When it comes to TikTok, most people think it’s just a bunch of teenagers doing a choreographed dance in public while holding up pedestrian traffic or doing the latest challenge to go viral. However, TikTok has a lot of varying accounts that deal with a wide range of issues. You can end up spending hours on TikTok watching some of the most mentally grating that the world has to offer, but you can also come across a lot of positivity. For your daily mental boost, you should be following these five most positive TikTok stars.
5. Niki Patton (@niki_patton)
With over 1.7 million followers, Niki Patton describes herself on TikTok as “the big sister you didn’t know you needed.” Patton posts advice for fellow women, including giving confidence tips and general positivity. There’s also that sisterly advice that includes what she wishes she had known before moving to college, how to deal with being left out and many more topics. Patton has been able to use her TikTok fame to become an employee at HBO Max, interestingly enough.
4. Koalite (@Koalite)
We all love dogs, and sometimes you just need an account where the bio simply reads “dog” to get the best out of TikTok. This is why Koalite is one of our favorite TikTokers, as it’s a dog and his owner just hanging out and being adorable. It’s a surefire way to brighten your day thanks to videos like Koalite getting a brushing or even just having a snack like salami where he inhales it all in one bite.
3. Bruna & Natalie (@natalieandbruna)
Becoming a new parent, you want to document your child growing up in front of you so that you have plenty of fond memories to look back on. That’s what social media personality Natalie has done with her daughter Bruna. The two have shared real world experiences that include traveling across the globe and general parenting advice. Now, the mother-daughter combo has over 2 million followers on TikTok and brings a lot of new parent cuteness to the scene.
2. Spencer Brabosa (@spencer.barbosa)
The power of supporting other women is at the forefront for people like Spencer Barbosa, a teenager that has been posting on TikTok since its early days. Barbosa has gathered a following of over 7 million people, highlighting self love and body positivity in the process. Barbosa is a former child actor who has done several commercials and a few television shows so she knows what it’s like to be scrutinized at a young age. Thankfully, she’s looking to break that cycle and teach everyone that they’re beautiful and important.
1. Wholesome Simon (@wholesomesimon)
You may notice that there haven’t been many posts on this account if you’re checking it right now. That’s because Simon has walked away from the TikTok scene, but has left plenty of positivity on his account for the world to see and has raised a lot of money for mental health awareness. This includes building a school in Malawi and raising thousands for various nonprofit organizations. “In a way it feels like I’m taking my own advice for the first time and finally putting myself first,” Simon said in a farewell post. “As always keep it wholesome.”
