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.
Since Scorpio thrives on intensity, power and control, you’re most in your element when your fitness regimen features these as a central component. For physical exercise, think disciplines that build your balance and control along with your muscles, such as Pilates, modern dance, Tai Chi or other martial arts. And don’t be surprised if you get a little obsessed with your new routine! Of course, it’s all too easy for your sign to take obsession a bit too far; combat this by scheduling three or four workouts per week, and limiting yourself to that. Your approach to eating well should be the same: Capitalize on your exceptional endurance and self-control, but don’t overdo it. It may even be a good idea to consult with your doctor or a nutritionist who can advise a sensible diet plan for you to stick to. Just make sure it incorporates bold, dynamic spices and other flavors that you’ll relish, since bland foods will send you looking for something more exciting.
