Social media has become a platform where anyone is able to speak and teach others. That being said, an interest in health and wellness has spiked due to the COVID-19 pandemic. People began to take their physical and mental health much more seriously over the past year and a half.
TikTok has become the most popular platform in the past two years with over 2.3 billion downloads. This means it has also been the most downloaded app in history. For those who don’t already know, TikTok is a video streaming platform where people are able to share dance, singing, and other videos in different trending categories. Everyone who downloads TikTok has a different “For You Page” or “FYP,” which is a feed of videos catered to your individual interests.
One category that grew on my FYP was health and wellness. As quarantine was in place, people including myself began to focus on their health and found tips that might help them reach their goals.
TikTok is a platform that is filled with endless ideas and tips that are able to genuinely help people in their life. I found that the health and wellness category of TikTok has grown immensely in the last few months.
I want to share some of my favorite health and wellness TikTokers that have genuinely helped me in learning more about fitness, clean eating, and mental health.

One reason that I enjoy watching her TikToks is because of her consistency of showing her daily meals. She is documenting her daily meals to help motivate others and give inspiration to those who want to lose weight.
