Personal Growth Resources & More

Hi! Welcome to the resources page of LIVE INSPIRED.

This page is a collection of resources that I’ve found helpful in my personal growth journey. I believe in living a well rounded life, and so my resources page covers all sorts of different areas of growth. Not all of it may be relevant to you, but I encourage you to look around and find what catches your interest.

I hope you find some inspiration from the list below! And check back frequently as I update this list regularly based on new information I come across! Or click here to be notified via email once additional resources are added.

Productivity Tools

Tools (apps etc.) to help you be effective in any area of life, as well as tools to manage your mental health and daily wellness

Mindfulness Apps:
Calm – daily meditations & mindfulness resources to help you improve your focus & general well being day to day ( I personally use Calm daily to track emotions, meditate, and for focus music while I work)
Headspace – a mindfulness/meditation app to help you manage emotions. Includes guided workouts in the premium version too.
Habit Trackers
Habit – track daily habits with a simple user design & lots of color choices
Organization/Time Management/Prioritization
Trello
– has a great “drag and drop” user experience that’s the best tool for various ‘to-do’ lists. I use it to create a “backlog” of ideas for everything from my content ideas for my next blog posts/Instagram topics, to items I want to buy, to a more general to-do list. A full post with more details is coming soon!
