Instagram: where a photo and a filter can motivate you, inspire you, or just make you jealous. With the high volume of artsy brunch shots and beautiful skylines, Instagram has quickly become a favorite in the social media world and a direct cause of FOMO (fear of missing out). These accounts will definitely motivate and inspire, so give one — or all — of them a follow and start seeing happier and healthier days, at least on to your smartphone’s screen.
