Attached Snakes may face trouble in paradise, but hold firm to the foundations of your relationship and this too shall pass.

While your health fortune for 2022 may not be the best, it’s nothing that regular exercise and a more active lifestyle won’t help with. You’d also benefit from a healthier diet with reduced fast food and tidbits. Remember, your metabolism ain’t gonna be the same forever.
