In case you hadn’t heard the exciting news, TikTok will be leading a new health-focused initiative that allows users to curate the app’s content for a more mindful experience.
According to a report by Champney’s, the initiative is called the ‘Wellness Hub’ and it will be housing all things pertaining to food, nutrition, fitness, life advice, mindfulness and skin care, in the hopes of fostering a more positive online environment. The hub was created in response to TikTok users wanting to take their wellbeing into their own hands, after COVID-19 made access to amenities such as the gym, spa and salons more difficult.
