Tips For Getting Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Summer is the perfect time to let go of your standard life programming, meaning you may have gotten yourself into some habits or ruts that keep you safe and comfortable. I recommend that you stretch yourself and do things you may not normally do.  Lighten-up, have fun, and enjoy yourself!

Stepping out of your comfort zone can feel a little scary or uncomfortable. That’s ok it’s suppose to. Just take it one-step at a time. Here are some tips to get started.

1.  Be willing to experience the unexpected. When a friend invites you to do something– like a party with other people you may not know – say ‘yes!’ You never know who you are going to meet and connect with, or develop a new friendship.

  1. If you want to date let yourself feel self-assured and take off the pressure. Practice smiling to people – anywhere. In the grocery story, going for a walk, or at work. This simple process is uplifting for you and others. You’ll feel lighter and more joyful.
  1. Breathe in the goodness of you! Do some journaling about those things that you like about yourself. Your kind, generous, treat yourself and others respectfully etc.. . This will help you to maintain a positive mindset.
  1. If you are ready to date – be flirtatious! Allow yourself to have fun and not take dating seriously. Picture this as a “sampler” or taste-testing. See who’s out there. This will help you to determine what you like and what you don’t like about someone. No need for “serious”, just be delighted!
  1. Everyone is attractive in his or her own way, let your own light shine. Express yourself and relish the new experiences that you are creating.
