Septembers IG Shoutouts

Every month, we highlight 12 individual accounts from Instagram to promote positive mindsets and empower people to live healthier lifestyles. 

This September has brought a new season (Fall). With a new season comes new reasons to conquer fears, change adverse situations into conquerable goals, and move towards the vision of yourself that will fulfill your purpose and expand your horizon. 

With those thoughts in mind, we have gathered our list, hoping that those in need find the resolution to the conflicts barring their future in pain and replacing it with happiness instead. 

Listed in no special order and with no affiliation beyond that of uniting positive connections, we present you with September 2021 (12) Instagram shoutouts:

The following accounts are full of content designed to promote a healthier mindset and lifestyle. Although social media can have negative effects on people, it can also completely and positively alter the course of life. 

This month, flipflops2chanel wants to focus on accounts that make it easy to justify using social media platforms as a valuable tool in the fight against all things hindering progress like lack of support, education, or caring professionals. Thus, we begin with a life coach who wants to help people gain empowerment through adversity and supports, teaches, and cares as she does it!  

  1. Mightypersectives | Life & Mindset Coach Stephanie 

Stephanie | Life/Mindset Coach (@mightyperspectives) • Instagram photos and videos

Empowerment is a beautiful thing to find. But, unfortunately, many people live in pain and lack the know-how or desire to fully enjoy the benefits awarded to those in control of their mindset and lifestyle. 

A personal coach can help with those needs. Enter Stephanie from Stephanie | Life/Mindset Coach (@mightyperspectives) • Instagram photos and videos

Her fundamental understanding of “Owning it” is evident by content filled with motivational support and advice. 

However, her thoughtful way of sharing information about complicated situations or mental ailments like anxiety has us following her account and appreciating every second of it. 

Learn more about emotional triggers, self-care tips, and the art of moving forward to achieve the impossible. 

You can also find Stephanie at facebook.com/mightyperspectives; if you prefer Facebook interactions. Please don’t miss the opportunity to talk to a caring Life Coach in tune with people seeking positive life skillsets to make changes in their personal, mental, physical, or financial issues.   

  • Nicole Impala | Health & Fitness Coach and PCOS Warrior 

Nicole Impala (@nicoleimpala_dogmom) • Instagram photos and videosDog Mom to Remy | Linktree

According to Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) - Symptoms and causes - Mayo Clinic, PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is a hormonal disorder most commonly found in females of childbearing age. Once diagnosed with PCOS, doctors usually recommend more testing. They look for issues ranging from sleep apnea, infertility, anxiety, and depression to blood pressure, glucose tolerance, heart disease, and other likely complications that may arise from this condition. Please research more about this subject, especially if you have symptoms like irregular periods, excess androgen (a male hormone that promotes facial and body hair, severe acne, and baldness), or polycystic ovaries. 

We had to share that critical information to introduce this kindhearted dog mom, motivational fitness expert, and PCOS warrior who spreads awareness with humor and love. 

Nicole Impala is an excellent example of how adopting a positive mindset can influence changes with positive results. Thus, we cannot get enough of her comedic yet encouraging approach to life.

  • Nik Hyland | Holistic Wellness & Virtual Retreat 

Nik Hyland (@nik_maree_xo) • Instagram photos and videosVirtual Retreat 2021 — THE HEALTH HUB (health-hub-online.com)

Nik Hyland is a woman on a mission to bring self-love, health, and holistic wellness to people seeking more out of life. Her content reflects a calming state of mind with serene images of nature, family, and an abundance of hope.  

The opportunity to get the experience of a retreat from the comfort of your home is available on September 11, 2021. This virtual retreat is only $15.00 AUD; however, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that the proceeds/money will be donated to a charity called Nutrition Plus. 

They are an Australian and New Zealand-based charity created to improve the health of Indigenous and other disempowered people. They provide funding, education, and the promotion of healthy eating choices. However, they do so much more, so check out the link below if you are interested in learning more about this charity. 

Nutrition Plus – Australia wide charity whose purpose is to improve the health of Indigenous Children

Although this drive is ending soon, we hope sharing it will encourage another drive soon or for more people to find ways to support causes like these and people like Nik Hyland. Her level of skillset and consideration for others impresses not only us but also the people who comment on her post. 

We hope you enjoy the content found @nik_maree_xo and find it helpful to positive growth.

  • Kalpna |Psychotherapist 

Kalpna | Psychotherapist (@wellness_thinking) • Instagram photos and videos  

We had to highlight this account this month because, with Covid related complications like financial or emotional stress on the rise, professionals that offer discounted rates should be applauded when they set aside greed to help others. 

After further researching @wellness_thinking, we learned that Kalpna Hirani is a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), offering reduced rates for counseling and psychotherapeutic services due to the financial and emotional burdens people are experiencing due to covid. 

We say cheers to Kalpna Hirani for understanding mental health care needs and the financial burden it may impose on the less fortunate is critically misaligned. The following link is to the Wellness-thinking website, where you can get more information about services, costs, and treatment plans.

Shades of Healing Therapy PLLC (@shadesofhealingtherapy) • Instagram photos and videos

Diamond Rodgers is a licensed marriage & family therapist that services Las Vegas, NV, specializing in culturally competent therapy, women’s issues, family and couples’ therapy. 

She uses meditation, mindfulness, and art therapy techniques in easy-to-follow steps. Moreover, she shares detailed information about the advice she offers and not just a meme. For example, her post on “5 Reasons Boundaries Are Important” answered the why, how, what, who, and when questions of the post itself. As a result, we learned why boundaries are important, how to incorporate them, what boundaries are, who needs them, and finally, when we should set boundaries in general. All of which helps us understand the content and easily use techniques too. 

Check out @shadesofhealingtherapy to see more content about stress management, inspirational quotes, and all other material related to living a happy life. However, you can also see her website (linked below) for more information, resources, and a blog section you may find helpful.
