#10 Flow: the science and psychology about being in the zone

Description

Get in the zone and find your zen - this week’s episode is all about flow. It may sound vague, but there’s a lot of fascinating science behind the concept. The team starts by explaining what’s going on in your brain when you find the “sweet spot” in an activity and lose all sense of time. They then explore how elite performers achieve flow in their sport through years of intense practise. And finally, they point out that you don’t actually have to be doing anything at all to get in the flow - there’s always meditation! On the pod are Rowan Hooper, Anna Demming and Graham Lawton.
