benefits of Flow

How we use flow can make the difference between success and failure—a fully engaged life or not.

In flow, we embody a level of internal harmony and optimal level of functioning that propels us beyond our ordinary experiences. We discover our abilities, accelerate our learning, and our lives become richer, more enjoyable, and more meaningful. Put simply, flow allows us to feel our best and perform our best.

Flow is frequently labelled as the missing link between performance and well-being.

Flow is widely considered—both academically and anecdotally—as our optimal state of functioning. Athletes spend their lives honing their ability to find flow.

“Flow sits at the heart of the majority, if not all, of the greatest athletic performances”, explains flow scientist Sue Jackson.

World leaders such as Virgin’s founder, Richard Branson, have sung the praises of flow. Google, Red Bull and many other leading companies have integrated the principles of flow into their workplace. In fact, the McKinsey Global Research Institute spent 10-years interviewing over 5000 executives to discover that executives are five times more productive in flow. In learning contexts, the United States Air Force Research Laboratory have reported “a twofold improvement in how long a person can maintain performance,” asserts biomedical engineer, Andy McKinley.

In short, being in flow allows us to utilise our biology, acumen, and training as intended without the many barriers and distractions that typically limit our application.

“The Flow State is what takes life to the next level, for enjoyment and performance. It has been critical to reaching a string of excellent performances.”

Rebecca Soni – 6 Olympic Medals, World Record Holder


Flow can be experienced in any human endeavour, from the tasks of daily living to demonstrations of outstanding levels of performance.

Flow is known by many different names in different activities. Musicians talk about being in the ‘groove’, jazz musicians find the ‘pocket’, fighter pilots enter the ‘bubble’, coders become ‘wired in’, basketballers play as if they are ‘on fire’, and others simply call it ‘getting into the zone’. Scientifically, these experiences are called ‘flow’.

Recognising flow in our life and in those around us is critical to helping our mind and body find it in the future. The better we are at identifying flow the easier it will be to engineer it.

“[Flow is] where one becomes totally absorbed in what one is doing, to the exclusion of all other thoughts and emotions. A harmonious experience where mind and body are working together effortlessly, leaving the person feeling that something special has just occurred…Flow lifts experience from the ordinary to the optimal, and it is in those moments that we feel truly alive and in tune with what we are doing.” Susan Jackson

“It didn’t feel like I was shooting my shots, but like they were shooting themselves.” Olympic archer Denise Parker

Such experiences can easily become like blind spots in our mind; we know they exist, but we never properly stop to see them and understand them fully. Consequently, for most of us, flow experiences hover unexplored and unexplained in our mind, limiting our ability to find them frequently.

Over the last 50 years flow has been scientifically proven to be robust across different activities, skill levels, cultures, genders, ages, and demographics. In the last decade, flow has been studied more than ever before, helping to bridge the gap between science and practice.

Once flow is understood, we can curate the conditions that set the stage for its occurrence; we can create a practical pathway to find it consistently in our lives.

Put simply, flow occurs when everything comes together. It is a rewarding state of absorption in which control feels more effortless and our actions feel more fluid than normal.

“Optimal experience is something that you make happen.”

Find your flow


Whether you are consciously aware of it or not, you will have already experienced flow.

By identifying flow in our lives, we remind our mind and body what is important; we give direction to future experiences.


Our experience varies throughout the day. Between leisurely getting out of bed and running late for an important event, our experience fluctuates.

Ordinarily, most of us often feel that this fluctuation is a direct result of what life throws at us and what is happening around us. Yet if we want to find flow frequently it is important to flip this script. We need to stop blaming—or giving responsibility to—external events, circumstances, or other people for our experience.

“It is useful to remember occasionally that life unfolds as a chain of subjective experiences…The quality of these experiences determine whether, and to what extent, life was worth living” – Mihalyi Csikszentmihalyi

Flow is an optimal experience. And we are very much in charge of our experience, if we know how. Which is exactly what we teach you on our courses.

Our challenge to you is to start becoming aware of your experience throughout the day, and then see if you can dial it up or improve your experience, even in stressful situations or if the circumstances are not so favourable.


We hope you have absorbed a golden nugget or two.

“Richard Feynman was famous for his method of learning the complex. If you can’t explain it to a five-year-old, change your language and try again. Flow is an extremely complex topic that I have studied for years with many of the leading teachers around the world and I have not come across language and concepts as accessible as provided by the Flow Centre. I devoured the Certificate course and loved the way the language allowed me to inquire deeply. I was provided a powerful framework to create increased opportunities for flow in my performance.”  Steve Brophy, Coach, Trainer

“I now have new tools to enrich the classes I teach. I took the Flow Centre's online course and was very impressed by the quality and clarity of information on offer. As a trainer in leadership and professional development, I now have new information and tools to enrich the classes I teach. Recommended.” Nick Kettles, Coach, Trainer

“Cameron and the Flow Centre have helped me to take the first steps towards integrating the flow state into the next phase of my life. Understanding the mechanics of Flow has made me more conscious about how to consciously attain a Flow State in parts of my life where it doesn’t inherently surface. I look forward to a more meaningful journey into the future of my career thanks to the Flow Centre and all that I have learned.” Sally Frear, Executive

“Just wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed working with the Flow Centre. The idea of Flow was certainly new to me. Working with FLOW has improved not only my personal performance but also the way I coach others. I would definitely recommend this to anyone seeking improved performance.”  Tony Eldridge, Executive  

“After 15+ years of full time climbing and alpinism, whereby I accidentally engaged in the Flow State on a frequent basis in the mountains, I decided to take the time to learn the fundamentals behind flow. Learning the principals, science, and process of entering into the flow state has allowed me to consciously engage in Flow experiences on a daily basis. In the end I feel more productive and rewarded in many aspects of my daily life.” Zoe Hart, Professional Athlete

“After attending the course, I managed to identify and control or isolate many things that block and interfere with my performance. This course brought my understanding to a new level, where I am now able to navigate myself with my challenges.” Steven Thain

“Learning about flow has been life-changing for me in all areas of life. It will give you a tried-and-tested system to use in any challenge. I wish I had started much earlier with this, because you can learn how to find flow.” Lorraine Huber, World Champion Skier

“The course covered everything I had expected, and more. I knew quite a bit about flow already, but this course was the cherry on the cake. Not only theoretically but also practically (great exercises & an extra online program to support your learning during & after the course). The course inspired me to change some habits so that I can find flow in both my work and life. I would highly recommend this course to others, especially coaches and trainers, who are interested in challenging themselves to the next level of self-development, or those who are curious about how to create a resilient mindset.” Govert Semeijns de Vries van Doesburgh

“Thanks so much for the course! I knew it would be a good step for me and I’m happy to say that it was exactly the inspiration I needed. I am very motivated to continue my work and growth in flow.” Josie McKay

“I feel that I have gained a complete set of tools to help me find Flow in, not just in my main activity but in many areas of my life. I’ve gained a thorough understanding that being in flow is the balance between pushing yourself towards peak performance and finding enjoyment and well-being. This balance is something I have been seeking out in order to live a fulfilling life where I perform highly and feel absolutely great at the same time.

The quality of the course was much more than I expected from an online course. As the creators of the course are established and leading academics, it makes sense that the learning content was of high quality and level. Master’s degree psychology concepts are broken down simply and taught in an intimate environment, making it much easier to understand and engage with. There were a lot of small details which I appreciated about this course which you wouldn’t get with a typical online course thanks to the intimate environment. I would recommend this course to anyone remotely interested in performance and winning, productivity and success, well-being, leading a fulfilled life, feeling great, being completely engaged in an activity, creativity, meditation, motivation, resilience, psychology/neuroscience.” Jesse McCrindle
