10 Instagram Accounts That Will Brighten Your Day

       Social media is constantly consuming our time and quite frankly, consuming our lives. From the minute you wake up to the moment you go to sleep you are most likely surrounded by it all day long. Of course social media has it's positives but I think that it can contribute to our lives in a more negative way then we realize. I think that if you are going to use social media apps, like Instagram for example, you can use it in a way that uplifts you and inspires you rather than making you feel like you aren't enough. We all know what I'm talking about here, right? Those Instagram accounts of people living their "perfect lives" where you start scrolling and instantly start asking yourself "why isn't my life like this?". Well the truth is that even those people's lives aren't like that! No one's Instagram account depicts their day-to-day life perfectly; the entire purpose is to show your friends and family the fun snippets of your life. But this can often lead to a false reality of someone's life which can lead to comparison, jealousy, and negative self-talk. A couple of years ago I decided that I would only follow Instagram accounts that left me feeling inspired and happy because is that not the entire point? I listed below 10 Instagram accounts that I think you should follow if you need to amp up your Insta following. Unfollow the accounts that make you feel like you aren't enough and fill your feed with so many happy things. Enjoy!
