We’re total suckers for a gorgeous styled yoga pose in a dreamy locale or a smoothie bowl that doubles as a work of art thanks to perfect lines of color-coordinated superfoods.
But is that what your healthy life really looks like?
This January, we’re focused on promoting honesty and transparency in wellness with our #iamwellandgood initiative.
Instead of making epic resolutions, we’re inspired by the sweaty, messy, imperfect ways real people live healthy, unfiltered lives on a daily basis.
To celebrate, we asked incredible experts to share their super honest #iamwellandgood moments via Instagram takeovers this month—look for blogger Jordan Younger, fitness pro Natalie Uhling, S.W. Basics of Brooklyn’s Adina Grigore, and more.
And most importantly, here’s how you can participate in the #iamwellandgood movement on Instagram:
+ Post a sweaty selfie. As in, a drenched-in-sweat, hair-matted-to-head selfie (bonus points for showing off your awkward weight-lifting face).
+ Share an honest photo of your healthy diet that you didn’t have time to style (you know, your crazy healthy green smoothie that always turns out brown…).
+ Tag us on your challenges (that day the 5:00 a.m. spin class alarm just didn’t work?), small triumphs, and anything else that embodies the #iamwellandgood spirit!
And by using the #iamwellandgood hashtag we’ll know you’re all in for an unfiltered wellness future where sweat and authenticity trump the allure of perfectionism—plus a chance to be regrammed, or featured on Well+Good.
+ JOIN US ON INSTAGRAM RIGHT NOW!

My mom used to tell me “the hardest part of exercise is getting to the gym/beginning”. I know that “this too will pass” and that time will heal, and as a momma, wife + entrepreneur, the best thing I can do is keep showing up for MYSELF so I can better take care of those I love. #nofilter #iamwellandgood
