Ten Instagram Accounts That Will Boost Your Happiness

Sometimes you just need to zone out with your phone out. Whether it’s during lunch, between classes, or when you’re trying to decompress after a long day, the magical little computer you carry in your pocket can provide the perfect opportunity to chill. However, some things you do on your phone can actually stress you out and make you feel worse. Whether it’s comparing yourself to your seemingly perfect friends on Facebook, or dealing with hostile people on Twitter, sometimes it’s too much. However, there’s one wonderful app where it’s easy to indulge in cute pics of your cousin’s dog or dreamily gaze at cake decorating videos, and that Happy Place is Instagram. Of course, not all Insta accounts are steady sources of joy, but these 10 accounts will give you an unexpected rush of delight every time you scroll past them.
