Social media is powerful. It is an incredible tool to help you connect with others who share similar experiences and open your eyes to someone else's perspective. But like everything else in this world, it has its good and bad sides.
Social media can be an unhealthy place if your feed is filled with images of unrealistic, glamorized lives of friends and influencers. And let's face it - that's how most of our feeds look. But don't worry! We're here to make your feed more positive. Body positive Instarammers are making their space in social media and changing the way we think about and view bodies of different shapes, sizes and colors.
