The flow of life is all about mindset.

Does it feel like you’re swimming upstream?

Revisit your ultimate goal. It is possible that you’ve taken the wrong path – bucking the current.

Identify if you’re trying to force something. Stop wasting your energy trying to force things to happen. Do your part and allow the rest to take care of itself. Allow events to unfold in their own time. You’ll be less stressed, more calm and at peace. Almost certainly, that is what you ultimately want anyway.

No matter how much structure we create in our lives, no matter how many good habits we build, there will always be things that we cannot control — and if we let them, these things can be a huge source of anger, frustration and stress.

Remember that control is just an illusion. We never truly have control, no matter how much comfort we find in thinking that we do. So, the next time it feels like you’re fighting an uphill battle, STOP! Don’t fight, force or struggle. Just go with the flow. Allow things to happen in their own time. Enjoy the ride.

Going with the flow is an everyday mission of putting trust in your progress and passions.

It’s waking up with a will to be a better person, welcoming in new energy to share with others and trust in the future.

The flow of life is similar to a river — storms may disrupt the flow, but the water still goes on and the waves settle after time.

Going with the flow of life: stay present

One of the best ways to go with the flow is to create space for that which gives you joy. Not only should you allocate time for the work, activities and people that you love but you should also commit to being fully present when you are interacting and engaging with them.

Gratitude helps you identify and appreciate what you deem to be good and meaningful in your life. It also amplifies the positive affects of these experiences and empowers you to generate more of them.

How to go with the flow: immerse yourself

Do what you love, fully. How many times do you commit to something and only give it 50% effort or less? How much are you really getting out of it if it is only done half-heartedly?

The need to have full control over everything in life not only stifles the creativity and spontaneity that can lead to unexpected positive outcomes, but it also causes undue fear and anxiety.

Clear any clutter that is sucking up time, energy and other resources, then reallocate that capacity to what you actually want and need.

How to go with the flow of life

To start practicing flow, access the tools you need to be present, immerse yourself and lose control.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.

Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow.

Let reality be reality.

Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” – Lao-Tzu
