The social media struggle is so real. When you take your mornings extra slow, you find yourself looking at your screen for probably too long. When you want to post a selfie, you text your besties over and over again, asking when is the best time to post, what filter — if any — you should apply, and what emojis you should use in your caption. The process is exhausting, which is why you need some lazy Instagram captions that are tried and true for all sorts of situations.

From getting iced matcha lattes with your bestie, to taking a cute selfie in your bathroom mirror, and going on an epic adventure with your siblings, these captions cover all the bases. They don’t leave you high and dry, and wondering to yourself, “Should I even post this?” Let’s be honest: After looking at a potential post for a while, you may start to have doubts and you might begin to compare your feed to others’. Having a high-quality Instagram caption at all times helps you ditch those thoughts, and remember that social media is whatever you want it to be.

If you want it to be a collection of photo dumps from various weekends, so be it. If you want your feed to be filled with TikTok dance challenges, #OOTD posts, exciting meals you’ve made, or apartment progress pics, go for it. These “lazy” Instagram captions will have your back every step of the way, so you don’t have to worry about finding the perfect words and filter.
