Comfort Zone

A comfort zone is a physical, emotional and psychological state of beingness in which things feel comfortable and familiar to us and we are at ease and in harmonious control of our environment, where we experiencing low levels of anxiety, stress and frustration. Within our comfort zone, a steady and productive level of performance is possible, because of our state of mind where we…

  • function in an “anxiety-neutral” position,
  • recognize that our uncertainty, scarcity and vulnerability are minimized,
  • believe we'll have access to enough love, food, talent, time, admiration and
  • feel we have some control over what is happening to us (i.e. determining our destiny).

Our comfort zone is a good thing for our overall well being when based on and driven or managed by open mindedness. However… it becomes a bad thing when our comfort zone forms an integral part of the 'Ape-on-a-chain' trap resulting from close mindedness and a neglect of being aware, questioning dogmas and practicing mindfulness.
