A well-known theory says that only 21 days are enough to form any habit. Is this true or just another fiction? How can I change my life in a month and experience visible results?
Sleeping only 4 hours a day brings a lot of discomfort, and the habit of watching videos at one o'clock in the morning remains? Constant delays are so annoying that the anger takes up? What about regular training?
Changing your life in words is much easier than doing it. What is so encouraging, forcing you to reach the final? Argue with yourself that you will not reach your goal. Perseverance, strict discipline cultivate character. It is not enough to develop valuable habits for the whole future life.
If a person lives with constant thoughts that he does not like to go to an unloved job, to live with an unloved person, to meet out of habit with friends who actually "look in the opposite direction", if a person is dissatisfied with his body and his inactivity, then at one point he is sure to visit the idea that it is time to change something.
But time passes, and changes do not occur. What's the catch? In laziness? Fear? Waiting for a miracle? What if you just call it a comfort zone? "Well, what kind of comfort zone is it if you don't like everything?— - you ask.
The fact is that every living being on Earth strives for a state of stability in life, and stability is what happens to each of us every day and does not change in any way. This gives us a sense of peace, a sense of security. And at the level of our unconscious (subconscious), we, like all other beings, also strive for this.
We strive to ensure that our days are similar to each other — this is our comfort zone. That's why it's so important for us to have a stable (even if unloved) job, that's why it's so scary to leave a person, even if you feel that you don't love them anymore, that's why you don't want to be alone, because you just got used to being in the company of people who are completely alien in spirit.
Often, our body plays a cruel joke with us, does not want to change its appearance (for example, lose weight), because we are used to living in such a body (and gain the dropped pounds again and again). All this is a psychological zone of stability, which means a comfort zone! And all of the above are rituals that allow us to feel that we are safe.
Why? Yes, because behind any comfort zone is a zone of discomfort. Everything new causes us psychological discomfort. Changing your place of work, place of residence, meeting new people, going to the gym for the first time and eating a vegetable salad instead of a chop is always stressful. Different scales, but stress. And stress is discomfort!
And then the most interesting begins. Everyone who dares to go beyond the comfort zone and meet new living conditions is faced with a choice: go back or continue the path of change.
And the one who chooses the second option will begin to build his new reality, and it will gradually turn into a new comfort zone, step by step, that is, this new life will become familiar, and therefore stable.
This test will answer the question of how much you are willing to change your life.
