Everyone deals with stress differently. Some people feel it for an hour or two before they find a solution while others simply cannot handle anything that is even close to stress.
These types of people are usually not great at multitasking (too many things going on at once) or making decisions (too much pressure to make everyone happy).
But even if you’re one of these people, I guarantee that stress makes you act completely different from someone else who deals with the same kind of tension.
You might deal with anxiety by just powering through it until you don’t have to think about it anymore, while someone else might get so overwhelmed just thinking about what’s making them stressed.
One of the biggest things I’ve learned as I’ve dealt with stress is to not let it consume you.
There will always be stress in your life, but if you let it overwhelm you before you even conquer what’s been wigging you out so much, you’ll constantly feel burned out.

Deep breathing exercises help A LOT, but what helps even more is planning our exactly how you’ll deal with the stressor.
Having a plan of action and being able to play it out in your mind can help you figure out exactly what you need to do to succeed.
Of course, this is often easier said than done when it comes to these five zodiac signs. They are the signs most likely to get stressed out because, quite frankly, they are always worried about something.
Some zodiac signs handle stress very badly becauase they aren’t usually the type of people who can just go with the flow because they like having some bit of control in life.
But while these astrological signs are easily stressed out, it is important for them to take some time for themselves; taking care of yourself will make stress seem that much easier to deal with.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini gets stressed out about a lot of things, but what stresses her out the MOST is making decisions of any kind.
For whatever reason, she clams up whenever she has to be in charge. Call it fear that she won’t be good enough in a position of power or blame it on the fact that she can barely choose what to wear in the morning, but Gemini is no stranger to stress.
One thing that Gemini doesn’t do when she’s faced with it (but really should) is to step back from the whole thing and breathe.
She convinces herself that if she doesn’t make a decision now, she never will, but things are never that serious.
Gemini needs to trust that she is stronger than the stress she feels all the time.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer’s stress comes from worrying about other people on a daily basis.
Because she is such an intuitive person, she can’t help but mirror the same emotions that her friends and family feel, especially when it concerns something that means a lot to them.
Cancer tries to worry more about herself and her own problems, but she can sometimes feel guilty about it.
Even though worrying brings her a lot of stress, she likes knowing that she is an integral part of her loved ones’ lives.
It is important for Cancer to tell herself every so often that other people’s lives are out of her hands; it might help her relax and distress knowing she isn’t responsible.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Virgo’s stresses come from deep within her. She is always on the go, mentally, physically, and emotionally, that it isn’t rare for everything to catch up to her all at once.
Virgo always tries to be the best friend, the strong partner, and the family member that is always there, but she doesn’t often make time for herself.
Virgo needs to get into the practice of self-care, letting others know that while she still cares, she can’t always be around for them.
There is nothing wrong with putting yourself first, which Virgo definitely needs to understand. Stress will only break her down into more tiny pieces, which only makes stressful situations worse for her.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Aquarius tries not to let stress get to her, but no matter how hard she tries, it always seems to find her anyway. Her stressors come from the outside world.
Whether she’s having an existential crisis over the Universe or she’s just thinking too hard about her future, Aquarius deals with stress that not a lot of other signs would even think of.
Aquarius can sometimes be a pro at making sure stress doesn’t swallow her whole, but if it’s all she can think about, not even the person closest to her can get her out of her own head.
She needs to remind herself that she is in control of her life no matter what and that she gets to make the decisions.
As long as Aquarius knows that, everything will be fine.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Pisces is another intuitive sign, like Cancer, but when she gets stress it isn’t so much that she worries about other people, but rather that she isn’t being the best person she can be.
She takes pride in being an amazing friend and partner, but she puts way too much pressure on herself.
If Pisces needs to remember anything, it is that she is always enough. There is no reason for her to tell herself that she isn’t worth it or that she doesn’t try hard enough at anything.
Pisces desperately wants people to know that she is always there for them and when she feels like anything has changed, she lets the stress of over-thinking get the better of her.
