Staying healthy in body and mind can be a challenge in today’s stressful world, but for each sign there are some simple steps which will help to keep you feeling vibrant and strong.
Aries (March 20th - April 19th)
Your metabolism is high and you’re typically full of energy, but your tendency to rush in does make you accident prone. Stress headaches and high blood pressure can be a problem, especially if you find it difficult to control your anger.
Wellbeing Tips: Try to avoid overly spicy foods and give meditation a go for its calming influence.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
You love the good things in life, which is a mixed blessing. Although you have a calm and even tempered demeanor, you are prone to putting on weight and to over-indulging in food and alcohol. Throat infections can also be a concern.
Wellbeing Tips: Seek positive ways to boost your self-esteem so that you can more easily avoid comfort eating.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
You take a very rational approach to your health, but nerves and excess energy can leave you feeling restless and uneasy. Look after your arms, shoulders and hands, particularly if you enjoy sports. You thrive on a varied exercise routine.
Wellbeing Tips: Don’t neglect your mental health – it’s crucial that you have plenty of interests to keep your mind busy.
Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)
Worrying over your health can make you ill! Your worst fears are usually brought about by an over-active imagination, and you’re often too busy taking care of others to take proper care of yourself. It’s important that you get plenty of sleep.
Wellbeing Tips: Strive for a balanced diet in order to avoid digestive upsets. Regular checkups will help ease your worries.
Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)
You don’t really “do” ill, and you’re a terrible patient. Fortunately, you have a strong constitution and you soldier on through minor ailments with ease. Your back is vulnerable, however, especially if you go on an exercise binge. Moderation is key.
Wellbeing Tips: Do less exercise but more frequently – try to adopt a step by step approach which you can sustain.
Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)
You are preoccupied with your health, but you much prefer alternative and natural remedies to mainstream medicine. Worry and anxiety can lead to digestive complaints, but you’re generally wise enough to take good care of yourself.
Wellbeing Tips: Yoga and mindful martial arts are great exercise for you, involving both body and mind.
Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)
Your energy levels can be quite low, so good nutrition is essential for you. It’s sometimes hard for you to motivate yourself to exercise, as you hate being sweaty or out of breath. Weight issues or low self-esteem need careful psychological handling.
Wellbeing Tips: Find a graceful form of exercise you enjoy – dance, perhaps, or swimming, and stick at it.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
You’re prone to depressive moods or mania, and you do tend to take things to extremes, whether that’s over-eating or over-exercising. Learning to take a more steady approach to life will benefit your overall wellbeing in many ways.
Wellbeing Tips: Find a creative outlet for your passions and obsessions, to direct them away from harmful activities.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)
You have a high metabolism and a thirst for adventure which generally keeps you fit and active – a very good thing. However, frustrations and restlessness can mount up to cause high blood pressure or emotional turmoil, so your mental health is important.
Wellbeing Tips: Hypnotherapy would help you in releasing negative behavior patterns and forming positive ones.
Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)
Your joints tend to be vulnerable and you counter this by not exercising – in fact, you need to exercise more but with greater care. Your dental health is important to you too, but overall your wellbeing would improved by a conscious choice to be happier.
Wellbeing Tips: Life coaching could help you uncover new joys in life. Look into nutritional support for your joints.
Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)
When you’re ill, you tend to be very hard on yourself, and you can be your own worst enemy. Poor circulation can be a problem for you, and you feel the cold more than most. A less harsh approach to your health would be beneficial. Be kind to you.
Wellbeing Tips: Invest in your health emotionally and spiritually, rather than treating your body as an inconvenient machine.
Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)
Your highly sensitive emotions can create a lot of doubts, fears and worries which go on to negatively affect your physical health. Allergies and drug sensitivities are often a problem, and a natural approach to wellbeing would eliminate some of those issues.
Wellbeing Tips: Look into naturopathy or homeopathy. Avoid alcohol, nicotine and other habit forming substances.
