The only detox you should be doing is a social media detox! Unfollow all those “thinspo” and “fitspo” accounts and fill your feed with these body-positive Instagram accounts.
With all the time we spend on social media these days, who we follow can have a significant impact on how we view ourselves and the expectations we set for our bodies.
The content you consume should make you feel good, not bad! A good rule of thumb is to unfollow anyone that makes you feel like you need to lose weight or go on a diet.
And then, follow accounts that help you build meaningful self-care habits!
