After a bit of a digital detox over the past few months, I am back to enjoying Instagram again, and I have realised that there were a few accounts that I missed more than others. It turns out that all but one of these accounts belong to young, female, fit and healthy Brits living in London. I spent 5 years living in London from when I was 18 to 23, and I think I am somehow trying to vicariously relive those years (though perhaps in a parallel universe, as I was in no way fit or healthy at the time!)
I am obviously still following all of my favourite tennis accounts, and you can find out more about those here. But read on for my opinion of the best Instagram accounts to follow that don’t focus on tennis.
Follow if… you love pick and mix but don’t like avocado (or any other green slimy foods), you are fed up of bullshit in the fitness industry, and you like a good white IG theme
Follow if… you want to follow a blogger with substance, someone who cares passionately about fitness, conscious living, mindfulness and meditation, plant-based food, positivity, self love, and empowerment of women.
Follow if… you want to follow someone who speaks to you as though you were her best friend (and shares everything related to her workouts, recipes, clothes and feelings)
Follow if… you have bought some chia seeds, avocado, chickpeas, sweet potato, quinoa and kale, but you have no idea what to do with them
Follow if… you think the Instagram fitness/health industry takes itself too seriously and needs the piss taken out of it every now and then!
And, of course, make sure you follow @40ish_love if you are a fan of tennis or even just its fashion (!) and you are curious to see how my plant-based diet is going. Let me know who you think I should be following the comments below.
