Staying in your comfort zone is easy. After all, that is all that we know, so it makes sense to revert back to it whenever we are faced with the rawness of life. In other words, It’s our natural tendency to return to an anxiety neutral, comfortable state. As a consequence, it gives you a sense of security and it keeps you from getting too stressed when things get uncomfortable. Leaving your comfort zone means stress and anxiety because it can result in a positive or negative outcome. It is important to understand that the comfort zone is not necessarily a bad thing. However, when you become aware of where you are mentally you are in a position to step out of your comfort zone so that you can harness creativity. Pushing your personal boundaries can help you get on the zone sooner, become more productive, and find smarter ways to do things. Most importantly, once you step out of your comfort zone it becomes easier so you can handle the pressure of stepping outside of the box a lot better. To conclude, stepping out of your comfort zone can be a positive as well as a negative thing, but that doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are pushing yourself beyond the mental blocks that keep you from taking action.
