Instagram is an amazing source of happy and inspiring ideas. Although too much scrolling online can be harmful, the time you do spend on Instagram can be inspired and beneficial in many ways.

How to do an Instagram detox

To get a happy, inspirational Instagram feed, the first thing to do is unfollow anything or anyone that does not make you feel good. Call this an “Instagram detox.”

It may be tricky if you follow people you know personally that don’t inspire good feelings. So for those accounts, you’ll have to decide what to do for each situation.

I follow very few people I actually know, other than a few close friends. That works for me because I don’t want my Instagram feed to look like my Facebook feed.

I also don’t post anything personal. Just blog stuff and art prints. (I have 2 separate accounts. I’m slacking on posting for both!) I actually deleted my Insta for a while. And then created these new accounts recently.

In retrospect, I’m glad I started fresh with new Instagram accounts. Doing so allowed me to more mindfully curate my Instagram feed. Even though I lost followers. Starting fresh with a new Instagram may be something for you to consider, depending on how you feel about losing followers or your own content. (Deleting an Instagram account is forever.)

At any rate, the point is that my goal for Instagram is a totally happy and inspiring Instagram feed I can enjoy daily. Happy content only! I want to smile and feel good when I open the app. So that’s why I’m sharing my favorite happy hashtags with you!

What to unfollow or remove from your Instagram feed

  • Hashtags from old interests or hobbies you don’t engage with or enjoy anymore.
  • Interesting hashtags that unfortunately lead to negative content.
  • Hashtags or people that lead to you comparing yourself, feeling insecure, anxious, or negative in any way.
  • News and politics.
  • Accounts you followed because they follow you, but you don’t necessarily enjoy their content.

Do away with following anything that leads to any bad feelings whatsoever. Unfollow anything that feels “meh.” This you can do gradually if that’s easier. Life is too short! Get news and other such information elsewhere and let your Instagram be a happy haven.

Popular hashtags for Instagram versus happy hashtags

If you’re looking for popular hashtags, there are many articles and guides about this topic.

Popular hashtags don’t always help you create an inspired Instagram feed for your own enjoyment. After all, they can be too broad. Or irrelevant to what you enjoy. Think #beautiful or #love. Although, these types of hashtags can help you grow your own followers.

If you are trying to grow your Instagram account in one of the niches listed below, you may want to consider using some of the more specific hashtags below. Using specific, even if less popular hashtags, is a way to gain dedicated followers who truly enjoy your content. Just some food for thought.

Happy hashtags, in contrast to popular hashtags, are hashtags you can follow to create an Instagram feed that inspires you daily. These hashtags are ones to follow for your own personal enjoyment. They don’t necessarily affect who follows you. But you may make some personal connections online by following niche hashtags and engaging with the content.

Happy hashtags are personal and subjective

Clearly, happy hashtags are completely subjective. The hashtags I’m sharing today may or may not excite you. But I enjoy them all. And I know many reading will, too! Additionally, they may inspire new happy hashtag ideas for you.

Filling your mind with positivity and inspiration daily is so important. Positive thoughts create good feelings. Good feelings manifest happiness and more good feelings. And Instagram is a perfect tool for creating happy thoughts.

You can also get so many great creative ideas from Instagram!
