If you’re like lots of Cancers, you’re an emotional eater — someone who combats stress or sadness with familiar, comforting flavors. Most Cancers also nurture their loved ones with the same types of hearty, stick-to-your-ribs recipes that are family favorites. The problem, of course, is that these foods aren’t great for your overall health, even if eating them feels good in the moment. Thus, improving your eating habits is a big part of overall wellness for you. You may even want to explore your lifetime relationship with food with a therapist, or at least with a supportive friend. At any rate, when you decide to make a change, recruit your loved ones’ assistance and encouragement, which can make all the difference in your long-term success. The same goes for exercise: Playing softball with your children can be a fun family event, while pickup games with colleagues or hitting the gym with a pal makes moving your body so much more fun. Soon, you’ll start craving your workout sessions, since physical exercise is wonderful at regulating moods and increasing overall happiness.
