Comfort zones do have their benefits, in that having predictable routines helps us to avoid stress and be more productive. Still, it’s important to find a healthy balance and not get stuck there!

  1. Interesting quote! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great reminder and I believe in it. It is all about choices.
    When we start a new project, things in the beginning are difficult but then we ge used to it and with the stable progress it becomes our comfort zone. If we want to achieve more we have to go out of this new comfort zone.
    And then life goes on.

    Thank you for sharing with Nurturing Thursday! <3
