Autonomy is the desire for the freedom required to pursue your passion and purpose. It's the need to steer your own ship. To get the boost and drive that autonomy provides, you need the freedom to control your sleep, work, and exercise schedule. #peakperformance #flowscience
Grit: A personality trait characterized by perseverance and passion for achieving long-term goals. Individuals high in grit are able to maintain their determination and motivation over long periods despite adversity. Grit is typically a better predictor of success than talent.
Can flow states help with autoimmune diseases? It’s hypothesized that the neurochemicals found in flow can boost the immune system. They also reset the nervous system. Flow may also enable the brain to form new neural networks, which can possibly lead to better health outcomes.
In a lengthy series of experiments, psychologists Edward Deci and Richard Ryan discovered that intrinsic motivation (a term that is synonymous with drive) is much more effective than extrinsic motivation in every situation excluding those where our basic needs haven’t been met.

Myth: We only use 10% of our brain. In flow––a state of peak performance––the brain actually starts to deactivate. Conscious processing is slow & energy-intensive. Subconscious processing is extremely quick & efficient. In flow, we trade conscious for subconscious processing.

Active recovery is the fourth stage of the flow cycle: Struggle > Release > Flow > Recovery ^ The word “active” is operative here. Those on the flow path don’t leave recovery to chance. If you don’t take charge of your active recovery time, time will take charge of you.
There are perks to embracing stress and seeing it as a performance enhancer. When you stretch, you take excursions outside of your comfort zone. The more often you do this, the more the body adapts. Watch the full episode here: #peakperformance #flow #inthezone

Flow is described as a state of 'effortless effort,' where we feel like we're propelled through an activity, and everything else seems to disappear. More specifically, flow refers to any moments of rapt attention and total absorption.
