Some days are harder than others, and there is no shame in needing some extra motivation to help you get through them. In their own unique styles, the following Instagram accounts made it their job to help pick you up when you are down.
1. Color Me Happii
For the prettiest of motivation and inspiration, Kaitlyn of Color Me Happii has got you covered.
Her Instagram page is soft and comforting, all pastel colors and cute illustrations inviting you in with a warm welcome. She posts everything to ensure a little happiness comes your way, from self-care checklists and gentle encouragements to healthy methods for dealing with negative emotions.
If you can’t get enough of her soothing style, Kaitlyn also operates a Color Me Happii blog, where you can find even more positivity and encouragement, along with self-help ideas and inspiring real-life stories.
2. The Happy Newspaper
Speaking of real-life stories, Emily Coxhead of The Happy Newspaper thought that typical newspapers were too sad and terrifying. So, she created her own source of solely happy and positive news from around the globe, complete with colorful and quirky graphics. You can purchase a copy of The Happy Newspaper, published quarterly on their website.
The Happy Newspaper Instagram account gives you a taste of the completed physical paper, but it is still just as savory. Updated almost daily, the fun and sweet facts and articles they share will surely restore your faith in humanity, and the uplifting stories of “everyday heroes” will motivate you to be just as humanitarian as them.
3. Ben Lionel Scott
Ben Lionel Scott posts daily motivational videos that fit perfectly for someone looking to get fit themselves. He masterfully edits impressive clips of athletes training together with bombastic music and audio of words of wisdom from recognizable people who have their lives put together.
Besides videos, Scott’s Instagram account provides energizing quotes and sayings to train your brain just as you would a muscle to believe that you are capable of doing great things; that you can do what you set out to do.
4. The Good Quote
There is no wonder why The Good Quote has over 18 million followers. Multiple times a day, positive and motivational quotes, proverbs, and poetry that promote wellbeing and self-development are posted.
But founder Meggan Roxanne’s good vibes stretch beyond Instagram with The Good Store, where her company sells necklaces, t-shirts, sweaters, hats, and even pencils so customers are “able to take their affirmations with them.”
5. Gary Vaynerchuk
The best entrepreneurial advice and motivation comes from the immensely successful entrepreneur himself, Gary Vaynerchuk. Chairman of VaynerX and CEO of VaynerMedia, he is constantly posting tips and guidance on how to use social media to your advantage, how to stop from getting in your own way, and reminders that happiness is just as important as salary.
The lives and Instagram accounts of founder Kelli and her Happsters Squad revolve around the “4 G’s of Happiness”(gratitude, growth, giving, and gathering). Sweet affirmations and happiness advice are boldly printed on pleasant pink backgrounds, and if that is not enough to make you smile, she posts puppies on Fridays!
Follow one account or follow them all – whatever you need to successfully motivate you to be the best you can be.
