Everyone has a comfort zone. It’s easy to do what is comfortable and to not push ourselves to our highest potential. If we choose to follow our fears and stick with only the familiar, we will be destined to fall behind everyone else who is willing to take a chance and step outside of their comfort zone.
We are all creatures of habit and thrive on the predictable and comfortable to minimize stress. However, when we decide to leave our comfort zone, we need to learn how to manage the stress that follows the unpredictable and uncomfortable.
4 Tips to Manage Stress:
