If you think about it, you’re in control of how your social media makes you feel-you just have to follow the right people. But it’s so easy to feel inferior-and to follow-“Insta stars” who have Victoria’s Secret or GQ looking bodies and perfectly airbrushed faces.
So if you’re following those people, and their posts make you feel bad about your image, click unfollow (like right now) and start following inspirational people like fitness bloggers! Many of them have super inspirational transition stories that prove anyone can live a healthy life and be happy.
To make your life a little easier, we’ve rounded up ten health and fitness #girlboss bloggers and Instagramers that you need to follow ASAP for some major inspiration. What you see on your social feed reflects how you feel, look and what you want out of life.
But before you start a body cleanse, start with your mind first and filter out those bad social media vibes.
Get ready, get set and go start following these empowering Instagramers for a more positive life.
