Where do you find YOUR flow?

2012-08-26-flow-balanceGreat article @yourbrainhealth from Dr Sarah McKay on the FLOW state. The trick, in my view, is to develop a career/business that allows you to operate maximally in the flow state, and to find a way to operate within a flow state whilst creating such a career/business.

Over optimistic? If you’ve never found it, think you are already there, or you have tips on where to look, please do comment.

Maybe it was just something you ate!

2016-08-10-19-43-26The excellent PSYBLOG recently suggested it may be possible to beat major depression with the right diet. Check out the article here on the Fix My Problem Now facebook page.

I do not give dietary advice but there is plenty of information out there about diet, exercise and depression if you search for it. Clearly these are significant factors when it comes to self-regulating your moods. It makes total sense to become more aware of how your feelings change when you change what you eat. It is quite apparent to me that the less sugar I consume, the more energetic I feel over the long term. The same applies with exercise, providing I find the right level for my own body. Diet and exercise should always feature in the journey to greater self-awareness and the elevation of mood in a positive and sustainable manner.

Meanwhile, although I will not tell you what to eat or which specific exercises to do, if you’d like to come and have a chat (and maybe a glass of olive oil) I am happy to help you get to grips with the thinking patterns which can trigger and prolong depressive episodes.

The first 30 minutes are free just so you can get some idea about how ‘Fix My Problem Now’ actually works. Then you can make up your own mind.

How does ‘Fix My Problem Now’ work? – The Video (with Harvey Taylor)

Lots of people have problems. All people, in fact. But where do they come from? And more importantly, why are they so difficult to fix? Surprisingly there is no such thing as a ‘problem’. I mean you can’t put a problem in a bucket can you? So if it isn’t tangible, it doesn’t really exist. So what is it? Actually, problems are just the problematic stories we tell ourselves. Which suggests that, if you could write a new story….

Here’s how.

Mars Espresso

mars-espresso-fix-my-problem-now‘But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? … We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organise and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.’

John F. Kennedy

And what if we each had a similar goal? One which served to organise and measure the best of our energies and skills, that we were willing to accept and unwilling to postpone. One which we intended to win?

What then?

Problems, Problems, Problems

People often get cross if you suggest they might be the primary cause of their own problems. I can understand why. No-one likes to accept blame and sometimes bad stuff happens that really is not our fault. But ‘bad stuff’ (i.e. a random event) is not the same as a ‘problem’. Bad stuff does just happen and will carry on happening for as long as we are alive. Good stuff will happen too!

So, if problems are not just the ‘stuff’ that happens, where do ‘problems’ come from? You might be surprised to know that ‘problems’ are actually just ways of thinking. And whilst you cannot change or prevent bad (or good) stuff from happening, you can change the way you think.

That’s what I do. I help you fix problems by changing the way you think. And I can literally help anyone to do so, anywhere, in any situation; change the way you think for the better. So long as you are willing to engage with the process, that is. When you engage with the process, you solve your problems, you become more influential in your own life and you begin to achieve the things you set out to achieve.
