Trying to force ideas, inspiration and creative problem solving while feeling anxiety, stress and God knows what else?
That right there is, "futility in a cup"!
No wonder we frustrate, procrastinate and move in circles at times.
That's not how this flow stuff works.
Here's what I would have loved to have known 25 years ago!
There are 5 BrainWaves that yield different results. Flow State is Alpha/Theta and impossible to reach while you're in spaces of self-loathing, anxiety, not sleeping and shame, fear, guilt. In these states we think we can force shit... and we do and it is short lived and well, forced. If you are not familiar with the 5 BrainWaves - school yourself, now! You can start here with a simple infographic to kick things off.
Performance, Flow, and Regeneration are created/accessed by feeding your five senses stuff. When it comes to accessing a Flow State, I have provided examples of exactly what I do Resource Wise and Exercise Wise over here >>
Soak Your Senses! - And I've taken the liberty of pushing things out 1 step further by scribbling another picture together that spells this out, yet again from a different angle: This scribble is titled: Soak your Senses. As in - soak your senses deliberately by feeding them materials that direct your body to shift into Flow.

#insideGROWTH is an online resource that explores the inside-you-kind-of-growth that yields more flow, less force. We are exploring three areas: 1. Self Healing 2. Self Development 3. Meaningful Work
...and organising a series of online workshops in February. Details as to how you can get involved are here >>
