People of Growthopedia
We are Jen and Matt
We started Growthopedia with the intention of spreading loving kindness and mental health awareness around the world.
In order to reach a bigger audience and to make our voices heard, every post and piece of art we share comes with a meaningful message behind its creation.
"Once I started prioritizing my personal growth and mental health, I was astonished at all the things I was able to accomplish. After a decade of suffering, I first acknowledged having a mental illness in 2019. I suffer from mental illness and it will always be apart of me, that is NOTHING to be ashamed about.
I created Growthopedia with the intentions of stressing the importance of spreading loving kindness to everyone, as well as, sharing coping mechanisms that have helped me tremendously. My anxiety and depression has led me to challenge myself in ways I never have before. I have stepped out of my comfort zone because of it, allowing me to explore my talents, spirituality, morals, values, and personal relationships.
Through my art - my outlet for trauma - I was able to be my true complete self through the eyes of Growthopedia. I am so excited to see what the future has in store!"
"On my personal development journey, I discovered the infinite wealth written on the pages laid between book covers.
It took until my third year of college to finally do something I've never done before, read a book for fun. This particular novel encompasses personal development and self-improvement. To think where I'd be today if I picked it up early than I did, as it sat in my car trunk for 5 years. Regardless, that book was the spark that set me off on a spiritual quest to answer my biggest question, what am I doing with my life?
I began exercising more, stretching more, eating healthier, working out my brain just as much as my body, and in turn life became sweeter.
Everyday since I reap the benefits of my mind and body connection more and more. I'm working towards spreading this newfound consciousness with the world hoping to make others lives' a little less chaotic."
