How to Safely Expand Your Comfort Zone

Get back on the horse

Just get over it – push through

Stop being so afraid

These are the kinds of messages we are told (or we tell ourselves) about how we should respond to fear.

The common narrative is that to improve, we need to be outside our comfort zone. But here is the funny thing about comfort zones…

The more we push outside our comfort zone, the smaller our comfort zone becomes.

By going too far beyond where we feel safe, we create a bad experience for ourselves, whether something bad actually happens or it’s just really scary, and our zone of feeling safe will get smaller.

So how do we improve?

The key is to work the edge of where you feel safe, doing something that is challenging, but then returning to what is easy. This is what will truly build your confidence and expand your comfort zone.
