“Flow starts when you say yes to the fight.”

This week on the Oxygen Advantage® Podcast, Patrick McKeown and Daniel Pållson are joined by Rian Doris and Dr. Michael Mannino of Flow Research Collective, a team of doctors, scientists, athletes and entrepreneurs working to get the best out of human performance by researching the state of ‘flow’.

Flow is an optimal state of consciousness where you feel at your best and are able to perform at or near your optimum potential. It has been described as a state of rapt attention and total absorption. It is a state where your sense of time changes, your inner negative voice quiets and your self-consciousness decreases.

By reaching flow states we can perform at our best, whether in an athletic pursuit, during a presentation or performing creatively.

Rian and Michael explain the complexities of flow, how our brains and bodies change when in flow and how we can get the best from it. This is a very detailed and interesting podcast on what flow is, how it works and how we can teach ourselves breathing to better access flow states. If you are interested in reaching peak flow, then this is the podcast episode for you.
