It’s the self-care solar system ☺️ Planets were an idea from a follower so thank you so much!!! I’m actually going to try to do all of these today (besides work boundaries because I do that consistently during the week!).

Reminiscent of childhood storybooks, this account is filled with daily affirmations and mental health reminders so that you can—as its username suggests—put self-care in the spotlight.

6. @haveanicedayy_

Steffi Lynn is an NYC-based graphic designer who creates the cutest (the CUTEST!) illustrations that anyone would fall in love with. Think of her posts as a much-needed pop of color to remind you to slow down in the middle of an impossible workday.

7. @bumblebizz

Who would’ve thought that a dating app could help you sort out an overworked, overtired brain? Bumble’s business-oriented IG account isn’t *actually* about business—their feed is filled with gentle encouragement, sweet self-love reminders, and practical tips that truly work.

A post shared by The Just Girl Project Official (@justgirlproject) on

This account was made to inspire, as their bio reads—and the mix of pastels and neons may be fun to look at, but all their posts serve either A) soft reminders we need to hear, or B) hard truths we also need to hear. Either way, like a plate of steamed broccoli, it’s all for our own good.

9. @thefabstory

This is the official account of the Fabulous app, a self-care app made to help you “build better habits and achieve your goals.” It’s only natural that their IG feed follows suit—all posts are filled with science-backed tidbits, as well as practical tips for reclaiming your peace.

10. @sophia.joan.short

Sophia describes herself as “a human writing things to brighten your day.” She scribbles on everyday things, like tiled brick walls, mirrors, fruits, and even her own leg, to remind people that their work doesn’t define their worth. Her posts are definitely a breath of fresh air in our current workaholic WFH culture.

All these posts may come off as meaninglessly cute at first glance, but they carry with them the very real reminder that, despite the pandemic, we’re all still human. We deserve to take breaks, love ourselves, and carve time out for the things that make us truly happy. Stay healthy inside and out, Belo Beauties!
