Finding Flow

Finding Flow

I strongly believe we all need space and time in our lives. The space to find ourselves in flow state. That feeling of i-have-lost-all-track-of-time immersion. 

As many Americans, we have a need for productivity, the hustle culture and an over-achieving lifestyle. It has been sold to us and presented as the way to be. This had caused many of us to have anxiety. That coupled with global climate issues, viruses, politics, it can all be too much. Leaving us feeling helpless and confused. What to do? Self-care is more important now than ever. Taking time to nourish our bodies, our spirits and our souls. Our minds and hearts!

Developing meaningful connections with ourselves and others helps put the world in perspective. Finding flow, taking time to reflect on the best things in life, embracing gratitude and having a positive mindset will get you through anything. Creating space and down time, also known as self-care, hobbies or goofing off, will give us the much-needed balance we crave. 

Unplugging, stepping away from a screen (TV, the phone, the tablet and computer) resting our eyes and minds will actually probably do as much for us as a workout, glass of wine, or medication. Developing a habit of allowing more space and time in your day will do wonders. The world moves fast and we often have so much to process it can be daunting. Taking time to integrate and not always being in a hurry makes for a richer experience. Really exhaling and letting go at least once a day, even for a half hour, you will find a new sense of awareness, a bit of peace in a chaotic mind.

Doing something with our hands and getting into flow state is as simple as listening to a record, having coffee or tea with a friend, writing a letter or sketching. What is your hobby? How do you unwind? How do you charge your batteries? Step away to solve a problem? We would love for you to share with us what has worked or not worked for you.

Great post! I always think of flow as the sophisticated cousin of mindfulness. So interesting when one is in flow how time ceases to matter and we just are! Hope you guys are doing well these days. Expect to be in Florida next winter and will certainly let you know so we can visit!
