With the self-care hype in full bloom, we figured you might want some inspiration from Instagram accounts that will ignite your love for self-care. Spending time with yourself reading a book or taking a bath are some lovely examples of things we enjoy but sometimes we forget to take the time for all that. We put our careers or family first and we forget to take the time to love and cherish ourselves. Sometimes we need a little extra inspiration to pick up the self-care pace.
Below is a list of Instagrams that I find relatable and inspirational for encouraging us all to a little more self-care and love into your daily routines and lifestyles.
I randomly stumbled across Annah Todd’s Instagram page and fell in love with the serenity I felt while browsing through her feed. She makes you feel inspired to take that much needed vacation, enjoy the little things, and longing to head straight for the ocean. This part in her bio describes her theme perfectly: skiing, fashion, architecture, sailing, horses. That’s pretty much what you can expect from her feed and I dig it.
This is an obvious one, but Lauren Conrad exudes a lifestyle of self-care. She posts photos of drinks, food, dogs, and followers. All the things that make you feel good after a hard day at work. We could all use her as some inspiration to put a little extra care into our evening routines.
I have always felt a strong connection to the ocean. Just being near it eases my anxiety and puts me in a place of calm. I have always admired how it doesn’t take any shape or form, it just…flows 🌊 Although I don’t live near the ocean, I am always grateful when I visit places that are and usually take a few quiet, meditative moments to breathe, center my thoughts and take it all in. Meditation looks different for everyone, and is so much more than sitting cross-legged on a pillow. Today I’m sharing 5 tips for beginning a meditation practice that works for you, even if you think meditation is too “woo-woo.” 😉 ✨Post is linked in my profile.
I discovered Les on one of my favorite Twitter chats and reached out to her immediately, because I knew I needed to collaborate with her. She’s amazing and she has an Instagram feed that makes me want to self-care every minute of the day. It’s a delight. She is relatable, but still inspirational and that’s what I love most in an Instagram feed.
I am wild about Zie. She’s a lovely person and her feed is all about self-care. Her Instagram is my all-time favorite to look at daily. Always beautiful and delightful. I love the realness that she radiates. I also love her on Snapchat. And her blog. And just everything she does.
I adore The Everygirl, of which Danielle Moss cofounded, and so it’s no surprise that she makes this list of inspiring Instagrams for self-care. (The Everygirl is also on our list of best mindfulness blogs to follow.) Her feed reminds you to take breaks and truly enjoy life. Take that vacation already, won’t you?
I talk about her all the time, but I had to mention my friend Catherine in this department. She’s a self-care queen and her Instagram exudes serenity and simplicity. She gives great book recommendations, shares what she’s been exploring, etc. You’ll feel an instant calmness looking at her feed, guaranteed.
Life gets crazy, things get hectic, and patience is tested, but that’s what makes the good days SO good, right? When we first started dating, movie dates were a big thing for us. (We saw Garden State on our first date together! 💕🙌🏼) It’s so important to remember those days and make time together for things like that, no matter how busy things may get.

This beautiful couple show photos of travel, fashion, and their beautiful lifestyle. Besides the obvious inspiration of their beautiful life that they document through photos, I love the sweetness and positivity behind the feed.
If you’re not already familiar with the ever-so-popular Estee Lalonde, she’s a very successful lifestyle YouTuber living in London. I’m not convinced that anyone does self-care better than Estée. Her feed is full of self-care goals and inspiration. What makes her different, to me at least, is that she’s relatable while being successful. She’s a fun one to follow on all accounts.
The other YouTuber who comes to mind when I think of self-care is Anna of Vivianna Does Makeup on YouTube. She’s all about cooking, mindfulness, beauty, and living a balanced lifestyle. She’s one of the most inspiring people I can think of on the Internet and lives the closest to the lifestyle I’d actually desire to live. So, she’s definitely one for daily self-care Inspiration on Instagram (and everywhere else.)
I hope you enjoyed this list. Feel free to add to it in the comments below! We’re always looking for new self-care inspiration.
