Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

We all have a comfort zone. A place where we are familiar, surrounded by a sense of security. Our comfort zone can help us stay true to who we are...staying balanced and centered...allowing us to live within our means. Sounds like a nice place to stay, doesn't it? For some, yes, but for the rest of us who want more out of life, we will have to take a step out into the uncomfortable every once in a while.

Think of a moment in your life when you stayed in your comfort zone, instead of taking a chance. What kept you in your comfort zone? Was it motivation, fear, lack of experience, or finances?

What if you did take that chance? What would your life look like today? Where would you be? Describe what you would be feeling? Who would be with you?

Dystonia can prevent us from doing things that are planned out. Most likely because we never know when our "good days" or "bad days" are going to be. By taking the opportunity to step out of our comfort zone on the "good days" and do begin doing things we got used to NOT going for a quick walk, reading or writing, visiting a friend, or inviting your family over for a visit...we will be able to explore life more and grow as a person. Dystonia is part of our life, it's not our life.

Know your comfort zone, create a list of what you want to do, and when the opportunity comes along, step out of your comfort zone and make it happen!
