Gratitude, balance, mental health, meditation, therapy...it may surprise you to learn that one of the most engaged-with categories on social media is 'Mindfulness'.

At its best, social media shines a light on issues and resources that help viewers live a better off-line life. In this fast-paced digital era, accounts that address the mental and emotional journies of their followers are seeing a hugely positive response, not just online, but in real life as well.
