Scrolling through social media has become a daily habit for most of us, from the second we wake up to moments before closing our eyes at the end of the day. Especially when we’re feeling bored, depressed or unmotivated, we can’t help but turn to it and start scrolling for hours on end.
Social media can seem like a toxic place, especially for those who are struggling with their mental health. This Mental Health Awareness week, to help ward off those feelings when we inevitably turn to Instagram, we have created a list of positive and inspirational accounts to follow. These accounts offer the perfect pick-me-ups, relatable words of wisdom, or some much-needed motivation.
Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety or OCD tendencies, take a look at these accounts and perhaps try to start following a few to help bring handy reminders and coping mechanisms into your daily Instagram feed.
Lucy's IG bio states 'just figuring it out' and I think we can all relate to this because in some way we're all trying to figure it out. With the current global situation I think everyone is trying to figure out their new 'normal', adjusting to different routines, generally figuring out how they feel each day and then how to cope with their emotions.
If you start following Lucy Litman then she will definitely be adding a whole lot of colour and inspiration to your Instagram feed! Her posts are relatable and motivational quotes using every colour imaginable.
