Flow Strategy
You need a plan if you realistically expect to grow and improve toward your goals. Flow is the state of consciousness that contributes to high performance, it doesn’t just happen you have to create it. A solid plan to create Flow in your life requires several things to be in place to have it occur. First place to start to build your Flow strategy is mindset, are you willing to get uncomfortable to excel? You will need to adopt a mindset of pushing your limits in order to have your mind and body adapt and improve to be at your best. The book The Rise of Superman lays out 17 triggers that facilitate Flow performance. To create the mindset of growth we need to get crystal clear goals that we can commit to and reinforce our motivation. Without a clear and very specific goal you are just wandering through your life waiting for things to happen to you. Be proactive, write it down, refine your goals until they are so specific you cannot ignore them anymore. Flow strategy is a mindset of growth, stop waiting for life to happen to you, make it happen, start with concise goals then act daily to bring it about.

Polar Smart Coaching Training Tip: Take A Deep Breath
Give your body a chance to bounce back from your training. If you have been pushing it hard over the last few weeks the holiday can be the perfect time to recover and enjoy the reasons you train so hard. Let your body “catch your breath” and rest up for the next push to Christmas. Many times we just keep pushing each day and wear ourselves down without giving our bodies the opportunity to adapt and get stronger. Maybe the last few weeks has been stressful at work, or just really hectic as the modern life has become to so fast paced. Take the time to decompress and enjoy your surroundings and the people in your life that need you. This holiday take a moment for yourself and remember why you do all you do everyday. Rest up for the next big thing.
