The 30 Best Wellness Blogs to Start Reading Now

The 30 Best Wellness Blogs to Start Reading in 2021 | Tiny Trips

Looking to bring more wellness into your life? These days, you can find tips on self-care, nutrition, and fitness pretty much everywhere, but not all wellness blogs are created equal. Great wellness blogs can be a relaxing and fun way to bring some healthier habits into your life, but you have to be careful — there is also a lot of snake oil out there!

We combed the internet for the best of the best, who champion truly healthy eating (not fad diets), energizing movement (more than just exercise for weight loss), taking a break (rather than pushing productivity above all else), and more, so you can practice self-care without implementing unnecessary restrictions in your life. Enjoy our 30 best wellness blogs to find your new favorite, and let us know in the comments if we missed someone you love.
