Inspirational quotes encourage us to do something that we wouldn’t normally do. However, crossing the line of your comfort zone is not easy. Rather than rendering the fear, it creates more anxiety.

But what exactly is Comfort Zone? Why is it that we tend to get comfortable with the familiar and our routines, but when we’re introduced to new things, the glimmer fades so quickly?

“Discomfort may be a doorway; don’t run from it.”
Joseph Deitch

Our comfort zone is the level at which you feel comfortable, with ease, and familiarity. Stepping out of your comfort zone and growing consistently, is to lower your resistance to doing the task and it builds up confidence. Our comfort zone is our natural, neutral state – a place where stress and anxiety are minimal. There’s nothing wrong with being in your comfort zone unless you start holding yourself back instead of challenging yourself to learn, grow, and try new things.

“Being slightly uncomfortable, whether or not by choice, can push us to achieve goals we never thought we could. But it’s important to remember that we don’t need to challenge ourselves and be productive all the time,”
Alina Tugend

Comfort zone benefits in obvious ways: regular happiness, low anxiety, and reduced stress. In order to maximize our performance, we need a state of relative anxiety – a space where stress levels are slightly higher than normal. This space is called “Optimal Anxiety”, and it’s just outside our comfort zone. Stepping out of your comfort zone can get yourself to the next level and accomplish something and accepts challenges and can turn up into an amazing result. However, pushing too hard can cause negative results. Below are the perks of stepping outside your comfort zone.

“Try new things, step out of your comfort zone, take risks, do things in ways you’ve never done them before, ask for help, surround yourself with self-actualized people, become obsessed with the fact that you have one go-round on this planet as you that is you, and realize how precious and important it is not to squander that.”
