5 Tips for being in the flow!


  • Stop!

Allow yourself to Allow yourself to take moments of being present during the ‘busyness’ of your day. 

Just stop what you’re doing even if it’s for a moment or two and look for something that you find beautiful, a photo, a flower, the scenery, your loved one. And just ‘drink in’ a sense of gratitude or appreciation for the beauty that they have bought to your life in that moment. If you can, feel your heart expand with love. take mAllow yourself to take moments of being present during the ‘busyness’ of your day.

  • Breathe!

Our breath is such a vital part of life (this goes without saying!) . .  but when we can bring our awareness to it, particularly during times of stress or frustration then we are able to return to calm and flow quicker than if we don’t pay any attention to it. 

So, let’s take a deep breath together now . . . breathing in through your nose and gently out through your mouth.

Right, let’s take another . . .  and as you breathe out just allow any tension that you’ve got going on in your body  to release with your breath. 

Practice your breathing - it’s such a great tool for bringing you back to the here and now.

  • Meditate

This really can be as simple as sitting in a quiet space for a few minutes while your eyes are gently closed.

 The idea is basically to empty your mind of all the “have tos”, “shoulds” and “musts” and sit with “no thing”, or “no thought” for those few moments. 

This does take practice without doubt.  Your mind (who loves to be in control) will do all sorts of “tricks” to get you thinking again -  in particular all the reasons why this isn’t working! But if you practice and develop your skills, this will create a valuable and precious time for yourself.

  • Journal

Keeping a journal is a great way of noticing (and reminding yourself when you look back over it) how you’re feeling, what you’re struggling with, what’s good in your life, what opportunities keep presenting themselves to you and so much more.

A journal offers you the ‘safe’ space to write your deepest desires, dreams, worries and fears. By getting them down onto the page . . . it frees your mind, heart and body from the heaviness of carrying them as well as allowing you to be more in the moment and flow.

Also as you journal and reflect back over your day, you can see if you have ‘reacted’ to things that may have pushed your buttons or ‘responded’ to them. I would suggest that ‘responding’ offers more opportunity to be in the flow.


  • Be aware!

When you begin to take note of the synchronicities that occur within your life and your environment - which may be something as simple as you think of someone - and then they contact you . . .or it may be that you begin to see recurring names, places, themes. Be aware!  Be awake to this!

As once you begin to acknowledge these phenomena, they seem to grow and possibilities show themselves in ways that would previously have been unimaginable. This is what being in the flow offers you
