Not only is a flow state a highly rewarding experience, you will likely produce your best work during it. Undoubtedly, that’s where you want to be. Here. we lay out some guidelines for getting to that elusive state:
1. Develop your skills to meet the challenge: If you're not skilled enough to meet the challenge set in front of you, you'll experience a state of anxiety rather than a state of flow. Take the time to hone and develop your technical skills.
2. Set aside sufficient time: Make sure you have enough to really get into your work. If you allocate too little time, you'll find yourself spending more time trying to empty your mind than working and you may find yourself cut short. Find a balance between your commitments and private time.
3. Meditate: Five minutes beforehand is enough time to practise some mindfulness. Focus your awareness on your surroundings and try to quiet your mind of outside distractions.
4. Take a quick walk: This is particularly helpful if you live close to nature or a park. Many people find getting some fresh air in the outdoors to be a great means of calming their mind.
