You’ve heard it a million times: nothing good comes easy. But when did the pursuit of comfort turn into a full-blown lifestyle?

I don’t know about you, but when I think of the easy route, it doesn’t always scream “good idea” to me.

Too much comfort has its downsides. We might be tempted to dodge challenges, thinking it’s the easy way out.

The catch?
We end up losing a crucial part of what makes us human – the power to overcome tough times and the ability to tune into our higher needs. Being human isn’t hard because you’re doing it wrong. It’s hard because you’re doing it right.

The good news? Small habits can bring manageable adversity into your life.

Here are three easy ways to live primally and invite positive discomfort into your life:

Cold: Run the last 10 seconds of your daily shower with cold water. It’s a simple yet effective way to introduce discomfort and build resilience.

Fast: Try incorporating intermittent fasting into your routine. Begin with a 12-hour fasting window for complete beginners and gradually extend it to 18 hours, depending on your body type.

Detox: Undertake a 5-day detox to reset your system and prove to yourself that you are capable of resistance. This not only challenges your physical resilience but also strengthens your mental fortitude.

In a world saturated with modern comforts, embracing discomfort becomes a revolutionary act of reclaiming our innate strength. So, take the plunge, welcome adversity, and watch as your resilience grows. After all, in the simplicity of primal habits, lies the key to unlocking your true potential.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
