1. The Comfort-Zone Exercise

    Get a large piece of plain paper and draw a circle in the middle. Inside the circle write examples of activities that you feel completely comfortable doing. Around the edge of the circle write down examples of activities that you can do but that you have to push yourself a little bit to do — those activities that may make you nervous in some way but not so much as to stop you from doing them. Draw a larger circle around this circle of activities. In the next band write activities that you would like to do but find difficult to get up the courage to do. Draw another circle around this ring of activities. After that write down those things you are far too scared to try but would like to do. You can create as many circles as you like.
