60 Lazy Instagram Captions If You're So Tired Of Coming Up With Your Own


The social media struggle is so real. When you take our mornings extra slow, you find yourself looking at our screens for probably too long. We wonder when the best time to post that picture from last night would be, and give all of our besties a like on their lovely shots. It's not really a competition, but landing those new followers can feel so good — and our profiles would probably be so fire if you weren't so lazy. Sometimes Instagram just isn't our priority, and these lazy Instagram captions are tried and true for all sorts of situations (like keeping you from having to come up with your own). Phew!

You might spend hours laying in bed scrolling through all your feeds sometimes but never find yourself posting anything to your profile because it's low-key a lot of work. First, there's taking the photo and making sure you landed just the right pose. Then there's finding the right filter and figuring out any editing apps that you have to use if you want to upgrade your 'Gram. And then, finally, there's coming up with a caption.

When you're really struggling, you start polling all your friends and asking them for their best puns. You pull up all of our favorite songs on Spotify and look for the lyrics that really speak to your soul. Sometimes, you just settle for a single emoji.

You love Instagram for so many reasons. For one, it can be the best distraction from all of our responsibilities, and really helps you get some much-needed creative inspiration for content when you find yourself totally stuck. I love being part of a community of creators, and following bloggers and photographers who are doing something totally different with their work. But, some days, it's important to not put all of your focus on your feeds and be a little lazy. These 60 captions will land you the likes, and leave you feeling stress-free.
