Instagram has become the Google of this generation, from politics to diet advice you can pretty much find everything you could possibly want to know on Instagram. Most of us start our day scrolling through tens of hundreds of pictures, which tends to inspire the things we think about throughout the day. So, how about instead of following 100 foodie Instagram accounts, you follow these 8 Instagram accounts to help you get into the habit of taking care of yourself and your wellbeing.

Body Posi Panda
Nothing screams self-care like loving and accepting the body you were born in
When you stop making resolutions to shrink yourself smaller and smaller each year and choose to become MORE instead of less. ? More gentle with yourself. ? More fierce in your beliefs, and more unafraid of letting your voice grow. ? More open to healing from the things that hurt you in the past. ? More unapologetically you. ? And more accepting of HOWEVER that might look on the outside. Who else wants to spend this year thriving and living instead of starving and shrinking? Because we all deserve to become who we were supposed to be, before we were convinced that we needed to become less and less. Here’s to being more. ?????

The Champagne Diet
Your go-to account for empowerment, self-love a whole lot of girl-boss vibes.
Things that happen when I speak my truth: I feel incredibly empowered. I feel confident. I feel energized. I feel inspired. I feel unstoppable. I gain followers. I lose followers. There is only one “negative” on that list, and I’m using quotes because truthfully, I don’t want anyone following me who isn’t fired up about what I have to say. Stop asking yourself “Will they like me?” and start asking yourself “DO I LIKE ME?” If you are 100% aligned with yourself, algorithms, followers, likes, gossip, unfollowers – none of it fucking matters. I believe in your honesty! You should too. ???????

When I was in college, I went through a period of drinking green tea every single morning without fail ? Somehow I slipped out of the habit when I started working 9-5 and went straight for coffee instead (probably for my own sanity, really). Lately, I’ve been making the effort to drink green tea first thing before I reach for the coffee and it’s become a ritual in my life again. What little habits do you do each day (or WANT to start doing)? ??
Recipes For Self Love
Recipes for self-love shares illustrations with beautiful pastel colors and strong messages.
We pick up a lot of toxic habits from heteronormativity, for example the idea that jealousy is an indication of love or conflict is a sign of passion. The media perpetuates these conceptions and they’re pretty dangerous. . . #recipesforselflove #love #positivity #bodypositive #allbodiesaregoodbodies #selflove #selfcare #loveyourself #smashthepatriarchy #youareperfect #fuckthepatriarchy #lifestyle #effyourbeautystandards #feminism #femme #intersectionalfeminist #feminsta #feminist #zine #illustration #digital #drawing #adobe #design #graphic #art #women #yourself
Your daily dose of self-care and self-love reminders! Dana keeps it very real and relatable.
You deserve love from yourself, too. • It’s funny, I can listen to someone else’s pain and trauma for hours with an empathetic and understanding ear, but when it comes to loving and listening to myself that same way? It feels nearly impossible. • When I’m upset, I usually get ashamed of myself and tell my emotions to shut up. I tell myself I should “know better” than to have these thoughts because society put them in my head, not me. I end up silencing myself; burying my thoughts even further inside where I’m sure they’ll come out in a more destructive way at some other time in my life. • But would I do this to someone else? No. Would I tell someone their thoughts are simply made up? That their pain isn’t real before truly listening to them with no judgement? Absolutely not! So why do I do this to myself? Why am I not my own safe space? • I’m slowly learning that giving myself the same love I give to others won’t happen overnight, but I’m working on it. And day by day I’ve been taking more and more moments to stop, place my hand over my heart, and listen…to me. So to keep practicing what I preach, tonight I want to say this: “Dana, I know you’ve been dealing with a lot of health issues lately. And I’m so fucking sorry your broken toe isn’t fully healed. I know it’s made it so you haven’t been able to workout for a month and that’s been triggering ED thoughts. I hear you and it fucking sucks. But I’m so proud of you for taking this time to work on yourself, to read, to watch silly stuff on Netflix, and just be! I’m so damn proud of how far you’ve come. And you know what? Sometimes shit just sucks and that’s ok too. We’ve got this bb.” • If you feel safe enough, I’d like to invite you to say something loving to YOURSELF in the comments below. Listen, and say the words you’ve needed to hear ? ??? • #DoTheHotpants
