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 dreamy, imaginative Pisces, it can be tough to get a wellness routine going. You might be more apt to think about it than to act on your many ideas; furthermore, too many ideas or a lack of information can make you feel overwhelmed, sapping your willpower. Therefore, it’s best to keep it simple: Write down a list of a few healthful meals you know you enjoy, and commit to eating them at least every other day. That way, you can shop for the same set of ingredients once a week, so you’ll have them on hand when you need them. To incorporate physical exercise into your lifestyle, try swimming — you’re a Water sign, after all — or start a neighborhood dog-walking business, so you can get your heart pumping while enjoying the company of your neighbors’ furry friends. Speaking of animals, committing to eating vegetarian for one or more meals per week will cut down on calories along with animal cruelty.
