Positive Insta Accounts To Follow
Managing your mental health online can be a real challenge, and Instagram can be particularly anxiety-inducing to many. However, social media is what you choose to make of it – meaning it can actually be a really positive place to spend time IF you choose to follow accounts that uplift and inspire you!
Nowadays, with filters and editing apps at our fingertips, it can be difficult to spot what’s fake from reality. While we are all well aware that scrolling through endless posts of “picture perfect” bodies and lavish lifestyles can take a harmful toll on our self-esteem, this type of media is hard to avoid.
Let’s work together to make our Insta feeds a more productive space, starting with just a few of our favourite accounts…

She uses her Instagram to explore topics of self-love and acceptance in the most authentic form, reminding her following to be confident in their authentic, unfiltered selves.
