Social media has become such a powerful tool to stay connected with the world, but just as easy it is to keep us entertained, it's also easy to fall into a wormhole of anxiety and stress depending on the type of content we're following.
This particular season has been particularly difficult - not only do we have more time to fill with media (by default), but the news doesn’t always pump out the most lighthearted information, especially in the midst of a pandemic.
That’s why we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite Instagram accounts for you to follow to sprinkle in a little extra sunshine into your feed!
If you are in need of some GOOD VIBES...
Don't forget to get your daily dose of positivity!
Morgan Harper Nichols is an artist, both in written word and design. Save it as your phone background. Send it to someone who needs to hear some real talk. Make it your weekly mantra.
Fun graphics and moments of meditation - we love this account to share in our girl gang group chats.
If you’re missing TRAVEL...
Trust us, we're looking forward to the day when we can all explore again! In the meantime, here's some inspiration.
Everytime we see a kombi, we instantly think about warm sunny days driving along the Brazilian coastline. This family logs their travels together in this Sol-Yellow Kombi, giving us ultimate #wanderlust goals and lots to add to our travel bucket lists once we’re all able to globetrot again.
If you needed a reason to start a new “saved” folder on Instagram, this is it. This compilation of amazing murals bring a lovely pop of color to your feed - perfect to brighten up your day and inspire you to keep your eyes peeled for hidden gems like these.
One word: DREAMY!
The soft sunlight that runs through this Instagram is so soothing, that we almost forget how much we miss travelling. (Key word, almost).
If you’ve been BAKING up a storm during quarantine...
You don’t need to be a fan of dessert to be absolutely mesmerized by the world of baking!
Like have you SEEN anything more satisfying than this? Two of our favorite baking accounts are @thebakefeed and @magnoliabakery for some gorgeous food photography and mesmerizing videos of frosting piping.
@raizacostaofficial is a Brazilian baker and food storyteller with bright content and an even brighter personality. You don’t need to speak Portuguese to fall in love with her personality and to drool over everything the bakes.
If you love diving into the wormhole of #OddlySatisfying content...
One of the most underrated “oddly satisfying” content is calligraphy in action.
There’s something about this traditional art form that’s so soothing to watch - the glistening ink, whimsical flourishes, and perfectly spaced out letters make alphabet-anatomy intriguing… It puts us in a trance we never knew existed.
@charlartscript is the one to watch for some really satisfying precision.
@seblester is the master of replicating brand logos on paper with such PERFECTION, we're convinced it's borderline witchcraft. Before you know it, you’ll be scrolling through his calligraphy content into the wee hours of the morning. Sorry, not sorry.
If you have an “everything’s fair game” mentality...
Sometimes we just want a good laugh, or even some iconic fashion inspo.
Some would label Gigi Hadid or Kendall Jenner as their #FashionGoals. For us, it’s Boobie.
If you’re like us, you’ve been killing some major time on TikTok. @daltonsmiley’s skit of TJMaxx opening up after lockdown is going to be all of us one day. Don’t lie. We’ll be seeing you in the parking lot.
There you have it! Fill your feeds with things that bring a little extra joy to your days - it makes a huge difference.
