Get into a Flow State

Get into a Flow State

Revision WeekDay 3.

It's a great feeling in any performance, such as sport, when you get into a flow-state. This is when everything seems effortless and you are ‘in the zone’.  You are living in the moment, completely absorbed in the present activity. Time seems to fall away.

Positive psychologist “Mihály Csíkszentmihályi”  describes flow as "being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz. Your whole being is involved, and you're using your skills to the utmost."

The best way to get into a flow-state before you start revising or begin an exam is to try and start with an easy task or question and complete it quickly and confidently before moving onto the harder items.

This will help you get into that flow-state to build the momentum and move forward.

Your Revision Tips

Read the syllabus for a subject, see if you can respond to each part, if not, re-read the textbook and write yourself questions of which the answer is the missing bit of knowledge you had. Then keep going back and ask yourself the question until it is in your head.
