Make your daily social media scrolling habit more productive.

Implementing positive changes into your life is a good idea at any time, but it can often feel a little overwhelming in the early stages of the year. Everywhere you look there is pressure to make big changes, start a crazy diet, or overhaul the whole way you approach your life.

Making lots of big changes to your lifestyle at once is unrealistic, and can make you feel defeated before you’ve even started. Altering every aspect of your life on January 1st is never going to work - it takes time to change habits and it’s much more sustainable if you start with small steps.

Alter Your Daily Social Media Habit

After so many months of working from home, the stress of the past year and a break for the holidays, many of us are feeling a little sluggish and want to up our productivity levels. An easy and sustainable way to bring more productivity into your personal and professional life is to take something you already do daily and alter it to benefit your goals.

For example, your daily social media habit. Most of us spend some time every day scrolling through our social feeds, so why not add more value and purpose to these moments of your day by following these inspirational accounts on Instagram who will make you feel empowered to tackle your tasks!

Here are some of our favourite Instagram accounts to help you level up your productivity and create intention and purpose throughout your day!
