Sometimes what keeps us from getting what we want in life is our reluctance to change our routines and habits. In fact is much easier to stay in our comfort zone. Alan Henry from lifehacker.com describes a comfort zone, as a behavioural space where your activities and behaviours fit a routine and pattern that minimises stress and risk.
We often stay in our comfort zone to avoid discomfort. Rather then focusing on discomfort, an alternate view is looking at expanding your comfort zone to include the things you’ve always wished you could do.
