Flow in sports

What is Flow?

Flow is the state of being in the zone, when the athlete has complete commitment to the game, focus and feels exceptional comfort.

We’ve all seen at least once how individual athletes have exceptional performance and give their best. They were very likely in flow and this condition helped them achieve such an exceptional result. When an athlete is in flow, he has calmness, indulges in intuition and wins from that state.

The most famous basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan, described flow as a condition when he lost track of time, did not feel tired and when he was highly motivated.


One of the ways an athlete achieves balance is mindfulness. Mindfulness is a state of focused attention on the present moment and is realized through various practices and meditations.


Flow in a team is achieved when a coach sets goals for athletes that are in the motivation zone. The zone of motivation is when challenges and skills are in balance.

When the challenges are greater than the goal, with the athlete and the team, anxiety arises. On the contrary, when skills outweigh challenges, boredom ensues. The Just Flow program knows how to achieve that balance.
