Here at Happier we love all things positive and social media. After all, we did create the happiest social media platform ever!
But when we’re not posting happy moments on Happier, we love the beauty and simplicity of Instagram. Here are our 10 favorite happy Instagram feeds to follow to feed your inner creative, expressive, and mindful self:
1. For inspirational quotes you’ll want to share, post, pin and tweet
The name says it all. You won't find a happier, more positive account in your feed. If perfect quotes paired with stunning photography and impeccable typography is what you’re after, this will become your happy place.
2) For a dose of reality (in the most awesome way possible)
Real people, real obstacles, and real triumph. The gritty photography and superb storytelling makes this account downright addictive and truly inspirational.
3) For empowerment through giving: micro-loans
Kiva connects millions of people around the world through $25 microloans. That $25 you're going to waste on domed coffee drinks this week could mean the world to someone else, and this feed will inspire you to redirect your money so it can do some true good.
4) For your daily dose of cute
We can’t even get one pup to pose for a picture, let alone three! But these best friends love to explore and live life together and the cutest possible photo ops ensue. Seriously, you’ll die. Just follow them already.
5) For fitness inspiration
The strong women throughout their feed will make you want to get off your butt and do something amazing, stat!
6) For mental space and mindfulness
Hands down, the world’s most influential human being on all things meditation and mindfulness. Oh, and did you know we got the chance to meet him IRL? Total #fangirl moment if ever there was one.
7) For healthy eating inspiration
A perfect combo of drool-inducing food pics and “don’t take yourself, or your food, too seriously” quotes leaves us wanting -- no, demanding! -- to eat healthier every day.
8) For the most wonderfully colorful pics, guaranteed to make you smile
It’s like a party wrapped in a pinboard paired with a cocktail of confetti and interior design. Yes, it’s that good.
9) For real-life yoga inspiration
Swoon-worthy locales provide the backdrop for simple-yoga-meets-street-style duds. And the best part: for every item sold they donate a meal to a person in need. That’s definitely something we can get behind.
10) For moms who want to focus on the positive
