Until about 6 months ago, I’d never heard of a flow state. I’d experienced it, but I didn’t know that it had a name.
Flow is when you are fully engaged in what you are doing. You lose track of time, you lose your self-consciousness and you are in a state of energised focus. You’re not worrying, yet you’re not necessarily happy either. You just are. Somehow you’re separated from everyday reality and floating along in your own little serene world. In just “being” and just focusing on a single thing, you can find peace, joy and a quietening of your mind.
I find my flow when I run in the bush, when I’m painting and when I’m practicing yoga.
Where do you find yours?
