It’s time to eat, drink and be merry! To add staying healthy to the mix, here are a few tips on how to stay balanced over the holidays -- by the signs.

ARIES
While sitting around conversing and eating is pleasant, it means stress for you because it goes against your active nature. Some healthy outlets: Organize a brisk hike with younger family members. Check out local gyms for full-on solo workout sessions.

TAURUS
Your love of food is your downfall. Make an extra effort to limit your intake of sugary snacks and exert portion control. To compensate: Feed your other senses! Surround yourself with scented candles, get a massage, sing some carols, and so forth.

GEMINI
You run on nervous energy and love the variety an hors d’oeuvres platter provides. The result can be endless snacking! Make sure to also include healthy choices like lean proteins and fresh veggies. Bring lots of reading material to keep your keen intellect stimulated.

CANCER
You’ll likely be doing most of the cooking using traditional recipes. Find inventive ways to lower the sodium and saturated fat content; your health and waistline will benefit! Try to limit the guest list, or make it potluck so you won’t be stressed out.

LEO
You love to dress up in holiday glam, but inactivity can lead to back pains or weight gain. Keep your feline agility by going for long walks or exercising to a video. Since your sign is all about fun and games, rally the youngsters in your life for a big skating or sledding party.

Always well organized, you may find ways to work in organic ingredients to celebrations. Stress can arise because you take on too many responsibilities. Find time to indulge in cleansing and soothing herbals teas and plenty of time for yourself.

LIBRA
You revel in the season as it provides ample excuse to socialize. To avoid possible burnout, decline some invitations and keep your social calendar within limits. Make sure to keep in touch with your diet or workout buddy; you do best when working in tandem.

SCORPIO
Keep it light, in both the menu and your attitude! Your digestion is often sensitive, so pick your foods carefully. You’re intensely tuned into emotional undercurrents. Don’t get too involved in the dramas of family and friends now lest they spoil your holiday.

SAGITTARIUS
The life of any party, you’re most inclined to overdo it over the holidays. Make sure to stay physically active to burn off some of the extra calories. Since whatever sports league you’re in is on holiday hiatus, rally a gang and hit the ski hills or other fun activity.

CAPRICORN
The holidays can lead to frustration for you, as they interrupt your work routine. Make an extra effort to relax and enjoy time with friends and family, knowing it will make you more productive later. This is also the optimal time of year to set to new fitness goals.

AQUARIUS
It’s the time of year to reach out to people. Watch that you don’t get a crick in your neck or lower back from all the time spent online doing so! Since you do best in groups, organize some realtime meetings to keep you on track with your wellness goals.

PISCES
You want everyone to have a wonderful holiday -- so much so, you may feel stressed out if they don’t! But you’re not responsible for others’ happiness, so schedule time just for you. Solitary walks and dance workout sessions are the best stress relievers for you.
