Smug wellness Instagram accounts might be aspirational, but they don’t necessarily put us in a great mood, or make us feel thrilled about our own lives.
What we want to highlight here are the individuals and groups whose contribution to the online sphere brings a smile to our face and a sparkle to our eye, be it for humorous, aesthetic, or other miscellaneous reasons.
So when you next find yourself trying to put your mood right after waking up on the wrong side of the bed, or when you’re searching for some distraction on the daily commute, refer back to this list and let the good vibes flow through you.
