Bust Out Of Your Comfort Zone

Welcome to day 1 of the Possibilities Unlimited challenge, powered by support from Humana.

The first step to unlocking possibilities is to change your routine. Challenge your expectations and your body by safely pushing beyond your known limits.

To begin, focus on increasing your endurance, especially if you exercise regularly. This will take you out of your comfort zone, improve your stamina, and release new potential within yourself.

Here are a few examples to consider:
  • Change your routine: Increase the length or frequency of your exercises
  • Add intervals: Instead of taking one long walk, add 30 seconds of jogging every couple of minutes
  • Set new fitness goals: Shoot for the stars and push yourself further than you ever have before
  • Try a new type of workout: Choose something that intrigues you, but you haven’t had the nerve to try

It is easy (and comfortable) to get stuck in a routine. But routine does not unlock possibilities — change does. During this challenge and moving forward, try to step out of that warm and cozy place, especially when you feel yourself in a routine rut. If it does not challenge you, it does not change you. Learn more about getting out of your fitness comfort zone.

I started today with a 3 mile walk before I walked my dog another mile as a cool down.
