the f school’s top 10 #bodypositive accounts
Here at f school HQ, we've gotten into the habit of following body-positive activists and it has truly changed the way we see beauty. Scars, bulges, different shapes, colours and abilities - we believe that we can retrain the way our brains perceive beauty. Even if you don't struggle with your own body image, diversifying the images of "beauty" that you consume every day will go a long way to cultivating acceptance and compassion for others.
BUT: you have to do the work.
So here’s how to start:
1. Find some body-positive activists that you like (i.e. accounts that promote acceptance and appreciation of all body types).
2. Add them to your feed.
3. And every time you see something that undermines body positivity in your feed, unfollow the account. (Remember those fitness grammers you added to your feed in 2011? Yes, those! The ones that make you feel shit because you haven’t eaten kale since January 2018.)
Below is a list of our top 10 body-positive accounts to get you started.
Not on Instagram? Think about other ways you can apply this to your day-to-day. TV shows you watch, magazines you read…do they promote body positivity? Is it time to surround yourself with healthier images?
Go nuts! You’ll thank us later.
