The Six Fix: Instagram Accounts That Are Actually Good For Your Mental Health

 

By Angeline Cheng

Life is hard; it’s a well-known fact. A lot of us wake up everyday feeling dull and uninspired, get through the day, only to find ourselves back to the same old bed we dreaded to get up from in the first place.

Reading motivational books and articles help, especially when you’re emotionally and mentally tired. But in case you don’t have the luxury of time and are looking for something to digest on-the-go, Instagram will be your new BFF.

Besides the celebrities, influencers, and hotties we keep an eye on, there's quite a lot of gems to be found on the platform, not only for your entertainment purposes but also for your mental and emotional well-being. Here, we listed down some of the Instagram accounts you can follow to give you hope and light when the road seems too dark and unending.

1. @stacieswift

It’s really not hard to see why illustrator and writer Stacie Swift has that many followers on Instagram. With her art primarily focusing on bringing positivity and self-care, it’s truly an account worth following especially when it comes to shutting down all those self-doubt thoughts in your system and for reminding you that it’s okay not to be okay all the time.

No matter what you're going through in life, always know that there are tons of things that you can do to make yourself feel a little better, even just for a moment. Whether it be finding comfort from your friends, taking some alone time, a trip to the spa, or even just browsing through Instagram for these kinds of motivational words, remember that what you're going through is not permanent. Just like the skies, no matter how dim it gets, the sun will always peek through in the end.
