Who wants to be uncomfortable? NOBODY!
But being uncomfortable in a constructive sense, means that youíre developing and growing!

Itís true.
Letís illustrate this.
Hereís an example of two people. One by the name of Jerry, and the other by the name of Bill.

Example 1: BILL
Bill dreams of a great social life. Bill also has social anxiety and is scared stiff in approaching other people. He canít do this when grocery shopping, when taking his kids to a soccer game, or even when wanting to ask a girl out on a date. Bill also avoids picking up phone calls, and goes out his way to not make friends. Heís had a gym membership for 3 years and has only gone 10 times! He hates doing anything social and would rather be comfortable and safe at home.

Example 2: JERRY
Jerry also has social anxiety, and has the same fears as Bill.
Jerry has been doing research on his anxieties, and is determined to change his life. He knows that he canít achieve his life goals or dreams without other people. So, he makes it a goal to see as many people as possible. He purposely works out at the gym every day in the afternoon during rush hour. He makes it a goal to say hi to 5 people a day, and start conversations with 2 of them. He signed up for classes at his gym; Yoga and Weight Training. Jerryís even made a facebook page. Heís doing all he can to improve his chances of success in creating his dream social life.

Now, who do you think will achieve SUCCESS faster?

Of course, Jerry! Heís modified his environment with desire boosters, and made a commitment to change his mind set in regards to people and socializing. Whereas Bill is hung up in his old ways and is resistant to change.
Getting out of your comfort zone may be uncomfortable now, but the more uncomfortable you get now the more comfortable youíll be later!

The issues, or the threat to peace of mind will still linger in both, regardless of whether one has made a habit of facing them. When (psychologically speaking) a person rises above the idea of threat and sees it as something different than a threat, then there is no struggle.
Taking the mind to a different understanding in perspective or level of thought will require less effort than pumping iron and forcing ones self to do something you really don't want to do, unless you really don't want to sit in meditation. But then its less strenuous for some than going to the gym.
Yoga in the form of meditation rather than asanas can take the mind deeper in thought then the surface level of thoughts that are filled with ideas of stress.
Like rising about the tree level where your vision is blocked by the trees, to the view above where vision is increased and perspective is widened. Most thoughts of stress are like trees the mind can't see over.
A lot of stressful thoughts are just attachments to ideas and beliefs that are assumed by an individual, but not everyone. Each person makes the choice to associate ideas of self worth, difficulty, attachment, fear and success in their daily life. Some think its pre-programmed within the DNA molecule. I would say the DNA molecule can reflect the choices the mind makes, so the mind can alter some of the properties inherent in the DNA molecule thru the expansion of consciousness.
