Making It Easier to Get into Flow State

CUSTOM JAVASCRIPT / HTML



You know when you’re in the zone, super focused on a task, maybe you’ve even forgotten about the outside world? - that’s when you're in flow state.
Flow state is when we’re so immersed in a task that we get things done with a sense of energization.
Getting into a flow state is more than just removing distractions.
How can you get into flow state more easily?

What do you need to get into flow state? 

If you Google, "how to get into flow state" you’ll get a lot of answers telling you to “do something you enjoy.”

Truthfully, to get into flow state, to be fully immersed in what you are doing, you don’t especially have to “enjoy it” or “be really interested in the activity.”
What you do need is for your skills to be well matched with the task. Usually, the skills that we are good at we enjoy, so people just lump them together.

Let’s think about it for a moment, when do you hear the term “flow state” most often?

When someone is doing something, they have practiced a lot in - a pro athlete when he’s on the field, a runner during a marathon, a chess player during a game. The activity they are doing is matching their skillset.

If you are struggling to get into flow state, there’s a big possibility, there is a gap between the task that you are doing and the skills you currently have.

Sometimes these skills require practice.

And sometimes these require stronger cognitive functions, stronger thinking skills.

Cognitive Functions

Behind every task, there are 28 thinking skills that we all use, (called cognitive functions).
Some of them are stronger, some of them are weaker, but the weaker ones are making it challenging for you to do some things - including getting into flow state.

Let me put it another way -
You will not get into flow state if you have weak thinking skills connected to the task you are trying to accomplish.

Which one of the 28 thinking skills do you need to improve?
That will depend on you and that task.
You can take the cognitive functions assessment to see where each of your cognitive functions are standing. www.lifepixuniversity.com/cf

Helping Yourself Get into Flow State

For tasks that you are good at and come easily to you (because the cognitive functions around those tasks are strong!) you’ll want to the following to help you get into flow state:

  • Remove distractions. Yes, you need to set yourself up for success. Clear your desk, put your phone in the other room. Do what you need to do so success comes easily.
  • Set clear goals. Getting into flow state works best when you know what to goal is.
  • Focus on ONE task. Your brain is not going to get into flow if it keeps on switching to there tasks. We are trying to get immersed into one task and get that done.
  • ​Know that it takes about 10-15 minutes to get into flow state. Don’t force it or be frustrated that you are not there yet. Your brain has to get into the task.
  • ​Some people like to create a pre-flow ritual as it triggers their brain to get into flow.
  • You’ll need intrinsic motivation to get into flow - that’s motivation from within. To develop the motivation from within do the 7 Whys exercise. Ask yourself Why should I do [this task]? Whatever your answer is, ask Why in front of it again. Continue this 7 times, at that point you should hit a deep reason why, something that will give your intrinsic motivation.

Getting into flow for tasks that are challenging

For activities you don’t like doing or the task is way more challenging you’ll want to:

  • ​Understand what part of the task is challenging if you. Get specific on which part exactly. Many times, we don’t like a whole task because there is one or two parts that are challenging.
  • ​The part that is ​challenging for you is probably because of weak cognitive functions. You’ll want to take the cognitive functions assessment at www.lifepixuniversity.com/cf and see which cognitive function it is related to.
  • ​To really get into flow state you’ll want to first spend time improving that cognitive function. It may take a few weeks or even months, so meanwhile you’ll want to do the task when you’re not in flow state.
  • ​There’s a strong possibility you can get into flow state for the part of the task you are good at. For example, if you’re struggling to write a book, you find it challenging to get into flow due to a weak cognitive function of giving a thoughtful response, however you may have an easier time with writing your personal stories that will be spread out around the book. Make the “goal” of this flow time, writing your stories and not a full chapter of the book.
