‘Flow state’ has been a phenomenon that athletes and elite business leaders have been chasing for centuries.
It’s that feeling of being in the zone where you’re entirely focused, and everything else disappears. You’re in complete control, and everything seems to happen effortlessly.
For athletes, it’s the difference between winning and losing. For business leaders, it’s the difference between success and failure.
And now, there’s a science to show that flow state is real. Brain scans of people in a flow state show that they have significantly higher levels of dopamine and norepinephrine – two key chemicals that are responsible for focus, concentration, and motivation.
However, the problem remains.
Flow state is a rare and elusive beast. It’s hard to chase and even harder to catch. Some ‘gurus’ 10-point plans or courses on how to find flow state and keep it while you work.
Fortunately, a recent discovery has found a shortcut. A hack that can help you to reach flow state effortlessly and stay there for as long as you want.
This shortcut is called brainwave entrainment.
Brainwave entrainment is a method of using sound waves to influence the brainwaves. By exposing the brain to specific frequencies, you can ‘entrain’ the brainwaves into a desired state.
For example, if you want to reach a flow state, you would expose your brain to a frequency that is known to induce flow state.
There are many different frequencies that can be used for different purposes. But the most important thing is to find a frequency that works for you.
And that’s where binaural beats come in.
Binaural beats are two different frequencies played together through headphones. The brain then responds by creating its own third frequency – the difference between the two original frequencies.
For example, if you expose your brain to a frequency of 100 Hz and another frequency of 110 Hz, your brain will create a third frequency of 10 Hz.
This third frequency is what entrains the brainwaves into the desired state.
So, if you want to reach flow state, you would expose your brain to a binaural beat frequency that is known to induce flow state.
There are many different binaural beat frequencies that can be used for different purposes. But the most important thing is to find a frequency that works for you.
