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.
For communicative Gemini, your best workouts are those you complete with a friend by your side. Having a companion keeps you engaged — talking and trading stories keeps your mind off the hard work your body is doing — and can motivate you to persevere through those tough moments when you might quit early if you were on your own. For this reason, gym classes and team sports are right up your alley. A social element also helps with healthy eating; try enrolling in a cooking class to get new meal ideas, joining a diet pool at work, or starting a dinner share with friends or neighbors, so you don’t have to do all the cooking yourself. A dinner share also solves the problem of boredom; it’s so much more exciting to anticipate what someone else is going to make than to sort through your own, tired recipes. For you, the key to making long-term changes is finding ways to keep your routine feeling fresh and exciting. That’s more easily said than done, but if anyone can do it, clever Gemini can!
