Do you find yourself doing the same things in your life (relationships, work, exercise regimen) because it’s familiar and comfortable? Maybe it’s time to stop living life in your bubble, get outside of your comfort zone and start living to your true, authentic self.
When I first started working out consistently, I was terrified of the gym (see my 5 steps to how I overcame it!). I was working out in my living room and hiding from the world instead of facing my fears and going to the gym. One day I realized that I had conquered my at-home workout tutorials and yoga videos in my living room and thought to myself that I could either keep doing what I was doing, or take it to the next level. I wanted to go to the gym and take a workout class with other people, but was soo very nervous. After bribing my (terrified) self to go to my first workout class at my local YMCA (Zumba, to be exact), I left feeling empowered and never looked back.
I tried every single class that my Y had to offer- I couldn’t get enough of this feeling of self-accomplishment, growth and facing my fears. Every class I attended, it became less and less scary. My life literally changed forever.
I lost weight, started a passion for health and wellness, created my blog and am now a certified wellness coach (and am accepting clients!). All because I faced my fears of the unknown, believed that I could achieve things that seem impossible and put myself out there into the world. And remembering that no matter what life throws at me, I will get back up, try again and keep going.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
