Things are tough all over, dear friends. And sometimes the most important thing you can do for yourself is spend the whole weekend in bed. Here’s how to enjoy 48 hours in your PJs.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Zoom with your friends. If you’ve been feeling starved for company and miss hanging out with your friends, throw a virtual sleepover. Encourage everyone to get in their comfiest pajamas, load up on snack, and hang out together in bed. Play classic sleepover games like truth or dare, watch a scary movie together… the possibilities are endless and very, very silly.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Watch a classic sitcom this weekend for a comforting dose of nostalgia. A lot of these shows are being rebooted or revived, so by looking back at your favorites, you’ll actually be staying current in pop culture. Enjoy dated references, terrible fashion, and laugh tracks galore as you revisit the world as it was 20 or 30 years ago.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Watch YouTube videos all weekend, Gemini! Not that this is different from your usual plans, even before the pandemic. You’ve got a shorter attention span than most and an endless appetite for new content. That makes you the ideal YouTube viewer. Just keep following the algorithm to new–and weird–channels.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Learn how to knit or crochet this weekend, Cancer. If you’re already accomplished at needlecraft, then pick up a new project and let everyone know that you’re not to be disturbed. Make “craft time” into “me time,” plus get a scarf or hat at the end of it. It’s a winning plan for the chronically stressed out Cancer.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Have a spa day in bed, Leo. Give yourself a mani and pedi, try a new makeup tutorial, and moisturize every inch of your skin. If you’ve got someone at home who gives good massages, demand one. You deserve it! Just don’t paint your nails directly over the bed linens, or you’ll be spending your weekend trying to scrub out that stain instead.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Meditation, deep breathing, and relaxation. You need a total zen weekend, Virgo. Grab a book about mindfulness, download a meditation app, or listen to a guided breathing exercise. Not only will you feel less stressed now, but you can continue those healthy habits throughout your work week.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Whenever you start to feel like the world is a raging dumpster fire, Libra, remember that you can learn a language for free on your phone–without ever getting out of bed. Try out a language learning app to dust off your high school Spanish or tackle a brand-new-to-you language.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio tends to keep their thoughts and feelings so private that even they don’t admit it. Get yourself a nice journal, a couple of good pens, and spend the weekend writing. If you’re more artistically inclined, you might add illustrations as well. This isn’t a to-do list or a bullet journal; it’s a chance to explore your inner world without judgment.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Take a class and improve yourself this weekend, Sagittarius. Lifelong learning is an important part of being a well-rounded adult. But if we’re being honest, you haven’t wanted to take a single class since leaving school. You can enroll in free online classes from the world’s greatest universities or find a webinar on a subject that interests you. Expand your horizons!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorns know that there is always room to improve. Grab a self-improvement book (or eBook, or audiobook) that you’ve been meaning to read and a way to take notes. It might not be most people’s idea of fun, but you enjoy both reading and strategizing ways to apply what you’ve learned.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Virtual activism is a way to stay connected and involved without leaving the house. In fact, you can do good in the world while lounging in bed. Invest in small business owners in underdeveloped nations, attend online rallies, or read up on current issues that impact your community. Just don’t get caught up with arguing on social media–that’s a waste of your time and energy.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Sleep. Just sleep. Pisces tends to stay up later than you should, and that chronic sleep deprivation takes its toll. You won’t be able to make up for all of it in a single weekend, but it’s a start. If you really want to make your sleep experience better, invest in a silk pillowcase. You will not regret it!
