Thanks to the golden age of YouTube, we can watch virtually any channel and immediately feel like we’re spending some one-on-one time with the person on the other end of the screen. We certainly love YouTube for providing hilarious comedy show clips and endless music videos, but when it comes to getting in our dose of inspiration, the platform doesn’t disappoint either. Since most of us are on the site at least a few times a day anyway, why not make the most of your productive procrastination and give these inspirational vloggers a go as they dish on everything from happiness to finding your artistic style.
