What brings you comfort, or makes you comfortable? A warm blanket and a hot drink, perhaps, or your favorite teddy bear. It could be taking a warm bath or reading a good book. It’s probably not jumping out of a plane, though. Right? An activity like that is more likely to take you out of your comfort zone.

If an activity takes you out of your comfort zone, it makes you nervous and unsure of yourself. For example, a common fear is speaking in front of a large group. For a lot of people, having to do that would take them out of their comfort zones. In fact, it might make their hearts beat faster and their hands become wet.

Some people believe that you should really try to take yourself out of your comfort zone. They think that doing this makes you stronger and more brave. Actor Vanessa Hudgens is one of those people. She feels that stepping out of her comfort zone will help her to grow.

When I started learning English, I was out of my confort zone when I talked to others in English because it was not good my native language.  Now a days my English is much better, therefore, I feel more confident speaking in English and getting out of my confort zone.

I prefer to stay inside my comfort zone but as the saying goes ,” no pain, no gain ”  We need to step out in order to grow and go  beyond the beating track  so as to  get confidence in ourselves. Sometimes when  i am with some people i am like a duck  out of the water , then i wish that i that time i could be inside my comfort zone.

when I went to my work at the first time I really was out of comfort zone cause I didnt to do and they gave me first students to teach.I didnt know how and what to speak with them ,it was really hard.But I agree that being out of comfort does you stronger and confident .Nobody helps you and you have to arrange affairs yourself.

everybody likes to sleep in their homes,comfort beds..but itsnt bad idea to sleep sometimes in a tent,under stars and moon in a summer night..it can be different experience in the Nature ..is it out of your comfort zone ? 


to have a picnic in the forest, to read a book near a river,to take some photos in the mountains ..we can do them for making our lifes more beautiful ..we dont need to do extreme sports for feeling beauty of life..


of course ,everything has advantage and disadvantage in life, its important it worths it :))
