'They don't call it the comfort zone for nothing!'
Stepping out of your comfort zone as a means to grow as a person
But I have to admit, that getting out of your comfort zone can make you a better person. It's a way to develop new skills and build your character. And I'm all for that.
So getting out of my comfort zone is on my mind a lot.
But the thing is: I'm usually quite uncomfortable already.
I'm not very comfortable to begin with
With five kids I worry all the time. And I often feel quite stressed. I cráve peace and quiet. So then I start to worry that I'm not getting out of my comfort zone enough.
Until last Friday. I was running, and it felt hard and uncomfortable. Suddenly I thought:
'Hey! Doesn't this count too? This is not comfortable. So does this mean I've stepped out of my comfort zone?'
If running counts as stepping out of your comfort zone, I can check stepping out of my comfort zone off of my to-do-list.
But then again: I'm very comfortable with going for a run every day. I like how it makes me feel. So shouldn't I participate in a race or something? I réálly don't want to do that, because I like my solitary runs. Wouldn't that be stepping out my comfort zone?
Do you think going for a run is stepping out of your comfort zone? Simply because it's a work-out?
