Feel Good Sunday: How to enter flow state
Flow state, also known as being “in the zone,” is a mental state of complete immersion and focus in an activity. It is characterized by a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process rather than the outcome. Achieving flow state can lead to increased productivity, creativity, and overall well-being.
To enter flow state, it is important to choose activities that match our skills and interests. Engaging in activities that are too easy can lead to boredom, while activities that are too challenging can cause anxiety and frustration. Finding the right balance is key.
Creating a conducive environment can also help us enter flow state. Minimizing distractions, having a clear goal, and setting aside dedicated time for the activity can enhance our focus and concentration.
Additionally, being mindful and present in the moment can facilitate the experience of flow. By fully immersing ourselves in the activity and letting go of any worries or distractions, we can tap into our innate potential and experience the joy of flow.
In this TED Talk, explore what steps to take to increase your chances of finding flow. [Directed by Leah Putnam, narrated by Alexandra Panzer, music by Salil Bhayani, cAMP Studio]: https://www.ted.com/talks/ted_ed_how_to_enter_flow_state
