The holidays can be stressful; seeing family, buying presents, and the pressure of (showing) a full social calendar can be overwhelming. It can also be a time of intense retrospection; with the year ending it's tempting to look back and reminisce.  

Luckily, we have the internet so you don't have to do any of it alone.  Scroll down for five Instagram accounts to follow for holiday mental clarity and support instead of holiday FOMO.
