“Being in the Zone”, “The Forever Box”, “Deep Now” … Flow has many names. They all mean the same thing: The state of total presence. What is Flow actually, how does it work and is it hackable?
Have you ever reached the point during your run, when you’re just running? Not thinking of the pain in your legs, being out of breath, or for how long you’ve already been moving? You probably reached the “State of Flow” that is called a “Runners High”. This means being so focussed on what you’re actually doing, that you lose the sense for time, pain, expectations, or anything else that usually holds you back from performing better or being more creative. You can’t force the State of Flow. But if you understand what happens when we fall into the Deep Now you can change how you approach life for the better.
