If you were among the many people who just weren’t feeling 2016, now is a great time to set your hopes high for a better, brighter year. And while you may have big plans to make 2017 amazing, you can also make positive changes on a smaller scale.

Take Instagram, for example. Each day millions of photos are shared, and if you check your insta as much as we do, the kind of content you see there can really impact your daily mood. Here are 10 accounts guaranteed to spruce up your feed and set the tone for a great year.
