Simply, your comfort zone is a behavioural space where your activities and behaviors fit a routine and pattern that minimizes stress and risk. It provides a state of mental security. It is this autopilot most of us are trapped in during our everyday lives. We are often not even aware of the fact that we are in this cage of mental conditioning. You benefit in obvious ways: regular happiness, low anxiety, and reduced stress. There are people who thrive on snap decisions, others are more comfortable weighing all of the possible options several times, over and over again. Sometimes making a snap call is in order, just to get things moving.
