Do you think there is any truth to the idea that getting out of your comfort zone is good for you? I'm always pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and to be honest, it's getting exhausting.
Last weekend I went to a mountain biking camp. I spent most of the time sure I was going to kill or injure myself! I pushed myself to go faster down the steep mountain, and learned lots of new skills that I need to keep practicing. In the end, it was exhilarating!
I also push myself out of my comfort zone on a regular basis through Taekwondo. I am constantly learning new kicks, blocks, and more. It's difficult to be constantly learning. Some days I want to go back to white belt just so I can feel like I'm at the head of the class!
I am also fortunate to have a job that is enjoyable and challenging.
Do you push yourself out of your comfort zone? When you do, does it benefit your mental health or just exhaust you? What are some positive ways we can all challenge ourselves in a way that allows us to grow?
