If you are someone who likes having a routine then it would be difficult for you to step out of your comfort zone and try new things however, stepping outside your comfort zone may give you a sense of liberation that you never thought was possible.
If you want to start taking chances and if you have the urge to try new things in life you should start by making small changes because a big change might be a too overwhelming for you to handle. For example, if you only eat cereal for breakfast you could start by trying new things for breakfast every day. This could also lead to you not being so fussy with your food. If you only purchase simple, risk free handbags you could go out of your comfort zone by purchasing leather handbags online, instead of choosing the same style you always do. Small changes will eventually lead to bigger changes that could impact your life in positive ways.
Spur of the moment
It is not essential for you to plan every step of your life. While planning for your future is a wise and responsible thing to do, you should also do things in the spur of the moment. Spontaneity is a great way for you to step outside your comfort zone as being spontaneous does not give you a lot of time to think about your decision; therefore you are most likely going to act on impulse. Being impulsive will enable you to experience things that you would not normally do and living in the spur of the moment could make you get a sense of freedom as you would not tend to restrict yourself as much. You need to allow yourself to break the rules sometimes as breaking the rules might help you find inspiration. While it is good to be spontaneous from time to time you should not make a habit out of it as this could lead you to always act without thinking which could be harmful to you. When living in the spur of the moment you should make sure that you do not lose yourself along the way. Stepping outside your comfort zone and trying new things can be very beneficial to you however at the same time if you are not careful living spontaneously could cause you to lose yourself. Therefore before you are exposed to new things you should have a clear sense of who you are because having a strong sense of self identity will prevent you from straying away from your principles and morals.— May 16, 2016
