Stretching your comfort zone
What is a comfort zone?
What is a challenge to your comfot zone?
Why do we need to stretch our comfort zone?
Just like muscles if your comfort zone is not stretched regularly then it begins to shrink and seize up. But just like muscles when you excercise them by stretching they get stronger and the things that were once difficult now seem much more manageable.
How do I stretch my comfort Zone?
Yet that person might well be drawn to meditation or affirmations each morning in front of the mirror. While these are methods of improving yourself and working on problems they are not stretching your comfort zone. That's like rubbing cream into your muscles and maybe even having a massage it's indirect action and not getting you anywhere. Maybe even taking you further away from your goal.
Quick guide to stretching your comfort zone:
Think about something small that would not be too much of a challenge for you and do it daily until you have 'stretched' into being comfortable with it.
Before you know it you will have a much bigger zone in which you can feel comfotable.
