Wanderlust, laughter, and passion are all parts of a Sagittarius sign’s self-care routine.
If there is one thing that Sagittarius aren’t a fan of, it’s taking a break. This fire sign would much rather move on to the next adventure than rest up. But what happens if you keep all your burners running? You get a bit of burnout.
Avoid burnout and find a self-care routine that you not only enjoy, but look forward to as much as your next project. Here are a few activities perfect for any Sagittarius.
Do It – Don’t Just Talk About It
While it can be hard to get a Sagittarius to sit still, sometimes, it can be just as hard to get them to complete a project. This extroverted sign loves to talk about new projects, ideas, or future trips, but actually starting and finishing anything can be difficult.
Whether it is a problem with focusing on one task, boredom, or imposter syndrome, one way to avoid burnout is to just start and finish one thing at a time. So, stop talking and start doing.
Follow your intuition
Having a hard time making a decision? Feel stuck between a million choices? Don’t get frustrated, just follow your intuition. As a fire sign, Sagittarius have a strong sense of intuition. You might notice that your hunches tend to be right a lot of the time. Put your trust in yourself. Listen to your intuition.
If you are having a hard time connecting with your natural intuition, then consider starting a self-discovery journey. Dive deeper into understanding yourself and your goals. The little infinite digital Self-Discovery Workbook is free and completely interactive. It’s full of journal prompts, resources, and advice to start you on your journey.
Start an Idea book or a Vision Board
Of course the main reason why Sagittarius is constantly flipping through ideas is because they are big dreamers. So, start putting those dreams into practice by creating a vision board. Dreams are easier to act on when you can see everything in one place. When you see your goal, the inspiration behind it, and the steps to achieve it, it’s more likely to get done. Keep on dreaming – just make sure you write it down.
Check out Canva or Pintrest to create your own board. Or, you can make a physical one, like this insta account.
Journal it out
There are two important reasons for Sagittarius to keep a journal. The first is so you can write down all your great ideas in one place. The second is to clear your mind at the end of the day.
Dreamers are always thinking, reflecting, and planning, so take time at the end of the day to write it out. Write down what you’ve had on your mind all day so it doesn’t keep you from getting a great nights sleep. Creating an idea journal is also a great way to keep all your ideas in one place. This you can come back or add to them in the future.

Embrace Your Wanderlust
If there is one thing that Sagittarius’s are always up for, it’s an adventure. Travel is essential to life for this sign. While many might find travel stressful and tiring, it can actually be used as self-care for the centaur sign. Just make sure to travel wisely.
Staying in one place or in one routine for too long without a break can certainly burnout a Sagittarius. So, to offset the mundane daily life, indulge in a few spontaneous trips. While it would be amazing to pop off across the world for the weekend, these trips are likely going to be more local. So consider a day trip to the beach, or check out what it interesting with in a day’s drive of home.
If you are looking for something odd, interesting, and conversation worthy, then do a quick Atlas Obscura search. This website lists some of the best places to visit that are often times off the beaten path. Who knows what is hiding in your own neck of the woods.
Of course getting away isn’t always an option. So, if you can’t leave home, then consider creating your own staycation. Theme your time “away” by creating a playlist, setting a menu for the weekend, and watching a few movies. Let that Sagittarius imagination run wild without leaving home.
Learn a new language
Wanderlust isn’t always about the actual vacation – it can also be satisfied by preparing for your next trip too. What better way to prep for that future trip than by learning another language? You don’t want to find yourself in a foreign country and not able to ask simple questions.

Visit a sacred site
Sagittarius are philosophical and reflective. They like to spend time thinking and contemplating. This gives them a spiritual side that craves knowledge. One of the best ways to feed that hunger for information is by visiting a sacred site. Whether it is a famous place of worship, an biblical location, or an ancient temple, visiting these places will speak to your spiritual side while also teaching you something new.
Embrace the Heat
Find a Sauna
Being a fire sign during winter is great because it gives you an excuse to seek out warm places. A sauna is a perfect place for a Sagittarius because not only is it warm, but it can be extremely restorative and relaxing. You might be able to find a sauna at a local spa or gym, but you can also make your own version at home. All you have to do is turn your shower on hot and let the room fill up with relaxing steam.
Deep Tissue Massage
Is your body feeling stiff from your adventures? Muscles feeling sore from exercising or sports? Treat yourself to a deep tissue massage. The deep kneading of your muscles creates a warmth inside your body that increases circulation, treats chronic pain and tension, as well as relives anxiety.
Combine self-care, relaxation, and exercise with a bit of hot yoga. Fire signs feed off of heat, so the hot and humid atmosphere of a hot yoga studio can feel invigorating. Combine that with the stretching and strength of yoga and you might just fall in love and add this to your workout routine.
Change It Up
Predictability makes for a boring self-care routine for Sagittarius. If something is routine, the it is easier to convince yourself to avoid it for other, more exciting things. So, change it up!

You might not think of re-decorating as a form of self-care, but if you are going to spend a lot of time in one space, then you want to make sure that it feels just right. Here are a few places to look for inspiration.

Embrace Philosophy and Spirituality
Sagittarius, on the outside, seem like fun, carefree, optimists that don’t have a care in the world. Inside, they are intense thinkers and philosophers. Anyone close to a Sagittarius knows they are big conversationalists. Part of this comes from their desire to learn about new ideas.

Refocus on your spiritual practices
No matter if you follow certain religious practices or have other spiritual beliefs, a great form of self-care for Sagittarius is to take some time to re-focus on your practice. Take some time and reconnect with what drew you to your practice. Visit a place of worship. Talk about it with others. This spiritual re-focus certainly help you feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
Learn about other spiritual practices
Of course what better way to feed that desire to discuss philosophy than to learn about spiritual practices different than your own. Much like when you re-focus on your own practices, to learn about others consider reading other religious texts, visiting places of worship, and having respectful conversations with others. Here are a few books to start.
