I saw this in my Grandfather’s apartment this past weekend and it caught my eye. At first, because of its nostalgic elegance, but then because of the word “comfort” - here defined as a narrow range at the intersection of temperature and humidity. Comfort is important, heck my name Noah, can be translated as comfort or comfortable. But there are two essential truths about comfort that can change our lives:
1- Growth and learning rarely happen when we’re within our comfort zone.
2- As we grow, our comfort zone grows.
One of the most profound things I find in therapeutic relationships is that they allow us to feel safe while we step out of our comfort zones. I believe acupuncture has the power to further enhance this quality.
If you’re looking to grow, or even just to get unstuck, chances are you may have to step out of your comfort zone. It’s nice to know that someone has your back while you’re doing that. We can have your back.
