Being in one’s comfort zone implies familiarity, safety, and security. Creating a comfort zone is a healthy adaptation for much of our lives. But so is stepping out of our comfort zone when it’s time to transition, grow, and transform." - Abigail Brenner M.D

Stepping outside of your comfort zone is something that doesn't come naturally. Whether it's a physical challenge like a skydive, or a mental one such as a discussion with a stranger, it takes an element of self awareness that many lack. Fear of failure is inherent in our society, which discourages us from trying new, scary, things. In some ways this can be excused on the basis of self preservation. On the contrary, once you've mastered the art of identifying the comfort zones in which you reside, the ability to push yourself to diversify and grow becomes exciting. Personal growth can be one of the most fulfilling feelings there are. 

 

accept change //

Those who create challenging situations and choose to experience new things within their control are actively training themselves to deal well with change. Unexpected changes to our circumstances can be extremely stressful, but those who have chosen to let go of the reins can be better prepared when control of a situation is taken from them forcefully.

 

 

improve performance //

Psychologists have found over and over again that stress, albeit a word with negative connotations, can actually help us to outperform ourselves. The right amount of anxiety causes the mind to focus, and perform at a level which is much higher than that which we run on autopilot. 

 

improve creativity //

It's a hard hurdle to get across, but once we shed our fear of failure, and frame it in a context of a journey to improvement, it's known to improve the creative process by encouraging unusual thought. Allowing your imagination to run totally wild creates a certain vulnerability to your ideas, but equally heightens the chance of a 'eureka' moment.

slow the aging process //

This idea sounds a little far fetched, but is based in logic; as we get older we become set in our ways. The situations we feel comfortable in become less. We end up doing less, thinking less creatively and our minds can easily become stale. A young person with broad spectrums of experiences, challenges and thoughts will lead to an older person with a more active, working mind.

 

create interest //

Challenges, new experiences and conversations with people who don't think the same way as you all add up to a person with crazy stories to tell. Feeling interesting and interested in life will help you feel confident, and sharing your experiences with others can change others perceptions of you. 

 

 

live life to its fullest //

Quite apart from all of the psychological and physiological benefits, one reason to push the boundaries of your comfort zones is because living life to its potential is a gift. With a little self awareness, anybody can jump onto a more fulfilling journey.
