I am sure you are excited to enter the new Lunar Year with hope and lots of positive energy. Today, I will talk about some important points related to your health and wellness during this year, how your health will be affected especially if you were born in the Year of the Rabbit and suggest some quick tips on how to take care of yourself during this time.
As most of you would know the celebration of the Lunar Year is mainly associated with Chinese culture but it has become common practice for many of us around the globe to celebrate the advent of the Chinese New Year in our own festive way.
With 2023 being the Year of the Rabbit, it holds great significance for all, especially regarding health and wellness. For the Chinese, the Rabbit is a tender and tame creature who represents hope and life.
Now if you look at Rabbits, they generally look healthy and energetic as they hop around gardens. The same applies to people who are born in the Year of the Rabbit.
People Born In The Year Of The Rabbit
People who are born in the Year of the Rabbit generally look healthy and full of energy but they can be troubled with symptoms of physical weakness at times. Sometimes their urinary and excretory systems don’t function as they should.
This is usually because of an unbalanced dietary preference for food. This can lead to a weak immune system in people who are born in the Year of the Rabbit.
This is the reason why they can easily catch colds or fevers. Sometimes, they may also suffer from some diseases of the digestive system.
Although people who are born in the Year of the Rabbit are energetic by nature, some of them lack the patience to take part in sports.
This characteristic combined with an unbalanced and unregulated diet increases the need for Rabbits to pay special attention to their health, remain active and exercise with the help of fitness experts who can guide them keeping in view their health and lifestyle.
Some Rabbits have bad eating habits and an unbalanced diet; because of this, they miss out on a lot of nutrients by completely avoiding some foods and over-indulging in certain foods. This can lead to some problems in the urinary system.
People Born In The Year Of The Rabbit Should Take Care Of Their Physical And Mental Health
People who are born in the Year of the Rabbit are advised to follow these basic steps to maintain their health and physical wellness:
- have a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables and fibre
- eat in smaller portions throughout the day rather than having three big meals
- drink plenty of water and fresh fruit juices
Some Rabbits can suffer from anxiety and depression. They are advised to add unsalted nuts to their diet and try yoga and meditation along with light exercise with a trainer. If they join a workout group at a local fitness studio, they will also find an opportunity to socialise as they work on their physical fitness. Art therapy is also advisable as it can help to calm their nerves.
Rabbits are already sensitive creatures, to begin with. This is the reason why they will need to pay added attention to their physical and mental well-being by bringing about positive changes to their lifestyle at the same time.
At the same time, Rabbits should not indulge in strenuous workouts or work too hard for too long. If you are a Rabbit aiming to get fit this year, you should discuss your fitness goals with a trained fitness and lifestyle coach.
