Flow is a feeling we have when everything is working as it should and no challenges seem foreign to us. Everything is easy and we do not need to use any effort or think hard. Instead we are totally focused on the task and we forget both time and space. When we experience flow we do not feel powerless but instead we feel that we are in charge of our life. We are in control. The purpose of flow is to continuously be in a state of flow, it is not about high mountains and deep valleys but about a constant flow. Paradoxically our performance often decreases as we strain and although our energy consumption is reduced the effect is greater when we are in a state of flow. We become efficiently relaxed. Flow can be created through coincidence but why take a chance when we can create optimal experiences through mental training. This is the first of four posts about flow. The next one will be on Wednesday, next week. //Marianne
