8 Great Instagram Accounts for Women
“Instagram is the worst social media for mental health.”
Ugh, we’ve probably all experienced reasons why this headline from TIME Magazine proves to be true. Depression, anxiety, a “compare and despair” attitude, inadequacy, FOMO… Sound familiar?
A Tool to Promote Wellness & Wellbeing
Instagram may just “be the worst,” but it’s also evolved into a powerful resource. By carefully curating your feed, your Instagram can become a personal place of positivity cultivated just for you. If your scrolls leave you feeling not good enough or you’re completely numb to its content anyway, then it’s time for a cleanse and to rebuild. The goal? To make connections that uplift you with good vibes and impactful takeaways. Live life with intention and mindfulness? How about scrolling intentionally and mindfully. These eight accounts can get you started.
