We all do it. We scroll through our feeds while in line at Starbucks – or waiting for our appointment. And much of our society is attributing the decay of our culture and mindsets to social media. But I don’t think that needs to be true. Social media can be uplifting, inspiring and beneficial – and there are inspiring Instagram accounts to follow that serve positive purposes. Whether they’re inspiring us to be healthy, to pursue our dreams, to get our stuff in order, to organize and declutter. It’s not all about vacationing in the South of France or kicking back in First Class selfies.

Who doesn’t love some Brene Brown?
Dr. Mona Vand embraces all that is health, wellness and beauty. I liken her to Lauryn Evarts in that she is the girl’s girl who does everything to empower other women. She’s a rad Iranian American who rocks all that is brains, beauty, business and brawn.
She is iconic, compelling, aspirational, inspirational. She needs no further explanation. I just need a daily dose of MO to get me started in the mornings — and I’m good.
