This episode was all about comfort. We all tend to crave comfort, but we also need to recognize it for what it is. There aren’t many notes for this one:
The main takeaway here is that comfort is a state of stagnation. Within comfort you aren’t being challenged, you aren’t progressing, you aren’t getting better. You are simply coasting along.
This is not a good condition for those of us that want to become our best selves. We need to learn to despise the constant comfort that other’s seek and take refuge in.
To become who you want to be you must become extremely comfortable with discomfort. If you can push through discomfort then you can accomplish just about anything.
For this week’s CTA we start training our bodies and minds to get comfortable amidst discomfort. And we do this by cold exposure a la Wim Hof. We start by ending our showers on the coldest setting and learning to relax within the cold water. Each day we spend a little bit more time in the cold until we can do 2 minutes and be completely relaxed and breathing easy. This is a great step towards becoming comfortable in uncomfortable situations. It’s something you can fall back on when you’re current situation is getting uncomfortable.
