Though a comfort zone can be described as a mental state in which people are relaxed, environmentally controlled, and experience low levels of anxiety and stress, this does not really summarize the full sense of a comfort zone. This is because many individuals have different levels of anxiety and tension, and a man or woman may be above or below another’s level of anxiety. The comfort zones thus differ from person to person.
The easiest way to describe a comfort zone then would be by reducing a person’s fear and insecurity to controllable thresholds. This is the region of your life where you feel familiar and controlled.
For example, some people enjoy working every morning and are accustomed to the rhythm of working every day because their office becomes a comfort zone and it is impossible for them to abandon this comfort zone and become a freelancer or to launch an enterprise. Of course, among some, a relaxation zone may be the moment they eat or the time they rest before a tv or social network during a long working day. Naturally, comfort zones are not stagnant and they change depending on how relaxed you feel.
When are you out of your area of comfort? What’s your comfort spot outside? If you start to feel vulnerable, nervous, overwhelming, and uneasy about doing something, you abandon your comfort area or face the danger of losing your comfort zone. Therefore, anything in your safe field frightens you or scares you and does not actually inflict physical harm.
A variety of behaviors and habits which we normally take back when we get a bit anxious, exhausted, terrified, frustrated, lost, bored, or afraid. Or happy. Or happy. In essence, as we feel intense feelings.
It is also a way of thinking that keeps one safe and happy. And a space in which we have set ourselves parameters and constraints. And clear convictions and feelings that explain why we do things.
There is also a clear recollection of all those previous encounters and words that can easily remember why you felt the way you did. Why believe the way you do. Why do you believe it? And why you should sit in this safe little box.
There is no tension here and none of this uncomfortable ‘vulnerability’ is sensed.
It’s not even difficult to reach your comfort zone. It’s actually good, simple, and straightforward. Even blissful.
Sounds fantastic right? Sounds great right?
Ok if you do not want improvement, develop new experiences and opportunities or new opportunities…..
What examples of a comfort zone are there?
Although your comfort zone is a mental condition, through those acts and activities sometimes you unwittingly see it manifest. And it is important to be mindful of your own comfort zone to learn and thrive in life.
Any examples of your safe zone can include behaviors (whether good or bad) or certain behaviors, such as:
Your link to food, alcohol, or some other drug,
Don’t chat at work,
Your views and habits of thinking,
Don’t apply for the job you really want,
Don’t do anything that interests you,
Be unable to take action,
Wanting to keep it the same,
Too much sleep,
Keep so much to yourself,
Go for what your friends/family really want,
Stick to routines that are not useful to you,
Addiction to social media,
Saying so many ‘yeah,’
To say ‘no to a lot,
You feel like you’re trapped
Why should I abandon my comfort area?
A comfort zone has an important role in our lives and will relieve tension and emotions (when done positively).
But it can also restrict us from enjoying all life and all we can give. It seeks familiarity and harmony, which is why we feel safe and relaxed. We were here before. We know what to expect. What to expect.
However, living within these borders will drastically restrict your life, and potentially lead to loss of achievement or incapacity to feel truly happy. If you live only in your comfort place, here are some of the adverse effects on your life:
You are stopping yourself
You are always limited to what is familiar and known when you stay in your comfort zone. This means that you rarely try new things or take chance. Without learning and growth, people can stagnate and become incomplete.
You no longer see opportunities
When you are bound by the limits of your comfort zone, the world’s opportunities are much more limited and fixed. Innovation, challenges, and risk live outside the boundaries of what we now know, so you will miss experiences and opportunities that could better change your life without pushing your comfort boundaries.
You are increasing your fears
We’ve all got fears. But did you know that avoiding things you’re so afraid actually leads to more? Fear is growing and becoming an enormous burden for you.
Regardless of whether your fear of failure, change, or unknown fear causes fear and stress. And the more you give in to this fear, the more you continue to control and limit yourself.
Reasons for health
Our minds must stretch and evolve over our lives to stay mentally stable. If we avoid practicing and become stagnant, neurodegeneration is more likely to be encountered and the symptoms of aging succumb quicker. Expanding your comfort zone over the lifespan will help the brain preserve the neuroplasticity that can keep it healthy and resilient in the later years.
You’re struck with confidence
You genuinely increase your self-confidence as you discover something new or improve yourself. The more you practice and develop your skills, the more confident you can be in your abilities to reach expectations and obstacles.
Learning new skills will help you overcome the worries that are unseen until you learn that you have the courage and maturity to deal with tough times.
How to get out of your zone of safety
The bubble surrounding your mind, where you love to stay inside is your comfort zone where it is safe and knowable. When you try to push beyond this boundary, your thoughts push back because they want to push your familiar routine.
It’s rough, unpredictable, and icky.
Yet it is beyond this familiar area where learning and evolution occur. Even the spells.
If you are prepared to expand this comfort area, even a little bit – check out the following ideas to get you started:
Aim to be imaginative
Creative attempts are enjoyable, give you the chance to articulate yourself and your feelings, and give you the ability to try something different low stakes. Then what if the latest invention turned out to be wasteful? It’s just for fun, and it can help to expand your mistake tolerance and learn new things.
Your ‘look’ freshen up
Have you got a ‘uniform?’ A convenient but stale and a little bland way of dressing? Even if it’s not completely bad, consider playing with your look and find ways to illustrate your true self through the clothes, perfume, hairstyle, or other facets of your appearance. You can still go back to your old look if you plan to don’t really like it.
It’s a very interesting start to write about your personal limits, shortcomings, and opinions about how the universe works and your role in it. Find the challenges that you put on yourself.
Journaling increases your self-knowledge and it is not easy to know how to extend your viewpoint until you know how to narrow your thoughts.
Write down what you desire and what you want in life, what stops you from having these, and discuss the reasons behind these feelings.
Adjust the everyday schedule
Mixing how you do stuff every day will allow you to make progress more convenient and give you fast, low-risk opportunities to extend your thinking.
Take the challenge for 30 days, find another way to work, try a new meal, watch a new film, or try a new hobby, from a totally different genre. Anything that will shake your daily routine will help you get out of your comfort zone.
Why is transition so frightening to so many of us? What does it mean to abandon our comfort zone and change our lives? All is understood, comfortable, and easy when you are in your comfort zone. However, leaving that area and doing new and different things raises fear and tension because we don’t know what will happen. We can’t really see the effect or the consequences, so we tend to dread it.
Much of the time, adhere to our convenience zone leads to certain invites, ideas, or chances of being rejected as we are unaware of the outcome.
Decide to say “yes” to anything that can happen for a certain time. Some people can do it all for a month and others can try it for a limited period, such as a day or a week.
The goal is to take advantage of all your possibilities and benefit from your experiences – you never know what possibilities are offered to you!
Watch for a coach
Look for those in your life who will move on who appreciate life and all its potential, despite their struggles. What do you learn? What do you learn from them? What techniques will they teach you to learn to survive and get away from your comfort zone?
Remember that you did
When you begin to decrease (and will and start searching for warmth in your old familiar ways, remember why and you must extend the comfort zone. Holding your mind on this will help to improve your confidence and maintain it when things are terrifying.
How do you handle the anxiety of losing your comfort zone? Or did you get that in the past? Whilst it is not always easy to put yourself there and resolve your concern, the effects are worth it!
