I love all things personal growth.
I enjoy discovering new ideas and finding a new way to look at things. I embrace the concept of learning as much as I can and growing as a person.
I love the thrill of reading a great book or blog post and implementing a new habit, process or improvement in my life. I like to experiment with new things to see what works for me and what doesn’t.
Pinterest has been a great asset in uncovering some great personal growth blogs. With this in mind, I thought I would share some of my favourite writers and blog posts with you. While you are here, make sure you come over and join me on Pinterest.
With each website, I have picked out a couple of my favorite posts for you to read. I hope you enjoy these 5 personal growth blogs to help you be calm, mindful and productive.
Wendy de Jong over at The Gratefulist specializes in kicking perfectionism to the kerb as well as embracing gratitude in your life. Wendy’s mission is helping creatives let go of their perfectionism and embrace their perfectly imperfect selves. As a creative who sometimes struggles with perfectionism I say ‘Yes please’ to that.
If being a perfectionist is holding you back, this blog can really help.
Don’t kid yourself into thinking some perfectionism is good. I know I used to think that way but I have changed my mind.
I do love a good quote or two!
Wow I can really relate to this list. I think I have used every one of these excuses at some point!
This post definitely hits a nerve with me right now. I recently bought a beautiful gratitude journal but haven’t started using it yet. A couple of difficult things have happened in my life recently and I keep telling myself I will start using the journal when I start to feel better and have more to be grateful for.
Of course the secret is that by using the journal regularly, I will start to feel better because I will be more grateful for what I already have.
Learn how these two go together.
It goes without saying, there’s an app for that. One of these might help you, so go for it.
Rachael writes about mindfulness. She’s all about mindfulness inspiration for a better life.
If you are new to the idea of mindfulness, this could be a great starting point.
Your first thought when it comes to mindfulness might have been – I don’t have time for all that! Well this post can help with that too.
There are some important lessons to be learned in these 6 mistakes though it seems to me the most important thing is to always be kind to yourself.
As someone who is struggling through a tough time at the moment, I’m keen to embrace more self-care in my life.
There has been a bit written lately about morning routines and I’m personally starting to experience their power and importance.
This one doesn’t have a lot to do with mindfulness but I thought it was a brilliant and lovely way for a blogger to connect with their audience and share a little bit about themselves. I think I might have to steal this idea and write a post like this myself!
Nadalie from It’s All You Boo writes primarily about goal setting and productivity (two topics very near and dear to my heart).
There are a lot of posts I love on this website, so picking favorites will be difficult but here goes.
I absolutely adore this guest post because it’s informative, lighthearted, fun and interesting and shows that personal growth doesn’t have to be so damn serious. Love it!
As a Game of Thrones fan I couldn’t resist this one. Very clever and a great way to turn binge watching television into work!
The more we are aware of our individual motivational killers the more we can limit them in our lives.
Yep, these 3 will get you every time – but only if you let them. Read how to be prepared for these obstacles and rise above them.
Less planning, more doing. Couldn’t agree more. Sometimes I can be guilty of getting stuck in the planning stage, so I need to focus on the 80% instead.
Catherine from The Blissful Mind is your guide to finding calm in the everyday.
There are some very important points in this post.
Personally, I have been struggling with a lot of anxious thoughts lately so I found this post very comforting.
I’ve been a scheduler for a long time now but it’s important to make sure we are scheduling the right things. Schedule in your priorities first, then put in the rest.
I think it’s fascinating how different things can bring out people’s control freak side. I think for me uncertainty at work (like not knowing if I will have a job next week or not) is definitely a control freak trigger.
Not only do I not read my mobile phone in bed but I don’t have the mobile in my bedroom at all. I find the light distracts me and affects my sleep. I sleep upstairs, the phone sleeps downstairs and it works just fine for me.
I’ve been reading Jennifer’s work over at Simply + Fiercely for a while now. Jennifer is passionate about helping women build lives they love through simple and intentional living.
It’s important for me to point out that sometimes we do put our lives on hold for something important and that’s okay as long as it’s totally our choice and not something forced upon us or worse something that we are not even aware that we are doing.
Love this one. Such a pure but powerful notion.
I can so relate to this one. As a blogger our to-do list is constantly growing, changing and evolving but mostly growing. It’s important to take the time to step back and re-evaluate what really needs to be done.
If you have ever thought of simplifying your life or becoming a minimalist, this is a scorcher of a post to get you started. Lots of great stuff in here.
Advice for when our reality doesn’t match our expectations (which let’s be truthful, can sometimes be often).
If this is your first time here at Write Change Grow, I thought I should include some of my own posts as well –
While I was compiling this list, I also stumbled across a range of exciting personal growth podcasts, so my plan is to go off, do some research and report back what I find in a separate post.
Don’t forget to come over and join me on Pinterest.
