Best Audible books for personal growth? First, let’s talk about WHY I love Audible.
I’m really into personal growth. I used to love reading books like Atomic Habits and Miracle Morning. I would write in them and soak them up on my couch on the weekend or before bed under a reading light.
And when I became a mom, I struggled to carve out time during the day or stay up at night reading the books I wanted to for personal growth.
Like so many thing in motherhood, I needed to adjust, but it wasn’t without frustration. I didn’t like the stagnant feeling. I was being stretched, but not in the ways I was used to and not in the way I might have wanted to be.
So I started to lean more into Podcasts and eventually, I found myself in love with Audible and subscribing for an annual membership.
Now I use my Audible subscription for non-fiction, personal growth books and before I go to bed I read light fictional books that don’t make my brain spin with ideas and tempt me to write notes.
So let’s talk about how I use Audible for practical personal growth in a season of life that isn’t set up for hours of reading on a Saturday morning. An Audible subscription is a busy mom’s best friend, allowing you to multitask, stay informed, and take care of yourself, all while juggling the demands of motherhood.
Why I love Audible for practical personal growth
- Multitasking made easy
- Affordable and uncomplicated
- Makes mundane tasks enjoyable
- Allows you to a break even when you can’t physically get one
Multitasking made easy
As a busy mom, you’re no stranger to multitasking. Audible allows you to make the most of those moments when your hands are occupied but your mind is free. Whether you’re folding laundry, preparing meals, or going for a walk with your little ones, you can simply pop in your earbuds and listen to a captivating audiobook. It’s a great way to enjoy a story or dive into a new subject while accomplishing your daily tasks.
Affordable and uncomplicated
For just $15 per month, an Audible subscription is a worthwhile investment. Considering the countless hours you’ll spend entertained and informed, it’s a small price to pay for the value you’ll receive. Plus, it’s a cost-effective alternative to purchasing individual audiobooks, which can often be more expensive. When you weigh the benefits against the monthly fee, Audible becomes a compelling choice for any busy mom.
Making mundane tasks enjoyable
Let’s face it – there are tasks we’d rather avoid, like yard work or going for a walk on a rainy day. However, Audible can turn these dreary moments into enjoyable experiences. By listening to an audiobook, you’ll find yourself engrossed in the story, making time fly while you complete those less appealing tasks. It’s a win-win situation: you get things done, and you get lost in a world of imagination at the same time.
Taking a break, even when you can’t physically get one
As a mom, finding time for yourself can be challenging, especially when you can’t physically step away from your responsibilities. Audible offers a solution by allowing you to take a mental break while still attending to your children. Whether you’re waiting in the car during school pickup or supervising playtime at the park, you can escape into a gripping audiobook, providing a much-needed mental respite.
What about free audiobooks on Libby and Hoopla?
I also have Libby on my phone, but I’ve noticed that the non-fiction audiobook selection is not as impressive on Libby. There are also several books that are only available on Audible!
I use Libby for renting books for my Kindle. I’m on several waitlists at a time and I read the next one that pops up! But for personal growth books, I use Audible.
