What is Self Improvement?

For some, it's a cliche, but self-help has gone through an evolution. Personal development builds new skills in health, wellness, mental health, and a host of other areas designed to help you live your absolute best life. There are many skills involved in personal growth. Some are for your own edification, and some allow you to help others, but all of them give you new skills for resilience and navigating through life. You can always learn new skills to add to your toolkit for living through life and maintaining your health and well-being.

Learn about Self Improvement

While some skills are self-explanatory, there are always things you can learn based on the latest research into our minds, bodies, and social lives. Science has come a long way in figuring out how to improve wellbeing, but sometimes we may need more training than just experience. For example, those navigating through grief could be told just to move-on without knowing how to do that. Someone who wants to build good habits may be trying to work with research and disproven myths from generations ago. Self-awareness helps you become a better person, but what does self-awareness even mean? All these things may require more than just a casual google search.
