You know that feeling when you’re getting work done and time just seems to fly by without you realising it.
Be it when you’re writing, doing homework, video gaming, running errands or working on anything else
You’re fully focused and engaged in the task at hand.
And by the time you’re done, you realise that you accomplished so much.
That’s called being in the zone.
And there are some things that you can do to ensure that you get in the zone more often.
Get enough sleep.
There’s nothing that disrupts being in the zone more than a lack of energy.
Not getting enough sleep means you’ll be constantly nodding off and wishing you could just stop and get some sleep.
You’ll get distracted easily, be less productive and feel unmotivated.
Clear your mind and be present.
We’re hardly thinking about anything except the task that we’re working on when we’re in the zone.
We’re not thinking about what we’re going to have for lunch later.
Or how tired we’re feeling.
Or how much work we need to get done.
Be fully immersed in the present moment.
When the mind is free from thought, worry and anxiety, we’re more likely to be in the zone.
Let time do its thing.
Reaching the flow state and being in the zone doesn’t usually happen instantly.
It takes time.
About 30 minutes or so.
And during that period of time, it’s important that you put all your focus and attention to the task without any distraction.
So get enough sleep, focus on being fully present and let time do the rest.
You’ll be in the zone in no time.
