Tapping into your flow state
Being in flow during sport is an incredible feeling. There is an absence of fear, a weightlessness and an effortless rhythm—pure joy. In flow state, there’s no judgement or ego. You’re centred and totally connected with everything. Conversely, when you’re not in flow you’re out of balance and fear enters the body. You tighten up and it doesn’t have the same graceful and fulfilling rhythm, your timing is off and you feel resistance.
Flow isn’t just an experience for athletes. It’s ubiquitous. You can experience flow any situation. And more flow is proven to increase life satisfaction. If you want to feel happier, more alive and have deeper connections, you might want to tap into flow.
The purpose of life is to live it! Savour every experience, chase adventure eagerly in spite of fear, love like crazy, be real, be humble, be brave, be someone’s reason to smile.

Guess what? I don’t just ride a mountain bike… I do things like slalom waterskiing too.
