I spend way more of my downtime falling in (but loving) Instagram black holes than I’d care to admit. I click on one person’s feed which leads to another and then a fun hashtag and the next thing I know…it’s midnight. As much as I’m always resolving to limit my screen time every day, it’s just not going to happen in the foreseeable future. So I found a way to combine my unhealthy vices with my healthy ones.
Starting this week, we’re going to launch a series of new columns that showcase the talent, inspiring projects, interiors and moments from our creative community– all through hashtags (#). We’ll pick a theme, an idea or a challenge and collect entries via hashtag, the best of which will be showcased on Design*Sponge. I find the vast majority of my inspiration on Instagram right now, so I thought it would be fun to keep that idea (purely visual inspiration) going on the site in a way that highlights the talent outside of the blog world.
This week’s challenge is all about HEALTHY STARTS. Tell us yours by January 22nd and we’ll showcase our favorites here that Friday. Here’s how to enter:
- Take a photo of what you’re doing to start the new year in a healthy way
- Upload it to Instagram (#DSHealthyStart) OR Post it to Twitter (#DSHealthyStart) OR email it to us here (Subject line: #DSHealthyStart)
Our team healthy starts are above and below. Here’s hoping we can all stick to them…at least a little bit. xo, grace
Amy’s #DSHealthyStart: More yoga! I braved freezing cold to go yesterday, and I’m never sorry when I do. I feel the best when I make an effort to go four times per week.
