I am a huge fan of The Window of Tolerance, created by Dr. Dan Siegel, a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry. The Window of Tolerance is the space where you can handle stress in a healthy way and still be able to function and thrive. When we move out of our window of tolerance, we either shut down or become overloaded.

I realized that when that happens to me, it's always because I'm moving out of my comfort zone. Because I have depression, anxiety, and social anxiety - my comfort zone can be pretty small. There are even days when I feel like my whole life is one long path of discomfort.

They explore how many of us have atypical comfort zones.
The typical comfort zone model goes like Comfort Zone -> Fear Zone -> Learning Zone -> Growth.

I don't experience it like that and I realized why I absolutely HATE when people tell me to step out of my comfort zone - it's because in addition to the Fear Zone (which is conquered by self-confidence, motivation, and believing in yourself) I also have, what I'm calling the Dysregulation Zone: intense fear, panic, anger, and anxiety.

That dysregulation zone is another barrier that's made up of anxiety, trauma, or brains that just don't work in a typical way.

And all this time I've carried around this frustration with "step out of your comfort zone" because they always make it seem so easy and that I'm lacking bravery or confidence. And I really didn't realize until a few days ago how deeply that's affected me and why.

So instead of focusing on getting out of your comfort, these worksheets are about making your comfort zone bigger, enhancing your overall feelings of stability and security, and finding coping skills to make the dysregulation zone smaller so that when it comes to stepping out of your comfort zone it doesn't feel so impossible!

This is a digital file that you can print from your home computer or have professionally printed. Nothing will be sent to your home. You can fill this in digitally (using Adobe Reader, Xodo, or Goodnotes) or you can print it out from your home computer - whichever works best for you!

Can I Get A Physical Copy?

Unfortunately, I don’t have the resources to print and ship all of my workbooks. If you want a physical copy you are welcome to purchase the digital file and then have it printed at Staples, The UPS Store, FedEx, or any other printing company as long as it’s just for your own personal use!

All of my products also have Digital Fill-In Enabled, meaning that you can fill them in straight from your phone/tablet/or computer.

Apps like Adobe Reader, XoDo, or GoodNotes allow you to “write” inside the PDF, so you can carry it around with you whenever you need it!

I Am Not A Mental Health Professional

While I LOVE talking about mental health - I am NOT a professional. All of my worksheets come from lived experience which makes them unique but it's also important to note that they aren't a replacement for therapy. I'm not a therapist and I always recommend you work through my workbooks with one!

Printing

My workbooks are in standard US Letter Size (unless otherwise specified) and should be printed on standard US Letter Size Paper.

When printed, the colors might be darker or vary from what you see on your computer screen.
