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 free-spirited Sagittarius, who lives for the excitement of spontaneity, the very phrase “exercise routine” might send you running in the opposite direction. But getting and staying healthy can be a challenging adventure. Capitalize on your natural love of learning by finding a cookbook or taking a cooking class that will teach you about healthful meals you and your family will enjoy. Ethnic cuisines, such as Mediterranean or Vietnamese, can be a great way to shrink your waistline while stimulating your palate. As for physical exercise, keep it fun and fast-paced, and be sure to switch it up often. Try learning a new skill, such as martial arts, horseback riding or yoga. Circuit training is also right up your alley, since the variability is built right in. Who knows? You might fall so in love with your new activity that you wind up teaching others to do it, too.
