Flow is an optimal psychological state characterized by focused concentration and attention, absorption in the activity and a feeling of letting go. It's all about staying in the moment, in the present. When in flow you aren't dwelling over the past or worrying about the future. You are simply enjoying the here and now. Typically, people who have experienced a flow state will have a positive, emotional buzz afterwards and wonder where the time went.
Getting into flow can be tricky business. If you start looking for it too much, it will escape you. But if you don't prepare for flow before, during and after exercise, you won't experience it either. Here's how to open yourself to it:
First, be clear on your goal for every exercise session. It doesn't matter so much the kind of goal but that you have one. Goals focus the mind, which is crucial for flow. For example, some days my goal is to run for speed; other days my goal is to enjoy my surrounding environment. These goals focus my mind in different ways but both goals enable it to get absorbed, to pay attention, to tune my mind and body into the exercise experience. This keeps me in the present moment, the only place where flow will occur. So have a goal every time you exercise.
Second, flow is most likely to occur when challenges and skills are in balance. If the exercise session is too challenging for your physical and mental skills, you will experience anxiety; if it's not challenging enough, you can experience boredom. You can't be in flow if you're worried or bored. The best way to avoid worry is to make sure you don't overdo it or overwhelm yourself with too much exercise gadgetry. To guard against boredom, don't do the same kind of exercise over and over again; you just won't challenge yourself enough and in the right way. Avoid mental funk by raising the stakes of your activity: Move up to the moderate or high impact aerobics class, or start taking faster walks around the block. Try a more advanced slope on the mountain Just don't take the challenge too far beyond your skill. If you do, you'll be right back in the anxiety you want to avoid. In addition, you want to be in a safe zone physically so that you don't injure yourself. But by all means, raise the stakes. You'll create increased interest, balance challenge with skill and have a greater likelihood for experiencing flow states during exercise.
64 ounces of water everyday will help everything flow. What I suggest
is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle
Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will
get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin
C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons
if you get bored. Click

How willing are you to learn something new? How open are you to new perspectives?
Only when we’re open can we really hear what’s being said or really see what’s happening or really experience the moment.
Openness demands that we be willing to move to places we’ve never been before. It asks us to continually challenge the foundations of our belief systems so we can test out new ideas. And to do that, we need to accept insecurity.
