How Embracing Discomfort can get you out of your Comfort Zone

30 Days of Cold Water Exposure | My Experience

Cultivating discipline through embracing discomfort in your daily habits is an amazing way of taking yourself to the next level through small daily steps.

Motivation and discipline are words that get thrown around a lot these days. I’m sure for a large majority of you reading this, they’re synonymous in your mind with each other.

Oxford defines them as the following;


The practice of training people to obey rules or a code of behaviour..


a reason or reasons for acting or behaving in a particular way.

The biggest distinction between the two is that discipline shows up daily. The rules/code of behaviour doesn’t really care how you feel on that day. You know what you need to do, you know how to do it and you likely also know the potential excuses you’ll tell yourself to try to get out of the task.

Motivation is fleeting, coming and going like the wind. Some days you may have it and feel like you’ve got the wind behind you and you could fly. Other days you might feel like you’re running through quicksand and nothing is going your way.
