15 Instagram Accounts That You Can Follow To Encourage Positive Mental Health

By now, I'm sure y'all know that I'm very much into all things mental health, self-improvement, and self-care. I'm extremely passionate about taking care of my mind and encouraging others to do the same. I'm a firm believer that if you don't have your health you don't have anything, and to me, mental health is a huge part of that. It is so easy for us to ignore the little voice in our head telling us to slow down and take time for ourselves. However, I've recently come upon a very easy tool that has been proven to boost not only my mood but also my overall mental health and I knew that I had to share it.

Social media can definitely have its downsides — I'm not a stranger to that — so it's very important that when you can find the good in it to capitalize on it as much as possible. Recently, I've discovered a series of Instagram accounts that share a variety of important information on topics such as self-care, mental health, social issues, and so much more. Some of them are filled with just simple cheesy quotes, while others may share tips or strategies on how to deal with difficult challenges that you may be facing in your life.

As I began to follow more of these accounts and see them pop up on my feed more and more, I started to have such a better relationship with social media. What I love about it is how easily it snaps me out of the moment. I could be scrolling on my Instagram feed, feeling down, and comparing myself to others, and then I'll immediately see posts from one of these accounts and do a complete 180.

These accounts truly have been the perfect form of self-care during this stressful time, many of them that have given me strategies that I know I can implement in the future, and I hope they will do the same for you! I encourage you to scroll through each of the slides individually and take in all of the wise words of wisdom.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
