Broaden Your Comfort Zone

Humans are adaptable, we don't need to limit ourselves to a narrow range of comforts.

"Broaden Your Comfort Zone"

We are so concerned with being normal, and living up to the expectations of normal, that we have forgotten how adaptable we are.

For example, the most basic things such as the air temperature around us have to be "just right" - if it is warmer than 72oF or 22oC, we turn on the air conditioner, and if it is colder than 60oF or 15oC we turn on the heat, and in both cases we avoid going outside if the air outside is not within that narrow range.

However, except for the most frail amongst us, the human body is perfectly capable of adapting to working 100oF or 30oC heat, and with just a couple layers of clothing we can stay outside for hours on end at zero F or -20oC. I know about the cold personally, being Canadian and having gone camping in January when it was -30oC... for three days we were fine, never even shivered once. Ohhh, but my neighbor says she "cannot tolerate the heat"... well no wonder - she doesn't go outside often enough to adapt as spring changes to summer.

Other "adaptations" we embrace include sunblock. We heard on the news a few decades ago, and every summer since, that due to some of the chemicals used in human endevours, the sunlight is now going to cause us skin cancer. Immediately, I thought it was either a hoax, or if not then we had crossed a line where our stupid chemistry was causing conditions on earth that were unfriendly to life, and therefore it would be insane to adapt to them, but rather we must stop doing that stupid chemistry. With that in mind, it would be appropriate to REFUSE to wear sunblock and just endure the consequences because it might be an incentive to stop doing that stupid chemistry. Or, maybe it was a hoax designed to sell sunblock - anything with a sale attached is suspicious to me.

So, here we are 3 decades later and after getting a deep tan every single year since, but avoiding sunburns, I have no signs of skin cancer, or even wrinkles [I am over 50 years old now too, so wrinkles should be showing up anyhow]. Also, I noticed that the one part of my body that gets the MOST SUNLIGHT is the front of my knees, probably due to bike riding in short pants where the knees are allways pointing up. Despite that the knees are so exposed to sunlight, which is true for most people, there are NEVER any cases of people getting "knee-skin cancer"; it even sounds funny to say "'knee-skin cancer" because it is so foreign a concept.

So I have come to the conclusion that we are better off to embrace our adaptability, get out in the heat and cold, reject the protective accoutrements when they come with a sales pitch such as air conditioning, sunblock, statin drugs, and so on [but seat belts and bike helmets, and warm clothes on cold days do make sense].

Enjoy!
