Blogging and sharing their experience under the name “Adventure Faktory,” their Instagram account is about embracing life.

After following these Instagram accounts, you may want to start your own health-conscious account with your partner. But that doesn’t mean your relationship has to change. A healthy lifestyle isn’t only about natural foods or exercise, but also about finding balance for the things you love – and sharing these experiences with your significant other.
To get started, here are a few tips:
- Find an activity or hobby that you and your partner share and enjoy.
- Post daily photos of you, your partner, or both doing this activity. (So make sure you really enjoy it!)
- Use hashtags. Until you gain a strong following, popular hashtags will help others find you on Instagram.
- Tag, comment, like, and follow. Don’t just post but be engaged with other accounts that share your interests. Following similar accounts to yours, liking/commenting on others’ photos, and tagging relevant people in your own or other’s posts are ways to build online relationships and gain a strong following.
