5 Tips for Body Positive Fitness

I don't talk much about fitness on Instagram. I don't take gym selfies (mainly because I don't go to the gym), I don't post screenshots of my workout stats or pictures of my salad. The reason for this is that I never want to be the source for someone else's negative comparison. I never want to encourage the idea that being physically fit makes you morally superior, or that eating avocado makes you a better person, even though I really do love avocado. People's relationships with food and exercise are damn complicated, and I never want anyone who follows me to feel pressured, damaged, unworthy or generally bad about themselves for not being a paradigm of physical fitness. Because when it comes to body positivity, physical fitness is largely irrelevant anyway.
