Whether you’re setting a resolution for the new year or simply realizing that it’s time to take charge of your health, there is no time like the present to launch a new and improved diet and fitness regimen. But mere willpower isn’t enough. Some say a failure to plan is tantamount to planning to fail — but you won’t make that mistake. Set yourself up for success by gathering the information you need before you embark on your journey toward wellness. What’s one great place to begin? With the Zodiac — specifically, your own Sun sign. Read on to gain insight into your astrological strengths to harness, pitfalls for your sign to avoid, and the very best ways to get your health on track.
When it comes to wellness, innovative Aquarius likes to go your own way. Your ideas about maintaining good health might be viewed as rather alternative by others — you might be into yoga or meditation, for example, or acupuncture, or a macrobiotic diet. Any and all of these could be excellent choices to incorporate into your routine, as long as you focus on that keyword, “routine.” You actually thrive on routine, and you have excellent follow-through. Thus, your key toward a healthy lifestyle is simply to make a plan and then begin it. If you decide to try yoga, for example, enroll in a three-month course rather than going on a class-by-class basis, so you’ll be more likely to carry through to the end. As for making positive dietary changes, explore vegetarian, vegan, macrobiotic or “loca-vore” diets; each of these has demonstrable health benefits and will appeal to your progressive, humanitarian nature.
