The dictionary defines comfort as “a state of physical ease and freedom from pain or constraint.” It is described as a feeling of “pleasurable ease.” These words alone foster a soothing sense of peace. We all seek to be in a place that provides us warmth, contentment and security. For most of us, this place is often synonymous with the familiar habits we have grown accustomed to throughout everyday experiences of life.
We call this place the “comfort zone.”
Our comfort zone is the place we find least threatening. It is the place we go to when we are uncertain about current situations or fearful about where we are headed. This zone is the paradigm we find ourselves attached to as we instinctively journey through day to day life. We are often lured back there when we find ourselves faced with challenges in our path.
