How to Step Out of Your Comfort Zone: 3 Helpful Habits
By Henrik Edberg - The Positivity Blog http://www.positivityblog.com/index.php/2014/01/30/step-out-of-your-comfort-zone/ People often get stuck in mostly discussing or reading about making positive changes. Instead of spending that time and effort on actually making the changes they want in life. Why? One big reason in my experience is simply that it is uncomfortable to step outside of your own comfort zone. So what can you do about it? In this article I’d like to share three habits that have helped me to make it easier to step outside of my own comfort zone and to make real changes in my life. 1. Mix the small things up. Often. This is an easy to do habit you can use every day if you like. You can for example:
- Try new music. Listen to music that you wouldn’t usually listen to or have never heard before on Spotify or a similar service.
- Eat something new. We try to cook from at least one new recipe each week. It often makes for an interesting experience, a tasty treat for the taste buds and has helped us to find many, many new favorites in the past few years.
- Read something your friends wouldn’t guess you would read. It can give you many new ideas and open your mind up to new perspectives.
- Take another path home. Instead of taking the usual route home from work, school or a friend’s house take another path and see something new even if you are in transport mode.
