Niche of the Week: Men’s Health Influencers

Back in January, we launched our brand new software technology, ARIA, designed to majorly cut back on the time spent conducting influencer discovery.

Fast forward a few months and ARIA has now helped us present and assign hundreds of creators to even the most niche of marketing campaigns.

Using a highly-receptive, prompt-based search engine, ARIA is able to filter out eligible influencers from a database of over 200+ million profiles according to the tiniest of details. From female micro-influencers in engineering to non-binary influencers in sustainable fashion, ARIA caters to the needs of every marketer, brand, and passer by.

To champion its capabilities, we’ve put ARIA to the test in a new series called ‘Niche of the Week’. Each week we’ll test ARIA’s prompt-based search engine by inputting detailed prompts into the search bar and exploring the results, proving ARIA’s influencer discovery power.

This week, we asked ARIA to find us 15 micro-influencers who specialise in men’s health across TikTok, Instagram and YouTube. For influencers who regularly share content on mindfulness practices, mental health awareness, emotional intelligence, and stress management techniques and for those who have created a supportive community for men to discuss mental health openly.

As awareness around men’s mental health grows, it emerges as a vital conversation to highlight. While the health and wellness industry predominantly leans towards female leadership, there’s a noticeable surge of men using social media to amplify the discourse from their unique viewpoints. 

Men’s health influencers are leveraging these platforms to share personal narratives, dispense guidance, extend support, and propose strategies for fostering a more wholesome and balanced lifestyle. In doing so, they strive to underscore the significance of prioritising mental health and overall wellbeing. 

Let’s meet the men’s health influencers changing the game.

15 MEN’S HEALTH INFLUENCERS CHANGING THE GAME ON SOCIAL MEDIA

@naji.basma

JUST 1% BETTER, 365 DAYS A YEAR, IS ALREADY 365% BETTER THAN LAST YEAR.. REAL CHANGE HAPPENS WHEN: – YOU SHOW UP EVERYDAY – YOU CHOOSE GROWTH OVER COMFORT – YOU FOCUS ON LONG-TERM GOALS RATHER THAN INSTANT GRATIFICATION – YOU QUIT ALCOHOL AND WASTING MONEY – YOU INVEST SAVINGS BACK INTO YOUR BUSINESS – YOU FOCUS ON ONE GOAL – YOUR FUTURE AND TRUEST POTENTIAL The past 12 months has changed my life for good. Focusing on growth even through discomfort, helped me discover what truly brings me joy and purpose, facilitated a lifestyle that gives me financial and time freedom, and it’s brought me closer to my true self. Now this is just the beginning of an even bigger new chapter. All it took was 1% more everyday and eventually it all wasn’t so scary and made sense. If you’re thinking about it.. take that first step today, yes it’s scary but small daily wins = life changing results. I hope this reaches whoever needs it 👊🏻 #calisthenics #calisthenicsworkout #muscleup #gym #gymmotivation

These are great self-care practices to add to your routine: 1. Setting Monthly Goals: Setting specific, achievable goals each month can help you stay focused and motivated. It’s a way to track your progress and ensure you’re moving in the direction you desire. 2. Stretching/Yoga: Regular stretching and yoga sessions can improve flexibility, reduce tension, and promote physical well-being. It’s also an excellent way to de-stress and relax. 3. Taking Time for Yourself: Dedicate moments in your schedule for self-reflection and relaxation. This can be as simple as playing the game, reading a book, or that you enjoy doing. Incorporating these practices into your monthly routine will help you maintain a balanced and holistic approach to self-care, both for your mind and body. 👌🏾 #selfcare #selfcareroutine #selfcaremen #mentalhealth #home #selfcaretips #mensmentalhealth #mensblogger #contentcreator
