Can you imagine a day at work or at school without your phone? Well, of course not. Why we’ll all rather walk back home and get our precious phone rather than spend a whole day without it. Even though the majority of the entire American population would agree, this only proves how reliant we are on our comfort zones.
The moment we leave our houses, we know that become vulnerable to different kinds of stress factors. It’s normal to experience stress when we leave our comfort zones, and we leave our comfort zone the second we go out of the main door. This is the time that we become exposed to different people, some of which we like and some of which we don’t like. With that, we made it a habit of carrying gadgets or things with us that comprise a part of our comfort zone. One of the perfect examples is our phone.
We’re afraid that upon leaving our homes, the world will leave us bored and lifeless. With that, we need some sort of device with us, usually, the phone keep us entertained all day. So, that whenever we encounter people who we dislike or who dislikes us, we don’t have to go through the agony of spending time with them, because we can spend our tie with our phone instead. Yeah, sure, the phone has loads of apps that are really useful in our everyday lives. But whether we admit it or not, we make this as an excuse to rely on this gadget.
As much as we all hate to admit it, there are loads of reasons why we need to step out of our comfort zone once in a while. Here are some of them.
You’ll be more productive
Comfort kills productivity, that’s for sure. I’m not discouraging you from doing the things you love, but one of the reasons why you’ve just got to step out of the comfort zone is because there are things that you just have to finish. When we phone things in, we tend to do the minimal effort, and a result, we don’t finish things in the supposed time.
Try staying away from the phone for an hour and you’ll see what I mean. You’ll get so many things done. And now you’ll have more time to do the things you longed to do.
You’ll have an easier time dealing with change
People who don’t leave their comfort zones are doomed to being too attached their present reality whether it be a girlfriend/boyfriend, friend, or family. When things start to fall apart or if changes suddenly seem to occur, they find it difficult to accept the situation and move on.
Recall in the film “Ratatouille”, Remy said to his dad that the only permanent thing in this world is change. This is a truism. We tend to get attached to the present, but the thing is one day, things wouldn’t be the same anymore. Everything changes. Change is the only thing that will never change.
You’ll find it easier to push beyond your boundaries in the future
One of the things that keep us from stepping out of our comfort zone if our fear of rejection. In our mind, we know that we are capable of doing great things, but there is a certain doubt within us that keeps u from taking risks. We want to play it safe.
Well, the good thing about learning to step out of the comfort zone is that we won’t feel any dread about taking risks. At some point of our life, we’ll experience needing to do something that’s beyond our abilities, and most of the people who fail to do this are the ones who are not in peace with their outer zones.
You’ll find it easier to brainstorm and harness creativity
This is sort of a soft benefit, but gaining new experiences, meeting new people, going to new places are a sure-fire way to spark our creativity.
Sometimes when we feel that the entire world is upon our shoulders, it only takes a spark of creativity to make everything better. We’re not the only ones who dread dullness. The world does too. If we become too plain, too ordinary, too routinely, the world starts to fall under us.
