Growmance stems from my personal experience. What excites me is teaching people to think differently and helping others transform their lives!

Pavi is the founder of the movement called ‘Growmance’, which means, falling in love with your self-growth journey. She loves nurturing communities and building products that empower people to live a purposeful and mindful life. She is also a technical product manager at Amazon, podcast host, mindfulness mentor, dance enthusiast, and nature lover. You can listen to her podcasts, get a free guided meditation and a 5-day ritual kit here!

Growmance means falling in love with your ever-evolving self, or in simple terms, having a romantic affair with growth.

Our logo is an infinity symbol that denotes the ‘Growmance’ way of living and is here to remind you that there are no limits to who you can be and what you can create in this world! There are infinite possibilities if you commit to becoming an infinite learner and believing in your infinite potential.

Back in 2019, I was fed up with the life I was living. Constantly hustling, with pressure to do more and be more, especially coming from an overachieving family of engineers.

Although I had passion and determination to pursue my interests, I did not have the physical and mental energy to do things because I basically felt “dead” after my 9–5 job. As a result of my lifestyle choices, I faced burnout and health issues.

That’s when I started to realize I was not living life to my fullest potential and not doing things that made me feel “alive”. I started working on healing my body first to become more energetic and lost 30 pounds in a year. What began as a commitment to improving my physical health, transformed me and shifted my focus to mental health. I started my self discovery journey and after 6 months of consistent mindfulness practices, I got a lot more clarity on my life’s purpose and was able to connect with my “authentic” self. When I transformed my life, and built that productive, mindful and purposeful life, I wanted to teach that to others. And that’s how Growmance started!

Now is really when you decide you want to prioritize yourself, prioritize your life, and take action to build your life’s vision.

Most people say “I don’t have the time for it right now”, but it’s really because you don’t have the energy and not the time. Once you learn to manage your energy, do things that energize you, you will be surprised to see how much time you have in a day. That is exactly what Growmance teaches you — how you can better manage your energy.

If you’re facing burnout, stress, struggling with accountability and consistency with self-care, or if you’re motivated to change your lifestyle and live a mindful life, then use this as an opportunity to take the first step.

This pandemic has been a great reminder that we all need to start investing in our personal growth and start living a purposeful life.

The vision for Growmance is to empower everyone to live a life of greater purpose, presence and energy! Growmance provides you with mindfulness experiences and products that bring more joy and intention into your everyday lives.

You can take the first step by joining Growmance Circles. “Growmance circles” is a weekly guided membership to slowly integrate mindfulness habits into your life with mentorship, accountability and digital guides. Every week, I will be teaching mindfulness lessons and guiding you through meditations and journaling for reflection. And the best part is, you have a supportive community to share your journey with and keep you accountable.

The next launch is a 12 weeks self-discovery workbook, which is an Ultimate Guide to discover your life’s purpose and share that with the world. This is for anyone who has been pondering on life’s biggest questions such as “Why am I here?”, “How can I make an impact and live a meaningful life?” and have that curiosity and passion to discover and live their purpose. The workbook will be available for pre-order on October 5th.

Growmance stems from my personal experience. What excites me is teaching people to think differently and helping others transform their lives!

My product management skills helped me think in frameworks and to create my product and services in a structured way. I’ve learned over the years to keep your customers front-of-mind and that’s exactly what I’ve done. I keep in touch with my community and hear about their challenges which helps me create something of value to them. Also, I make sure I get continuous feedback from the community and iterate on what I’m creating!

Manage your energy, not your time! The most common thing I hear from people is that they are so busy with their lives that they do not have time for mental health. Like how brushing our teeth or bathing are part of our daily life, mindfulness practices should also become part of our day to day life. Building mindfulness habits energizes us and gives us mental peace and clarity which will in turn unlock more potential and productivity. This is not something we commonly talk about in the tech world and most people manage their to-do lists in a stressful manner and eventually burnout, not realizing that they have to manage their energy to get the most out of their day. When you have more energy, you are creative, motivated and you can do more in less time and then you will have time for the things you love. Isn’t that what we all really want?
