286 // The Positive Impact of Discomfort
Hello and welcome to episode 286 of The Mindful Kind podcast.
In this episode, you'll learn about discomfort and how it can increase gratitude, happiness, and life satisfaction. Here are the key take-aways:
- People who experience adversity are more likely to appreciate small pleasures (as long as their adversities are in the past)
- Too much of a good thing can become unpleasant
- Discomfort can lead to an increase in mindfulness and a decrease in stress
The strategy I share for embracing more discomfort is to go outside your comfort zone and try new things, then allow yourself to process challenging emotions that might arise along the way.
