We are creatures of habits. So it stands to reason that sooner or later, we “slip” into our comfort zones.
It feels euphoric at first. Things are happening. We bathe in our own efficiency. And there is no problems in our comfort zone. But after a while, we get bored. Work becomes no longer challenging. People are too familiar. Even the daily rituals are getting a bit flat.
Time to find that mojo?
From time to time, it is good to break out of our habits. It forces us to use our senses and wake up our brains to adapt to something new. Granted it may be a bit uncomfortable. We may even miss our comfort zone perhaps. But that is hoe we learn and grow.
It does not have to be a dramatic or torturous affair. For example, traveling to foreign places, learning a new language, or both are proven ways to experience the newness of a different environment. And during in the process, we discover a part of ourselves that we have lost touch.
Have you been “stuck” in your comfort zone? Thinking about breaking away? Why not.
