How do you do to find your feeling of good flow? Flow in life, flow in yoga, flow in jogging, flow when doing a task (like writing a blog ;-)), or other. I was just out running, and thinking about how different this can feel. Some days you just fly through the streets, feeling like you can run how far you want, in a perfect flow. And other days your feet feels like lead… so heavy, like you are not moving an inch, even if you want them to. You are missing the flow.
It is the same in yoga. Now that I have started to study and should build a good session of sequences in yoga myself, I am trying to find a good rhythm. So that the full hour or so yoga session feels like one big flow, even if you are starting slowly with warming up the body, then moving into more challenging poses, finishing off with Savasana. The good thing is that I can already feel if there is a flow or not in the session. That is always a start! 🙂
It is the same in other situations in life regarding this flow. If I should write a post on this blog or do another task, sometimes I just have this flow, full of energy and inspiration, and other times it is impossible to write a sentence or doing a planned task. The feeling of being in a flow is fantastic. You loose the sense of time and space, and you feel like you can achieve anything. My best tip to find the flow, that is working for me, is to do something totally different than what you need the flow for. Go for a walk or for a run is always helping, as well as cooking food, planning a meal or playing with the kids. Or, I start to do something that I really do not like doing, that is really boring, like cleaning, then usually I will find the inspiration and energy quite soon.
Wish you the best with finding your flow. Take Care. Namaste.
