How To Enter Flow State Quickly? Do This Consistently and You WILL Enter Flow on Command!

– Okay, so how do you get
into the flow state quickly? Well, it’s quite easy,
you jump out a plane. (laughs) Okay, that was a joke. I don’t know how well that
joke will be received. Will that be received okay? I don’t know. So, basically, a lot of ways that people get into the flow state that you’re probably aware
of is extreme sports, that high-risk will get
people will get people triggered into the flow state, however, you don’t need to do that. You can do other
activities to get yourself into the flow state. Ask this question to yourself: how do actors get into the flow state? How do writers be in a flow state? How can a football player
be in a flow state? They are not at high-risk.
Danger is not facing them. They have their own way
of getting themselves triggered into the flow state. Okay, but this video’s not going to be long enough to go through all of that. You can grab more information below on the wee bits of information. I’ll give you some free courses. However, what I do want to
say is this one thing that I feel is very beneficial, is that you want to sort of
set yourself up to be in flow. Okay? So it’s all about kind
of what you do before. The best way that I
recommend you do today, is start taking the measurement called heart rate variability. Heart rate variability will tell us where your nervous system is at, for when you’re going to
perform your task, your skill, your activity, your
sport, your profession, whatever it may be. So I may briefly explain: You have a sympathetic and
parasympathetic nervous system. You have fight or flight,
and you have rest and digest. Flow sits in a ______ between those two. There’s a consistent
push and pull going on between those two nervous systems. Now, heart rate variability will tell you if your body is in a perfect rest state, and how that applies for you
in a day to day situation. If you are not resting correctly, your body will be in
a stressed type state. Okay, so your body will probably have more cortisol in your system, you maybe have that sort
of cloudiness in your head, you maybe sort of got
injuries and illnesses that you’re maybe not fully aware of, or you are fully aware of. So if you set your day up to
try and get into the flow state and the activity that you generally do get into the flow state,
but your system is down, your system is starting
from a different level, it’s not going to be the same way. You’re going to have to
adapt to the instrument you have woken up with in the morning. It’s the tool that you have that day to get yourself into the flow state. So what I mean by this is,
well, is that if you are, let’s say, more sympathetic,
you need to do activities that are parasympathetic inducing. Okay? So let’s say you are
sympathetic, fight or flight, you’re ready to go, go, go,
you need to do activities that keep pulling you
down, calming you down. Okay, so just pull you down a wee bit, pulls you into that sweet
spot of being in flow. If you’re more parasympathetic,
you need a kick up the ass, you need to do activities
that pull you back up, and to be more sympathetic. So you have to tune into the
fact that you’re going to have to adapt to the instrument
you’re using that day. Do you understand what I mean? So like, you’re going to do
some activities that demand certain..will demand you to relax. Other activities will demand
you to engage into it. Do you understand what I mean? So by having an awareness of
your heart rate variability, and working through your heart
rate variability baseline, you will not only tune
in to the instrument, but you will allow yourself
to open up to the potential of getting triggered into flow. I hope you enjoyed this video. If you have any questions,

    I haven't thought about the idea of balancing the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. Definitely gonna pay more attention to it. Thanks a lot!

    Flow: from the perspective of affective neuroscience

    Individuals who engage in tasks that have a consistent and high degree of ‘meaning’ (e.g. sporting events, creative activity) commonly report a feeling of high alertness and arousal (but not pleasure) that may be construed to be due to the activation of mid-brain dopamine systems as a result of moment to moment perception of positive act/outcome discrepancy. However, a significant subset of these individuals also report a feeling of pleasure or bliss, or a ‘flow’ experience, but these reports are characteristic only in non-stressed situations when the musculature is relaxed. Since relaxation engages opioid systems in the brain (and covert neuro-muscular activity inhibits them), and because opioid and dopamine systems can co-stimulate each other (with dopaminergic activity scaling with the salience of the outcome, as well as attendant pleasure), blissful states require the simultaneous engagement of resting protocols and meaningful cognitive states, behaviors that can be very easily replicated in day to day life.

    A more detailed explanation (pp.47-52 and 82-86) of this position in the following open source book, ‘The Book of Rest’ on the neuro-psychology of resting states, found here.

    Great video, you gave me really useful tips! We can say that the essential thing to get into the "flow state" is to stop overthinking. In another video on the the subject the speaker brings forward an idea that is kinda the opposite of yours: if we overthink is because we have too much energy at our disposal, so we need to get rid of some of it.
    So, basically, he's suggesting that if you are an energetic person, you should do intense physical activity.
    May I ask your opinion on this?
