You have probably experienced it before. You’re so deeply immersed in what you’re doing that time ceases to exist, there are no other thoughts, no distractions, just you and the activity moving as one. There’s no questioning, no ‘shoulds’, just effortless.
This is referred to by psychologists as a state of ‘flow’. To be in a state of flow is to be so fully immersed in what you’re doing that time ceases to exist, your mind functions as its peak and a sense of pure happiness permeates every cell of your body.
There are many activities you can do to access this state; yoga, meditation, running, playing music, cooking, socialising and surfing are just some examples. Sounds pretty blissful, doesn’t it?
