Hey love! I've got a quick post for you today inspired by an amazing client I chatted with last week.
She shared that she followed quite a few fitspo accounts on Instagram in an attempt to motivate her to make healthy lifestyle choices. The more we chatted the more she realized most of those accounts weren't actually inspiring her at all, they were causing her to feel guilty and ashamed.
Inspiration by its very definition is meant to encourage and fill you with hope, confidence, and life. But many of those fitspo accounts discourage, depress, and chide.
I encouraged her to take inventory. And I encourage you to do the same. Ask yourself this one question, when I look at my favorite wellness Instagrammer's account, do I feel like I'm enough and can take good care of myself or do I feel like I'll never be enough and can never do enough?
If the accounts you're following aren't making you feel like your body is good, wise, and you're perfectly capable of nurturing it without depriving it, then I encourage you to reevaluate if they deserve to take up any space on your social media feed.
Guilt and shame never created lasting change.
In need of some new accounts to follow? I got you! I'm sharing a few of my favorite truly inspiring accounts I think you should take a peek at and maybe, just maybe, add to your feed.
