‘Ello TDP blog reader! Each month, we’re gonna be giving you the scoop on the latest IG Reel trends and how you can use them in your Instagram strategy. Ya welcomes!


Trend: “Going for a stupid walk”


What’s the trend?: With all those lockdowns of 2021 [*shudders*] came “Stupid Little Walk” season when the highlight of your day was leaving the house one time per day to walk for 2 hours around your 5km radius just to feel something.

They were an absolute blessing at a time when there wasn’t all that much to look forward to on the daily, and even in 2022, the Stupid Little Walk is still embraced and perfectly captured in this Instagram Reel trend. Of course, these walks ain’t stupid at all. Walking is really good exercise and can do wonders for your mental health. 

Think of it as “me doing this useful thing for this really useful benefit but like, wish someone else could just do it for me.” 🙄🤣
