Have you ever experienced the state of Flow in your life? Where you feel completely involved, focused and concentrated on what you are doing. Having a sense of ecstasy–of being outside your everyday reality. Being timelessness where you are thoroughly focused on the present and hours seem to pass by in minutes.
If you have felt this then you know how truly magical it is. What exactly were you doing when you did experience this state of Flow? If for some reason you haven’t “felt the Flow” fear not for it is accessible to everyone.
The most important thing that you can start to do is to challenge yourself and grow your skill set in something that you are passionate about. It could be poetry, music, painting, etc. For me, movement and exercise are one of the areas that I experience this “Flow State.” Even more so when I am “flowing” in nature.
You can see an example below.
The Flow Motion Life
“Of all the virtues we can learn no trait is more useful, more essential for survival, and more likely to improve the quality of life than the ability to transform adversity into an enjoyable challenge.”
The key for the flow
The key for the flow above is to develop a proficiency in the right exercise variation for you in each of the individual movements and then connect them to where it appears that they are one exercise, one flow, one experience. When you start gaining momentum you can tap into the Flow, where your body will take you places without you having to think about it. It is truly wonderful to experience. There are no obstacles you can’t overcome.
The question to ask yourself is where can you work towards developing more moments of Flow into your life. Do you need to put more time and effort towards developing certain skill sets or do you need to be more consistent with the skills you have already obtained? Finding the right coach can help you with both of these.
