Starting To Get Out Of My Comfort Zone

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well! In today’s post I’m going to be talking about how I’ve started to get out of my comfort zone. Before the new year I decided to put a few things in place so I could go into the new year having already done things out of my comfort zone and I’d been putting off.

I’m definitely someone who has thought about doing something but not having the confidence to do it on my own. An example of this would be joining a pole fitness class, I did this a few years ago with a friend but ended up having to stop. In November I thought about getting back into it as I really enjoyed it, due to friends working different shifts to me it meant our schedules didn’t match up with the class times. 

For a while I put off enquiring as I didn’t feel confident to go on my own. I decided to enquire in January as one of my goals. However, as December neared I thought it was silly of me to not do something just because it meant I’d have to do it on my own and why put it off?! So one evening I sent an email enquiring and when there was a space I paid for my first class. 

Not going to lie I was super nervous before the class as I’d never gone to an exercise class on my own, I’d always gone with someone. So when I parked outside I gave myself a little pep talk and before I could overthink it I went in. Before I knew it the class was over and I had really enjoyed it. It wasn’t as daunting as I’d thought it would be, I had spoken to a few people in the class and I didn’t feel as self conscious as I’d thought I’d have felt. 

Once the session had ended I felt quite proud of myself for not just putting it off and not doing something I had wanted to do. Now I have been to a few sessions and I really enjoy pole fitness! It is so fun and really good exercise! 

So if you have anything you want to do but are putting it off or not sure you want to do it – just go for it! You’ve got nothing to lose and at the end you’ll know if it’s something you want to continue or you’ll be glad you tried it to know it’s not for you!

    Well done. I genuinely think it’s much harder doing things like joining new clubs as an adults, especially on our own. We seem to develop a fear that we wouldn’t of had as a kid .

    You’re so inspiring! I totally would have just talked myself out of it and not gone- hopefully 2019 is the year that I step out of my comfort zone as well!

      Thank you so much! I’ve started to do it in other areas of my life and I can’t say I regret going out of my comfort zone at all!
      You’ve got this, comfort zones aren’t as scary as we make them out to be sometimes!

    Love this post! I definitely am trying my best with this, I used to dance when I was younger and did it for years, but then I stopped and now I really want to get back into it again! As an adult it is scary but I just need that first push and to go to that first lesson again to realise it’s probably not as bad as I think haha! It’s daunting and scary on your own haha, thanks for this post 😊 xx

Being able to read about other people getting over struggles that I am trying to tackle is so inspirational, so thank you shar​ing your words of wisdom!
