COMFortable with being uncomfortable

When we become comfortable with being uncomfortable, we are vulnerable and open to change. And change is what we’re trying to accomplish.

Understanding that if we keep doing the same things, thinking the same thoughts, we won’t get to a new place. Like the ever-famous quote by Einstein “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”. Yes, we say never give up, failing just means we try again; however we have to change something in that new effort so that we get a different result.

When we go out of our comfort zone, that’s where the magic happens. Growing is often uncomfortable, I find that embracing that discomfort can be motivating. Which is to say, change your perspective on the meaning you’re giving to being uncomfortable.

So once you realize that a feeling of discomfort will bring growth and change, you welcome it. (Instead of the often misconception that there is a problem).

So, how does one get comfortable with being uncomfortable? Challenge yourself, by taking a risk & doing something uncomfortable. Even if there isn’t a direct result, the action of doing the uncomfortable thing will help build this skill. Focusing on being mindful and intentional with this feeling. Embodying it and welcoming all that comes up. With self kindness.

Try something new. A new food or activity. Go out with yourself or with a friend and try something new! Take a chance in an experience or social setting. Depending on your norm, take 1 step more. If it’s talking to that stranger sitting next to you, or across the room. Or if it’s offering help where you may not know exactly how. Even if you’re unsure, do the thing!

Say yes! Learn to say yes to invites, experiences or activities you’d normally say no to (Or use a lot of excuses for).

Be different! Accept who you are and your differences. Don’t try to blend in with the crowd. Stand out! Embrace your unique self! Get curious, ask questions. Talk about different topics with different people. Hear others’ opinions and perspectives, and it’s ok to have your own.

Change up something in your daily routine. Add 1 more thing or change the order. Instead of aimlessly walking from the bed to the coffee pot, try to get outside and walk barefooted on the ground. (It’s also very grounding which is great for you) or if you normally pickup your phone and scroll first thing in the morning, shift to meditate or simply do deep breathing with affirmations every morning, or do a quick walk around the block before getting into your car for work.

Make a list of 5 activities you’d like to do that make you uncomfortable. Make a promise to yourself to slowly (or quickly!) go through your list & complete these!

Once you become comfortable with being uncomfortable life is an adventure that you are in control of. I encourage you to add a little adventure to each day. You might just see some big transformations.



I believe in the transformative power of coaching because I’ve experienced it firsthand. From a young age, I held a deep desire to make a positive impact on the world, however, I was uncertain about how to bring that vision to life. Growing up I battled with certain difficulties, deep depression, self-injury and even went through a stage of suicidal attempts. I recognized that my current state of being, my thoughts, and my actions were not aligning with my aspirations. That feeling of not aligning with my true self threw me deeper until one day I had enough of being victim to my stories. Through therapy and diving into self-help books, I discovered the power of reframing thoughts, cultivating gratitude, and setting meaningful goals, which shifted my mindset. Today, I am a living testament to the transformative journey of healing, inspiring others to find their purpose, embrace their story, and creating change to lead a more intentional life.

After years of hard work, dedication, and continuous personal development, I embarked on becoming a certified life and NLP coach. With purpose and compassion, I help guide and support others in their journey of self-discovery and growth.
In my practice, I go beyond conventional coaching approaches. I have run and presented at numerous workshops and circles on growth mindsets, mindfulness, and various coaching skills. Through my unique methodology, I “blend heart and business” creatively, striking a practical and comfortable balance for my clients.

When I’m not coaching, I indulge in other activities that fuel my soul. I love writing, journaling, and blogging as well as learning, so you’ll often find me reading or listening to a good book via Audible. In addition, I greatly enjoy nature, which allows me to connect with myself and the deeper rhythms of life. At other times, I find solace in dancing, using movement as a form of self-expression and release; and listening to podcasts to further expand my knowledge and gain fresh perspectives.

One quote that I lived by as a teen and continues to guide my approach to life is, “Love life, and life will love you.” This simple yet powerful statement embodies the change that my mindset shift had on my life; it highlights the importance of perspective. By cultivating a positive outlook and embracing life’s beauty, we can invite love and abundance into our journey.

I am genuinely dedicated to supporting individuals like you in discovering your inner strength, overcoming obstacles, and unlocking your true potential. Together, we can embark on a transformative journey towards a more fulfilling and purposeful life.
