Your ability to achieve a lasting flow state hinges upon your energy and health.

The four types of rest necessary for creative flow are:

  • Mental rest - Meditation, reading fiction and things unrelated to your work.
  • Social rest - Using social connectedness to relax.
  • Spiritual rest -  Going to a place of worship, or just taking time to think about the big questions in life.
  • Physical rest - Getting horizontal or taking a bath. Exercising can count as rest if you normally sit down all day.
