Hello everyone! How are you? I hope you’re enjoying your day so far!
Today I have a very different blog for you. It’s about doing things that are out of your comfort zone. In this blog you will find out what I think of this topic and I’ll tell you a little story! I hope you like it!
I’m sure most of you have all heard of this term: getting out of your comfort zone. It’s basically that you do things that you normally wouldn’t, this could be trying new things you have never done before but most of the time this term reflects upon doing things of which you are afraid.
I personally think that it is really important to go out of your comfort zone every once in a while. It doesn’t immediately have to be a big and impressive thing, but you could just start off with something simple and small, for example trying new foods that you have never eaten before. I promise you, after you have done things that are unusual to you, you’ll feel good and proud about yourself. Also you will have the feeling that you have accomplished something, this will motivate you to do things like this more often!
Do you want to hear about one of mine ‘out of my comfort zone’ experiences? Well I hope you do, because I’m going to tell it to you anyways (I’m sorry! Haha)! Here we go!
Last April I went to Italy with school (we did an exchange project with an Italian school), we had to do some research and afterwards write a report about it. At the end of our exchange we had to present our findings. I have never been a person that is confident and comfortable while presenting and this time I had to do it in front of 70 people, in English (which isn’t my mother language), with a microphone and on top of that it was for a grade. So no pressure at all! I was super nervous before the presentation and practiced a million times. Then the moment was there: I had to present, luckily there was my group with whom I made the report, we had to present together, so I wasn’t alone which made the situation way better! The presentation went okay, due to my nerves I made some small mistakes, but maybe they weren’t noticeable for the audience. After the presentations were done, I felt relieved and proud of myself, because I just did it: I set my fears aside and did something out of my comfort zone.
I recommend everyone to try something like this once! But please think of this quote: ‘Live life on the edge, but don’t fall off.’
So that was it for today’s blog! I hope you found it interesting! Definitely let me know in the comments below, if you have ever done anything out of your comfort zone, I would love to know!
Have an amazing day!
Lots of love, Sophie
