo Can Beat the Blues
When a Virgo is in a bad mood, only his or her closest friends might notice. Virgos pride themselves on seeming unflappable under pressure, and they'll often try to push their bad mood into a corner (hence, those nervous stomachs) Here are ten ways for Virgo to beat those blues:
- Help out. When a Virgo feels bad, refocusing on others can be helpful. This sign loves to volunteer, and even informally helping a friend can make them feel better.
- Watch a sad movie. For a total escape, Virgos enjoy watching movies they've seen a billion times before especially the sad ones.
- Hang out in a cafÃ©. Virgo falls in love with certain spaces, and a favorite coffee shop or cafÃ© can feel like a home-away-from-home oasis.
- Read a favorite book. Virgos have certain books (hard copies only, please!) that they can turn to again and again.
- Read a poem. Virgo has a love of language, and reading a poem can help this sign get lost in its rhythm and beauty.
- Draw or paint. While Virgos adore art, they may second-guess their own talent. By giving themselves permission to create visual art, without worrying about whether it looks right or wrong, they'll find healing as creativity flows through them.
- Take a walk. This earth sign needs their feet on the ground sometimes. Getting outside and going on a hike can keep things in perspective.
- Have an ice cream. Virgos love sweet treats, and while they don't â€œeat their feelings,â€ sometimes an ice cream works better than a cry session could.
- Take in a comedy show. Virgo loves to laugh, and seeing improv or standup can make things better, fast.
- Organize their closet. When a Virgo's physical space is clean, he or she feels more in control of everything else. Organizing a closet, drawer, or handbag can make them feel much better.
