I'll come clean. I'm writing this blog entry jacked up on cold medicine, tissues streaming out of the box like a magic trick. Why do I always seem to get sick this time of year? I consulted the health magazines and was quickly overwhelmed by the avalanche of suggestions. Stop telling me what to do, health magazines! Achooo!
So let's go slow. Let's start with one tip. What's the one thing you could do this season to help you stay healthy?
ARIES and SAGITTARIUS are Fire signs who need to burn off some energy to keep the season -- and their health -- bright. Make exercise a priority. With so much to do this time of year it's easy to let the gym drop off the schedule, but don't. The serotonin is like Christmas lights to the bloodstream, spreading good cheer and good health, too.
TAURUS and SCORPIO are among the most sensual of the zodiac and they give through their sense of touch. This is why carrying a small bottle of hand sanitizer at all times will save these two from Grinchy seasonal germs.
Air sign socialites, GEMINI and LIBRA, are often very generous when others are sick, insisting that they don't mind and aren't worried about catching the cooties, etc. Well, now it's time for them to knock that off and keep away from sneezing people.
CANCER and PISCES are sensitive and susceptible creatures who need extra time to recharge. Getting the maximum amount of sleep will keep you in tip-top jollyness.
LEO, the theatrical cat, is renewed by entertainment. Humor is best. Leo’s immune system is buoyed by the levity of laughter.
For Earth signs VIRGO and CAPRICORN, eating right is more than a habit, it's a fascination. A superfood a day keeps the doctor away. Current favorites: kale, salmon, chia seeds, and that good old-fashioned favorite, the apple.
As the sign of technology, AQUARIUS might consider using theirs to save a few trips to the mall, where all of humanity is spreading lovely strains of cold and flu. Bonus, you'll find online shopping a hassle-free, stress-free joy.
