The adage “put good in, get good out” isn’t only a phrase that can refer to the food you consume into your body — it also plies to what you consume on social media as eating nutritious foods can have positive physical effects the. Same way, a “diet” of social accounts that encourage and inspire will help you continue on your quest to live better health.
However, social media is well-known for showing unrealistic pictures of health.
It doesn’t matter if it’s pictures of impossible bodies or salads with no leaves. Social media accounts can make you feel that the ideal lifestyle of a healthy person is only reserved for a few.
Instead of reading accounts that make you feel down, you could follow people who show real-world methods to eat healthily and have honest discussions about the difficulties of making this happen.
