More and more often we find ourselves hunched over our screens, inhaling content and exhaling time.
Of course you don't want to be the person who is 'always on their phone' but it can be a nice way to switch off and unwind at the end of the day, it's no different to watching TV only it's curated by you.
Instagram, if refined to suit your interests can be a potpourri of inspiration and ideas.
Unfollow the garbage and make your feed count.
Here are a few accounts I've been enjoying lately.
