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 sociable Libra, making wellness a group event can ensure a long-term, positive lifestyle change. After all, if you’re like many Libras, your downfall might be eating out at too many restaurants or hitting too many clubs with your friends. Not only can that take a toll on your health, it’s also hard on your budget! And being the sign of the Scales, you’re all about balance in all things. Instead of inviting friends to your favorite eatery, have them over for a potluck dinner with a wholesome, healthful theme. Ask everyone to bring copies of their recipes so you can recreate them on your own. And when you’re out at a club, try soda water with a splash of juice and a twist of lime for a tasty, low-calorie “mock-tail” that’s easy on your wallet. Continuing with the balance theme, yoga, Tai Chi or a core training class can provide an enjoyable workout that helps you build strength and balance.
