Discomfort Zone


While it is human nature to shy away from things that are outside of our comfort zone, it is only by spending time in our discomfort zone that we can grow, and improve, and realise our full potential. Whether it’s putting yourself forward for a new challenge, asking for difficult feedback, nailing a presentation or getting a dream job, in this book Farrah Storr shows how you have to push through what she calls ‘brief moments of discomfort’ in order to get to where you need to be. Farrah describes these brief moments of discomfort as ‘like HIIT training for your life’ – and shows how the more you force yourself into them, the easier it will get.
