Whether it’s the first of January and you’re making New Year’s resolutions, it’s springtime and you want to get ready for swimsuit season, or you’re simply realizing that the time has come to gain control of your fitness and overall wellbeing, now is the perfect time for launching a brand-new health regimen. But anyone who has tried to lose weight, get fit or otherwise improve their health knows that willpower alone won’t cut it. The straightest, quickest path to success includes information — specifically, the knowledge and insight you can gain from studying your Zodiac sign. Based on your sign, you possess unique strengths to harness and challenges to avoid as you start your journey toward a new, healthier and better you. Read on to find out all about how to use the wisdom of astrology to get and stay fit and healthy.
For Capricorn, working hard and striving for improvement are a way of life. Thus, these, along with your ambitious, goal-oriented nature, are your gifts to employ when seeking to improve your health and wellbeing. Whether you’re trying to lose weight, lower your cholesterol or improve your racing time, be sure to set measurable, specific goals — lose ten pounds, complete a 5K race, run an eight-minute mile — and keep track of your progress. And don’t forget to reward yourself when you reach those milestones of success! Since you rarely indulge in pampering relaxation, set up a goal-and-reward system that builds that in, such as earning a bubble bath or an afternoon nap for reaching your target. You also have a competitive streak, so joining a soccer or basketball team could be a great motivator to get physically fit. As for dietary changes, set some rules for yourself and your family to follow, such as no chips or sweets in the house, or filling three-quarters of your plate with fruits and vegetables at every meal.
