One of the easiest things we can do for ourselves to change our perception of our bodies and be kinder to ourselves is to revamp who you are following on social media. Here’s why changing who you follow on social media will help you improve your body image followed by a list of some of our favorite body positive instagram accounts. 

Body Positive Instagram Accounts

An important step in working towards body acceptance is to diversify the accounts you follow on social media. This way, instead of being bombarded with people who all look a certain way and/or make you feel bad about yourself, you are instead exposed to a range of body sizes, shapes, colors, abilities, and genders. Doing this will help reconstruct your perception of beauty and body size, and move away from the unrealistic body image social media has defined as “normal”.

In my How to Improve Your Body Image blog post, I suggest two simple steps to shift our perception and improve body image. The first step is a social media cleanout (if you haven’t done this yet, I recommend going back and doing so – check out the full blog post with instructions here); the second step is to follow more body positive Instagram accounts.

Below is a list of suggested body positive Instagram accounts. I’ve done my best to exclude anyone who promotes diets, intentional weight loss or any other extreme behavior but if I’ve overlooked something please let me know. Or, if there is someone you love who you don’t see on this list, please share with me in the comments below and I will include them on the list.
