7 Best Instagram Accounts for Self-Care Inspiration

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 discovered Lestraundra on one of my favorite Twitter chats back in the day 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.

My friend Catherine is a mindset coach that talks a lot about how to take care of yourself. 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.

When I was working 9-5 at my old non-profit job, I took a risk and decided to go to graduate school for a program that didn’t relate to my job at all: Health & Wellness Coaching. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It also didn’t make sense based on who I THOUGHT I was. My friends and family probably thought it was a weird choice too. I always imagined life coaches as these larger-than-life personalities, and I’m an introvert who listens more than I speak (turns out listening is the #1 skill you need as a coach). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The thing is that you don’t have to stay the same way you’ve always been. The same way you’ve always been is most likely not your fullest potential. Doing the unexpected can help you become more truly yourself than you ever were. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You don’t have to fit into a mold. You can be quiet and a leader. You can be sensitive and firm. You can be professional and silly. There are no rules. If you have an idea for something that seems out of character, try it anyway. Follow what feels right. If I can do it, I promise you can too 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by @victorialemosphotography

@selfcareisforeveryone

Self-Care Is For Everyone is “a space that honors the importance of choosing self-care over self-harm.”

@littlewanderingsoul

Bri Vieira’s profile reads “tiny, gay + trying to find my way.” Her posts are about solo travel, mental health, and body/acne. Her captions are so raw and filled with thought-provoking messages that we need to have more conversations around, like loneliness, seeking attention, and anxiety.

let’s talk about loneliness 🙇🏻‍♀️ . if you’ve ever felt lonely, know that you’re not alone. the brain actually reacts to the experience of loneliness in a chemical way. the chemical response is a stress one. and one that can wreak havoc on our emotional wellbeing + self-esteem. when i say loneliness i don’t mean physically being alone or a lack of number of people around you – someone can have tons of friends or a partner + still feel lonely. what i mean is the feeling of true intimacy w/ someone (platonic or non-platonic). feelings of relatedness are much more about the quality of your relationships than the quantity. lately, i have been feeling this. i’ve been talking to people, checking in, etc., but there’s been a lack of intimacy. for me, it’s important to have intimacy w/ the people in my life beyond partners in order to feel fulfilled. intimacy meaning vulnerability, shared experiences, trust, loyalty, respect + love. the feelings of loneliness have dissipated for me a little bit over the past week and i think here’s why: . 🐶 doggos. being around dogs lately have given me companionship, love, loyalty, that have really lifted my mood and sense of purpose. . 👯‍♀️ friends. this one may seem obvious but i’ve connected with friends again and helped them through problems. they have been vulnerable with me and i have been vulnerable back, allowing me to feel a deeper connection which is something i’ve been yearning for and didn’t even realize it. . 🗓 planning time with people. knowing i have things to look forward to – like visiting my grandparents in florida, seeing my dad who spontaneously booked a trip to florida, too, and meeting new people this week (like lots of YOU ALL!!) makes me so excited and feel connected. . ✨ taking time to myself. this might sound contradictory, but i actually feel less lonely when i intentionally take time to myself and allow myself to be mindful of my thoughts instead of having them take over. at the end of the day, we are never alone no matter how lonely we feel. we just need to find ways to get back to connecting with quality people in a way that matters to us individually. how do you find ways to reconnect when lonely?

Doin my dharma like a mofo 💃🏽. I always thought that there were certain people who lived their dreams.. and I wasn’t one of them. I thought you had to be born with Justin Beiber singing talents to have a voice. Until I began to awaken.⁠⠀⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁠⠀ First through yoga, my consciousness began to expand.⁠⠀⁠⠀ Which led me to blogging (I started Eat Feel Fresh over 10 years ago!)⁠📚⠀⁠⠀ Which led to me health problems..⁠⠀⁠⠀ Which led me to studying and teaching Ayurveda (later writing 3 books on the subject)..⁠⠀⁠⠀ Which led me to launching @highestselfpodcast because I craved to talk about more then just health..⁠🎙⠀⁠⠀ Which led me to understanding my #dharma soul’s purpose.. (which my next book #DiscoverYourDharma is about)⁠⠀⁠⠀ Which led me to realizing the importance of community and creating @rosegoldgoddesses⁠⠀⁠⠀ and SOUL many realizations in between.⁠🌟⠀⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁠⠀ We often wait for our purpose to hit us. But it’s taking those steps.⁠⠀⁠⠀ Following the path of excitement.⁠⠀⁠⠀ Signing up for a program you feel like you can’t afford but know will change the game for you.⁠⠀⁠⠀ Writing your first draft⁠⠀⁠⠀ Sending that email⁠⠀⁠⠀ Saying yes⁠⠀⁠⠀ Saying no⁠⠀⁠⠀ Realizing it’s all connected⁠⠀⁠⠀ As long as you follow your truth⁠⠀⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁠⠀ I am SOUL excited to be working with a hand-full of you divine goddesses deeply this year in my #TogetherWeEmpress Mastermind, co-facilitated by Empresses @sarahpendrick and @jennaphillipsballard –> link in bio to learn more⁠⠀⁠⠀ ⁠⠀⁠⠀ 💕I’d love to know.. what is one step you’ve taken that has helped you find clarity towards your dharma?
