Instagram used to stress me out. I would scroll though and see unrealistic, unattainable lives in every other photo. My Instagram feed was full of FaceTune and Photoshop. That’s not good for anyone. Since then I’ve started being more intentional with who I follow, and unfollow at that. One of the best things you can for your own journey is to diversify who you follow online. There are so many incredible body neutrality, body confidence and body positive role models that you can follow on Instagram and TikTok.
