TikTok is a very… varied social network. In addition to hosting the “mainstream” content we all know (humorous videos, curiosities, dances and the like), the app also has a bit more specific content, including videos for adults and gaming. In addition to the very diverse themes, we must add the fads that arrive every so often, such as that of the disinfluencers.
And the latest of these fads is not going to leave anyone indifferent. The concept of “low vibes” is a trend in TikTok that has grown like crazy in content creators and followers, and presents us with a way to eliminate everything negative in our lives, such as addictions, bad habits, objects we don’t use and toxic relationships, to make room for the things that are worthwhile.
With texts like “low vibe things I’ve stopped doing,” more and more influencers are creating lifestyle videos in which they tell their followers about all sorts of things they’ve cut out to supposedly improve in their day-to-day lives (like excessive alcohol consumption, coffee, Instagram filters or clothes they already wear).
Although it may seem simple, the term “low vibration” also alludes to a more mystical and spiritual concept, in which everything has certain energies, and these can influence the vital energy of a person. In this way, even things as simple as a plate of food could be something vetoed by a person who considers that he or she has “low vibrations”.
It is a trend that encompasses a multitude of different content creators; some more pragmatic, who recommend eliminating bad habits from our lives and encourage improving self-confidence, and others more esoteric, who see negative energy in seemingly harmless mundane elements.
The question now is: how long will the trend last?
