Everybody needs a whole lot of self-love all the time. Since we are our own worst critic, it's amazing when we have people around us preaching self-acceptance and body positivty for us. For those procrastinating scrolls through instagram, here are 10 body positive accounts to follow to get in your daily dose of self-love:
Shelah Marie, of the broadcasts "Soul Study with Shelah," is into yoga and a healthy lifestyle. She belives in feeding your soul as much as you do your body. Her struggles with anxiety and suicide have led her to focus on positivity and growth. Shelah advocates body positivty through her journey to a healthy lifestyle.
Tess Holliday is the World's first size 22 supermodel and founder of #effyourbeautystandards. Tess is unapologetically her, and she urges others to be the same way.
Gabi Gregg is a swimwear designer, plus size model, and fashion blogger. Her account is littered with gorgeous selfies and photos of fabulous outfits. She is an inspiration to always dress for you and feel amazing while doing so.
A plus size model who recently lost 250 pounds, Rosie Mercado is the epitome of body positivity, but not because of her weight loss. She is such an inspiration, because she lost weight for her health, not for anyone else.
Tracee Ellis Ross is without a doubt already amazing for her roles in film and television, but she will not stop there. She claims to be a "culture of beauty disrupter," and that is exactly what our culture needs. Beauty should not be measured and compared; beauty is everywhere.
Gabourey Sidibe, my favorite part of American Horror Story: Coven and Empire, is in the new Lane Bryant campaign, and she is slaying.
