One of our favorite things to do in the summer is to take family and friends out to a nice restaurant for some fun, tasty food and a great date night. It is a great way to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life—especially if you don’t want to take the time and money to get out of the house. But when we take a family out to eat, the fun is often interrupted by our thoughts.
In our experiences, our mind is often caught up in the moment and focused on the food we are eating and the conversation going on around us. The rest of the world fades away and we are left with only the people, conversations, and food on our plates. It is a classic example of what psychologists call “flow.
I call this flow because we are constantly in flow state when we are at an event. No one needs to ask us what we think. In the flow state, the other two senses, the sight and the touch, are also sharpened. Our body, mind, and spirit are all operating in perfect balance. In the flow state, we feel the best food and the best conversation. Most people don’t realize that they are in this state.
The truth is that this flow state isn’t always about enjoying your food or your company. There are times when your body, mind, and spirit have to work together for survival, and that can mean being mindful of your surroundings. The people you are with, the conversation you are having, the food you are eating, the music you are listening to, the people you are seeing and being with during the flow state are all important.
When you’re in a flow state, it’s all about the state of your body. The mind and body become one. All of your senses are on full alert, a state in which you are totally engaged and completely in the moment. That can mean different things for different people, and how you react to a situation can be determined by how your body is feeling.
The thing about flow is that it is not a state where you are fully aware of all the things that are going on around you because the things that are going on are just too overwhelming. As a person who has been in flow states for years, I know that I never feel fully engaged with the world around me, but in those moments I am fully conscious and present.
For me, the transition into a flow state is a transition into a different kind of reality, as opposed to the one that I am accustomed to. I can sometimes feel like I have been living in the ‘world of the flow’ for a long time and I feel like there is a lot to do and so I just kind of let the world go by and I am fully aware of all the things that are happening around me.
It’s hard to explain what I mean by this, but it’s like a heightened awareness of all that’s around you and what you can do with it and how it affects you. And I think it’s something that we all have to learn to acknowledge and accept.
