6 Activities For Personal Growth

I’ve been on my own personal growth journey for the past couple of years, of course, we’re always learning and growing, but I really homed in on this idea of personal growth a few years ago and since then I’ve been trying my best to stay proactive in my own personal growth journey.

If you’re looking for ways to enhance your own personal growth, then look no further. For today’s post I’ve compiled a list of 6 activities you can do for your own growth as a person.

Enrol on a online/distance learning course:

A great way to continue in your personal growth journey is to never stop trying to learn new things and taking an online or distance learning course is a great way to do just that. Whether it’s to learn something career-related or interest-related, you can find so many learning resources online and taking an online course is a great way to commit to that learning.

Push yourself out of your comfort zone, into the stretch zone:

Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone on a regular basis is a great way to grow as a person. For more information about the three different zones we exist in and more then check out my recent post Why I’m Ditching The Comfort Zone After Lockdown.

Start a Journal:

Journaling is a great way to express and explore your emotions, thoughts and even behaviours on a day to day basis enabling you to analyse yourself, see the bigger picture and see where you’re at. It’s also a great way to measure your emotional growth over a set period of time i.e how you handle your feelings.


Books are full of knowledge, whether that’s fiction or non-fiction and immersing yourself in a good book can open you up to ideas you’ve never had before.

Pursue A Hobby:

Hobbies are great because they both relax and inspire you and feeling inspired is one of the corner-stones to growing as a person. If you feel inspired you’re more likely to take inspired action. It’s also a great way to stay in tune with yourself.

Spend time with friends and family:

Not only does having a good social life reduce stress and improve emotional wellbeing, ensuring you’re in an emotional place to be able to grow as a person. It also gives you chance to learn new things and explore new ideas in conversation.

So those are my six ideas for personal growth, I’m sure there’s plenty more I haven’t thought of.

  2. Great suggestions! There are SO many different online courses available, especially in our current global situation. This includes both courses that you have to pay for as well as a wide variety of courses that are completely free of charge. If you can boost your knowledge and set yourself up for success without even having to pay a penny, just investing your time, why wouldn’t you? Right?

  3. Thank you for such a simple and concise actionable post! I so often don’t end up reading posts as I get overwhelmed with all the information – especially with personal growth as it makes me uncomfortable (mostly it just pushes me in ways I don’t always like) But I feel I have been on an cusp to growth for some time. I have started to stretch myself socially – something which I really struggle with but I realized I am lonely of my own doing. So I am focusing on expanding my social life by little bits here and there

  4. Reading has always been a hobby for me but I focused on reading more, and made it into what I talk about online! It’s helped me connect with others, improve my writing and finally have the confidence to pursue freelance writing as a career.

  5. This is a wonderful list! A couple months into the pandemic last year, I enrolled in a distance education certificate program and have loved doing that on the side to help myself continue to learn and grow! I also love your ideas of starting a new hobby, I’ve dabbled with gardening the past couple years and I had to learn so much! Thanks for sharing this list – it’s wonderful.

  6. Finding a new hobby and doing something just because you want to is a great one. It’s so rare as adults that we get the chance to just do something for sake of it and it’s always rewarding to see the progress x

  7. I find stepping out of my comfort zone the absolute best way to enhance my personal growth! Which has been quite hard to do over the last year with lockdown and things! Great tips and suggestions 🙂 x


  8. I have an on/off relationship with reading! I used to read all the time, and when I read now it really helps me feel good and helps me understand experiences across the world- but it takes some motivating to get started! Thank you for sharing these ideas x

  9. My hobby of knitting has helped me relax and grow as a person. I have joined knitting groups and have met some lovely people that I wouldn’t have met otherwise.

  10. Good tips! I think too many of us get bogged down by the day-to-day minutiae of whatever it is we’re trying to build. It’s important to take a step back and put everything into perspective. Remembering WHY you started something, whatever ignited that passion in you, is key. I personally also keep a gratitude journal. Both for my personal growth and for my travel blog as well. Good post!

  11. These are all excellent ideas! I definitely need to work on reading more, though. That is one I always manage to make excuses not to do.
