Temptation and allure pave the road towards a fit and healthy body. Many falter and few succeed. It is, however, in this day and age, far from impossible.
Through discipline, mental fortitude, and consistent positive external motivation, a healthy body is within reach. And despite the challenges that come with the pursuit of wellness, it is, of course, as the cliche goes: health is wealth.
The internet has become the Holy Grail of information, and with its development is the revolutionization of access to information. From blogs to social networking sites, information exploration on health and wellness itself has been ushered into fresh and new pastures. Sports coaches have gained new platforms in which to share training videos and fitness personalities have been dubbed as ‘influencers’ as they share their daily affairs with audiences from far and wide.
This, for audiences and health enthusiasts, means the availability of free and consumable content from many different parts of the internet. One prime example of such a place is Twitter. A social networking site that allows users to broadcast and showcase events in their lives they wish to share.
Through Twitter, influencers, healthcare professionals, doctors, athletes, and coaches have become empowered in sharing their thoughts, experiences, and recommendations through platforms available to them — like Twitter.
Here are some personalities you can follow on the bird app that will make you healthier:
