Is your life in order right now? Because if not, maybe YouTube can help.
Are you doubting me right now? Let me explain. I’ve discovered that a few rad YouTubers really put me in the mood to do laundry, write that long blog post I’ve been putting off, or save more money to travel. They make me want to get up and do things… after I’m done laying on my bed watching their videos of course.
It’s not about wishing I had the life they have (though I can certainly get in that mindset if I’m not careful) but more about using their lifestyle tips as inspiration for making my own ideal lifestyle that fits my needs and desires.
Here are six of my favorite YouTubers that help me get my life in order when I’m in a slump.
Rachel Talbott is one of my favorite YouTubers (and one of the few I watch regularly anymore.) She does videos on cleaning, organizing, skincare, etc. I adore her organization and cleaning videos and it makes me feel like a mom. (She is actually a mom by the way.) But honestly when I’m done watching her videos, I feel inspired to clean, cook, and pamper myself a spa day. She’s my go-to when I want to get inspired to “adult.”
Marissa Lace has transitioned into a self-care YouTuber this year and I’m loving it. She is all about self-love and started “Year of You” this year – the year where you start putting your needs and desires first. My favorite videos of hers are vegan grocery hauls, planning videos, monthly favorites, and vlogs. You can feel how productive she is through her vlogs and it makes you feel amped enough to have an equally productive day yourself.
I was introduced to cleaning videos through VasseurBeauty and I never in a million years would’ve thought that I would love that kind of video. But maybe that’s what happens when you hit your mid-twenties. She makes DIY cleaning solutions and takes you through her process for organizing and cleaning. I find it super helpful as someone who is not naturally a neat person. And if you’ve peaking at the screenshot above, you can see that she’s pregnant. So some recent videos have been about that. Any moms out there will enjoy those videos as well.
I adore Anna’s lifestyle videos. She cooks a lot in her vlogs, which is always fun to watch and get ideas from. I don’t cook, but she makes me want to. She is super kind and lovely to watch. Routine videos are very popular right now but Anna’s routine videos are one of my favorites to watch. If you love lifestyle YouTubers and you haven’t checked her out, you’ll love her videos.
Mimi Ikonn is a entrepreneur, a new mom, and she lives an extraordinary life. She is one of my role models when it comes to setting up an ideal business/work life balance. She has a clear vision and executes it well with her husband. If you have a business or want to start one, Mimi and her husband Alex are ones you definitely need to follow.
I feel like I watched Lauren Elizabeth grow up on YouTube. She’s recently started posting more adult-like videos like how to put together a cheese platter. She’s an actress and I’d say her audience is mainly teens. But as a twenty-five year old, I find her lifestyle to be more of someone years older than she is. She seems to care a lot about being her best self and it rubs off on you.
Living in New York City with her photographer boyfriend, Tess Christine shows us how to dress well and live well. Not only is her style always on point, but her positivity and confidence make you feel like tackling the world. She travels a lot and vlogs while she does. If you’re into fashion and lifestyle videos, she does a great job with giving advice on the subject.
I hope you leave this feeling inspired yourself. Let us know if you check any of them out and we always welcome more YouTube inspiration in our lives.
