Before we fully jump into this comfort zone ideas list I want to quickly share some tips for learning to get out of your comfort zone.
Comfort zone advice and tips:
Write down your life goals.
The first thing you need to do when you are trying to step out of your comfort zone is to think about what you want to accomplish and why. By knowing what you are working towards and how not feeling stuck in your comfort zone will help you get there can really motivate yourself.
I recommend keeping that life goals somewhere visible (like hung up in your room or make it your phone background). That way you can get that motivation and inspiration regularly.
Change up your routines.
Once you know what you want your life to look like by stepping out of your comfort zone then you can start to change your routines to account for this. Routines are generally a helpful thing but when you get really stuck into your routines and not willing to change them your personal growth often suffers. So make small changes to you daily and weekly routines to help you get out of your comfort zone.
Do one small new thing every week.
The next thing you can do, which if you truly commit can be the most helpful, is to try one small (or large) new thing each week. This tip will really help you to get out of your comfort zone. Small changes can really add up in the long run but also don’t be afraid of big things as well! It’s all about balance.
Remember that sometimes you will fail.
You will try things that are out of your comfort zone and you won’t succeed at them. And that’s honestly just as important. Failure is absolutely an essential part of growing as a person and learning how to be your best self.
