On-Demand Resources to Learn & Grow while Prioritzing Your Health
Regardless of whether we’re working full time, part time, not at all, or somewhere in between, continuous learning can support your cognitive function, fuel motivation, and improve your mental wellbeing.
The concept of personal growth has transformed from self-help books and over-the-top motivational seminars to a more holistic, realistic approach to personal growth and well-being. The journey towards self-improvement can be incredibly nuanced for those with chronic illness.
Podcasts are great for when you can only manage to listen, videos and webinars when you can stay vertical for short periods, and online courses to take at your own pace. So whether you need a boost of inspiration or just want some background noise while you do the dishes, commute, or recuperate, we’ve got you covered. The important thing is to keep learning at your own pace to spark inspiration, promote motivation, and ultimately fuel your passion, whatever form that may be.
Get Clear on Your Intentions
When you set intentions, you tell your mind what to focus on, which helps keep your thoughts and actions aligned with your goals.
Tips to set intentions:
- Let go of the how and focus on the what and why – the details will work themselves out
- Make them positive – what do want to happen vs. what you don’t
- Get as specific as possible. The subconscious mind thrives on precision; it needs to know exactly what you want.
