Create a Flow Journal12 May 2018
I’ve talked about the concept of flow here before. As I focus on writing and meditating more, I’m going to start keeping track of conditions when I experience flow.
The idea is that if I can find similarities in the conditions before, during, and after flow, I can try to reliably reproduce the mental state. Things I’ll track include:
- Mental state
- Duration of flow
- Activities preceding flow
- Activities completed during flow
- Activity when flow ended
- Substance of last meal
- Hours since last meal
- Hours of sleep the previous evening
This project will be similar to a decision journal, which I first learned about over at Farnam Street. You’ll note that I borrowed some of the entry items from their template.
If you like the idea, try it out. Email me your thoughts.
