No matter what’s going on in the world, we know we can turn to our favorite Chicago bloggers to put a smile on our faces.
Since we’re all spending more time than ever on our screens, scrolling the day away, who and what we see while we spend time online can have a serious impact on our mood, so making sure you’re following the right people online is a key step to happiness and zen. Luckily, the world is full of people who will bring a smile to your face, even if it’s from the other side of a smartphone screen, and many of them are right here in Chicago.
These are the Chicago bloggers we follow when we need a pick-me-up or an extra dose of inspiration in these never ending days…
