Diversify Your Feed: Instagram Wellness

Words: Sophie Henderson

The habitual nature of Instagram is synonymous with unrealistic beauty-standards, but it can be used in a powerful and productive way: to promote wellness. The term infiltrates all aspects of living, and it essentially means taking care of yourself. The greatest wellness advocates are self love, self care and self acceptance, but they’re not always as explicit as a sentimental quote. We’ve pulled together a collection of accounts that will each take care of you in their own, unique way. Get following to boost your physical and mental wellness.

Expand your intellect with French Words

Instagram is the sanctum of distraction, so use it strategically to expand your mind. A mere exemple, French Words adds a certain je ne said quoi to your feed (and similar accounts are available in most languages). Ditch endless scrolling and hone a new skill – your mind will thank you later.
