Instagram is an online gallery that seems to increase in popularity with each year. We know about the health freaks and the ‘foodie gurus,’ but it seems as if we are all getting even healthier. If you didn’t realize that the most influential people are on Instagram, then it’s time you start following them. 2017 is about self-actualization and we recommend you start updating your Instagram feeds and stories now. Take control of your own health environment.

Instagram Is Filled With Knowledgeable Influencers

Are you feeling a little tired of looking at the Hollywood stars for health, fitness, and beauty tips? We admit it can get a little painful. The majority of us cannot afford those over-priced skincare treatments or personal trainers and nutritionists. If you want to follow someone who lives life just like you and has found ways to keep their health and wellness tip top –  start exploring your Instagram.

There are some amazing profiles devoted to wellness that are both inspirational and authentic. If you want to make some easy-to-apply changes to your health, then look no further. From ‘foodie-gurus’ to self-made fitness and spirituality experts, these Instagrammers have it all. The best part is that – all you have to do is follow them – the tips come straight to you.

So Who Should You Be Following?

Here are some of our top choices and why we love them:
