Today, The Washington Post debuts “The Growth Guide,” series with stories, advice and guidance for cultivating a fuller life. The first piece of the series discusses the importance of personal growth during hardship, and links to additional content that builds on The Post’s service journalism offerings, highlighting resources like podcast and book recommendations, features on tackling grief and a growth quiz that helps map readers’ ideal growth journey. This content event seeks to inform and inspire readers to continue on their growth journey through practical advice.
“Personal growth, particularly for young people, is a complicated endeavor and many people are unsure where to start. We spoke to experts, scientists and celebrities to create a fun and authentic growth guide, and are thrilled to share it with our readers,” said Evan Bretos, Director of Special Initiatives and Partnerships at The Post. “We’ve seen strong reader demand for this type of coverage and this is a perfect example of The Post’s dedication to creating valuable content our readers have an appetite for.”
The guide will cover many subjects, like dealing with generational trauma, understanding astrology-culture, identifying the benefits of analog living and spotlight the emergent world of microdosing for mental health. Additional stories will provide guidance on how to talk about therapy with resistant family members and discover the origin-story of the growth mindset.
