6 Ways To Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Stepping out of your comfort zone is very important to me. Over the last few years I’ve noticed the importance of pushing myself. Just to get outside my comfort zone, learn something new and challenge myself.

What are 5 easy ways to step out of your comfort zone? How can you get out of your comfort zone and enter the growth zone?

1. Become more curious

Remember as a kid we would always be incredibly curious about life and what is around us. I personally feel like we really need to find that curiosity again.

Allow ourselves to find a something that is new, exciting and ignites that curiosity that we need. There are so many exciting things in the world for us to do, make the most of it!

2. Change your daily routine

I’ve made changes to my daily routine lately, and I think the fact that I work from home allows me to do that.

For example the small changes that I’ve made include:

  • waking up earlier
  • practicing yoga
  • going out for a walk
  • listen to something new, new podcast, playlist
  • have a proper wind down routine of an evening
  • read more books – (find out what I’ve read lately)
  • watch a new TV programme.

The changes do not have to be massive changes, but simple changes can make the world of difference.

3. Start a challenge

Wanted to do something for a long time that you enjoy? Maybe you love reading? Set yourself a challenge for the month to see how many books you can read in a month.

Goodreads has a yearly challenge for reading, so break it down into months. Maybe increase the number of books per month? You can follow me on Goodreads!

4. Go out

I think the pandemic has definitely made me feel like I should be indoors more, and now that lockdown has eased slightly it means we have a little more freedom.

I’ve been going for a few more walks, enjoying nature, and grabbing a cup of coffee to enjoy the sunshine. It is the little things in life that make the world of difference, and I’m all about that life!

5. Learn something new

There are so many things we can learn online, a lot of things are for free. I’ve recently taken up calligraphy and also completed some training courses on Google Analytics and finding something you’re passionate about is amazing.

Look online, look at information on learning a skill and do what makes you happy.

Ultimately learning new skills can open new doors for you, it could:

  • be a start of a new career
  • help in your everyday life
  • boost your confidence.

6. Take a different route when you go out

I’ve been finding lots of different routes in my local area, even if I go for a drive. Being able to see different areas and enjoy my local area is amazing.

If you go out, look at a few different routes home and take an enjoyable journey! It is so worth it.

    Hi Amie. Great ideas! We quite often do the ‘different route’ thing when we are taking our dog for a walk – sometimes we just let him decide which way to go!

  • I’ve never really thought about changing my daily routine as stepping out of my comfort zone, but it really is. It doesn’t happen very often, but I love mornings where I’m up at 6am and out walking with the dog, with my flask of tea in hand. It always sets me up perfectly for the day! I started doing calligraphy during lockdown & I really love it. It’s a skill I think you have to be patience with, but I really enjoy the art form.

    This is lovely, Amie, I’d never considered changing my daily routine as stepping outside a comfort zone but you’re so right. Also about rediscovering the curiosity of a child! x

  • Thanks for sharing these ideas, I have been thinking about changing my routine to include some of the lessons that I have used in the last few months to help with my mental health, it will be taking me a while to do that. 🙂
