Relaxing is hard enough to do when you are busy all the dang time and never have a breather, but most people, when they get the chance, are able to relax, sleep until 10am — and consciously decompress. Especially when it comes to National Relaxation Day — which is on August 15 this year. What better time to take a chill pill than today? (Let's just try to forget it's only Wednesday).

And then there are the people who cannot, under any circumstances, relax. It’s not part of their nature and really they can’t help it.

These astrological signs live their life fast-paced and BUSY, so there is nothing that can slow them down, not even themselves.

You probably know someone who cannot relax at all — or maybe it's YOU who doesn't know relax. Whoever it is, you know that for someone who can’t relax, it’s not something new or concerning. That’s just the way she is.

She could be on a beautiful 7 day cruise and still not be relaxed. While other people on the ship are getting bronze and drinking booze, she is fighting with the front desk lady about how she didn’t get new towels last night.

So charming, right?! But don’t blame her for her uptightness at the dinner table when the service wasn’t up to par. She can’t stop stressing out and that’s just a part of her, thanks to astrology, that will never change.

And at least someone is on edge. We all need a friend who is going make sure things gets done while we are all chilling on the back porch, drinking frozen margs, and watching the sunset.

Come on, someone has to make sure that dinner is on time and not burnt to a crisp!

So who is that friend who is too energetic and nervous to be able to relax? In honor of National Relaxation Day, read on to find out which signs of these anxious zodiac signs can’t take a chill pill (and then maybe her a drink.)

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries anxious zodiac signs

When it comes to relaxing, Aries knows nothing. From day one she has been competing to be number one.

She has no time to sit back and relax. She has to keep her head in the game or she won’t succeed.

She’s also super impatient and tortures herself by being active while waiting around. Instead of chilling by the pool while her Amazon package arrives, she cleans the house top to bottom.

She doesn’t believe in inactivity and any down time drives her crazy.

The only time to relax for this chica is on vacation, and that only happens one week out of the year in she’s lucky!

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini anxious zodiac signs

Everything in a Gemini’s life is quick. The quickest thing about her is her mouth. In social situations she is the first one to make the rounds and talk to everyone.

While others may sit back and relax with a couple of friends on the couch, Gem will make sure that she has caught up with all of her friends.

Even if she has had a full day of socializing, she will still be up for chatting the night away.

She tends to get nervous and restless, but her way of combating those feelings is to just throw herself into socializing. Once she’s in there you can’t get her to stop!

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo anxious zodiac signs

Virgo is so good at analyzing small details that she sees what others may not see at first. The downfall is that she can’t stop over-analyzing things and her mind is NEVER relaxed.

Sure, she may be on the most beautiful beach and look like she is relaxing, but her mind is going a mile a minute. She’s a sign that doesn’t get much sleep at night because she can’t stop analyzing things that happened during the day.

That fight she had with her BFF keeps playing over and over in her mind and while her friend is totally OVER it, she worries so much until she falls asleep from exhaustion.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius anxious zodiac signs

Sagittarius is a big, glowing ball of energy! You can see her coming from a mile away because her energy just radiates from her.

But just like Aries, her intense energy makes her impatient as well. She enjoys being free and loves to be outdoors.

For someone who loves to fly free and use all her energy to explore, she has no time to stay back and let experiences happen without her.

She believes she should spend her time using her energy rather than wasting time to relax. It may sound crazy to all of us, but her enthusiasm for adventure is inspiring!

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces anxious zodiac signs

Pisces has a lot on her plate. She’s an awesome friend, a creative spirit, and overly trusting. No wonder she can’t relax like EVER!

Yeah, she’s an awesome friend but she gets super attached to those that show love to her. So either she is doing everything for her friends or worrying that her friends won’t give her the love she gives to them.

And when life is getting too hard she delves into her creative side to escape. But this isn’t a time to relax. She is working hard on her art, music, or other creative endeavor.

With all of this on her plate she has absolutely no time to relax!
