Growth comes in all forms. Be it a small goal you’re working toward or a much larger shift in perspective, growth can mean different things to different people. But one thing that is consistent – it’s always present.
“It is never an end goal. It’s a balancing act between having the insight and then being motivated to make that change that leads to growth,” Dr. Sabrina Romanoff, clinical psychologist, told us.
In honor of that, Pop-up Shop TODAY is highlighting products to help cultivate growth for your body, mind and the planet. From plant-based meal subscriptions to low-waste beauty to productivity trackers, we have 16 options that can help you grow – whatever that means to you.
