What makes us the most comfortable may be what stands in the way of our progress. Our comfort zones are our habits that help us reduce stress in the moment. When overused, our comfort zones contribute to loss of productivity. They become our extended or habitual escapes from our realities.
When we engage in many of the activities listed below too often or for too long, we feel good about ourselves, we seem busy, we enjoy our mental get-away, and in some cases we avoid conflict. However, we miss opportunities to meet our goals, become more self-motivated, enhance our emotional growth, and make ourselves accountable.
If you find a comfort zone activity in this list that you overuse, perhaps this is an opportunity for self-improvement and accountability. Take a look. See if you have an opportunity to improve your use of time.
You may have a comfort zone that’s not included on the list. Add it to the list and make a decision about how you will use each of your comfort zones. Perhaps they can be used as rewards for a job well done and not an escape from doing a job.
