We all have a comfort zone and many of us like to stay within its comforting walls. However, occasionally leaving your comfort zone could be good for you. While the thought of doing something you’re not used to can make you feel anxious, it can help you to grow as a person. 

We offer mental health support for Selby and the surrounding areas. Why not give us a call? Our phone line is open from 7 pm – 10 pm on weekdays and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Call us on (01757) 642 399. If you call before our phone lines are open and we cannot answer you will be diverted to an NHS Helpline.

How to Leave Your Comfort Zone

  • Do things a little differently – There are plenty of opportunities for you to challenge yourself. These opportunities can present themselves every day. Slow down when you’re walking around and enjoy what’s around you. Take less time choosing what to wear, turn your phone off while you eat, and visit new places. 

  • Try new things – When you try new things you expand your skillset. You foster your creativity, and you build resilience. Try new things more often and watch yourself enjoy them.
  • Get more creative – When you become more creative you allow yourself to step into the unknown. You learn new things and while you might fail now and again, you can learn from your mistakes. 
  • Challenge your beliefs – Consider challenging your beliefs. Talk to people you don’t usually talk to, read books about different topics, and learn new things. If you don’t challenge your beliefs you can become complacent. 

  • Be more honest – Being more honest might seem scary, but it’s a good way to challenge yourself. It’s also a good way to stand up for yourself. Communicate more honestly (and maybe diplomatically) with others. You could find that you strengthen your bond with other people.
