A little over a week ago I wrote about many different ways YouTube can change your life on the post "Enhance
Your Life The YouTube Way". Now in order to make you a believer, I need you to see that I'm not all talk. I personally recommend these channels because I was able to
achieve the confidence and motivation I needed to either cook, gain relief of physical pain, transition into a person who wears their natural hair and take a chance at trying a new
But I’m not a glam type of girl so I’m just waiting for the day these YouTubers make the process simpler for a down-to-earth girl like me and I’ll jump right on the
Tips & Tricks To Find A Channel That Suits You
It hit me one day when I noticed I search for more helpful tutorials then funny videos or new music videos. Then I looked at my friends and family and wondered why don’t they turn to YouTube
for information like I do. Googling information is stressful unless you know the right keywords.
YouTube does not discriminate against unfamiliar words so no worries about brainstorming the right word. You can type any keyword to find what you need. YouTube's sidebar of suggestions will
help most likely help you out either way.
Here are some keywords to find some of the YouTube Channels I listed above:
HAIR: Natural hairstyles, Transitioning from perm to natural
INJURIES: Lower Back Herniated Disc Exercises, Pulled Back Muscle, Neck and Shoulder Pain, Winged Scapula, Subscapularis pain, C3 C4 Herniated Exercises
(PLEASE NOTE: Only search for specific terminology if you have been diagnosed or have studied the health field and you know what to look for)
FITNESS: Get Bigger Thighs Through Squats, Thigh exercises for women
FOOD: Sugar Flower Tutorials, Modeling Chocolate
MUSIC: Beginner Piano Instructions
The downside to YouTube is that if you are not sure of what you’re looking for it can take a little while before you find the right channel to suit your needs and sometimes you’ll question
the knowledge you receive from some users. But overall it’s always one click away from a lesson worth a lifetime.
So how do you find the right channel and what can you rely on?
Reviews and Professionals.
Any accredited health professional such as doctors, usually state “The information provided is for educational or informational purposes only and you must consult a doctor for your
Any professional trainer in the fitness industry will have a business, clientele, online program or even a track record of official credentials you can trust.
But here’s where it gets a little confusing…
What about food, beauty, arts and crafts, and household tricks?
These you have to take into consideration, and when taking a YouTuber channel into consideration you should focus on the amount of subscribers, likes and reviews. I can’t stress this
enough. Reviews can either help you find a better channel or relate to your situation so you can tweak the advice you are receiving. There are a lot of people with years of experience in the
industry such as hair who don’t know how to handle YOUR TYPE of hair. Just remember to always be cautious and never follow instructions if the information or recipe doesn’t make sense.
The best channels to follow are those who are open to feedback. People want to know if their method has worked for you. When you have this type of relationship with an online YouTuber you can
guarantee they don’t want to be held responsible because they will quickly let you know it’s out of their jurisdiction so you can seek an in person professional right away.
Leave a comment below if any of these YouTube channels I listed has helped you. Or recommend a channel to me. I'm open to checking out channels you've tried too!
