Do you feel unfulfilled? Are you successful but still not feeling happy? Then this is the book for you! Find Your Flow is basically a how-to guide that explains what you need to do in order to be happy. But it isn’t a magical solution — in other words, you won’t become happy just from reading it. It will require daily work on your part and the author clearly lays out a four-step system that she personally vouches for.

This is a friendly and motivating book that’s determined to make you happier.

Mindfulness. The art of Being.

This all seemed slightly familiar to me. I used to start my morning in somewhat similar undertakings of Gratitude, writing things down, journaling and focusing on the day ahead. I haven't done that for eons, and this short, succinct work is positive, easy to follow and useful.
The four step program includes--
Morning Grateful flow: Wake up Happy
Forward Focus:Living with Intention
Total Flow: Train Your Brain
Nighttime Reflections: Become Aware, Grow and Flow

While I’m sure the majority of us are familiar with the concept of gratitude journaling, I was surprised at just how effective it could be when combined with the mundane everyday tasks that we tend to regard as chores or things to just “get through “.

These obligations become something a bit more sacred when they are given a mindful approach. We no longer “go with the flow” in life, instead we become the ones in control.

The concept of this book is based off of psychologically proven methods that

When it is snowy and cold outside, superspeed readers like me can read 150 - 200+ pages/hour, so yes, I have read the book … and many more today. LOL

I requested and received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley, the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review.

From the publisher, as I do not repeat the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it as they do it better than I do 😸.

This system is around 4 themes:- Morning gratitude - High value and high flow priorities- Scripting the day- Nighttime reflection

I'll lay my cards on this table with this book - this is good. As self-help books go, I'll admit to being a complete novice however, I have been practising mindfulness meditation now for 10 months, and 'find your flow' appears to apply some of the same therapeutic techniques, that when applied, can improve your life. The book itself is beautifully designed (very 'Instagram-able') and I guess this is for easy readability and can be put down / picked up when required. Sarah Gregg certainly knows h ...more

For anyone who wants to apply flow in their lives with four clear strategies that author Sarah Gregg outlines in very clear terms.

Find Your Flow was a great read that helped me remember to use my time on the important things. I definitely enjoyed reading this beautifully written and illustrated book but the real power came when I began to implement the journal system.

I have become a happier and more focused person after adding the journal techniques to my routine. Through frequent use of the journal system, I have also gained the clarity and confidence to embark on a drastic career change. My favorite technique that I hav

Beautiful and Practical Self Help Book

This is a beautifully designed book that would make a great gift for a friend or just a special treat for yourself! Find Your Flow is a very easy & enjoyable read, & the author does a great job of breaking down the psychology of flow into jargon free language. She uses her own personal examples which brings a lovely sense of warmth & connection.

I'm very pragmatic, so I loved the practical nature of Find Your Flow, & having the journal pages at the back mean

I had some doubt about this book when it started with this quote, which felt very exclusive and quite vague at the same time: "To all those brave enough to become who they truly are, stay courageous".

The book itself is a reformulation of what I have read hundreds of time in other self-help books: a) Short biography on how the author was living an unsatisfying life, had a breakthrough and then applied some life-changing method to be fully fulfilled in the present. b)List of those tips: morning g

As a busy working Mum of 3 girls, I am always looking for ways to better balance and organise my time. Find Your Flow is filled with interesting science based insights into how I could improve in that area. I really liked setting the high value priorities and high flow priorities - it's a good daily reminder to take time to do things for me, even something small, and focus on what's important on my (always huge) to do list.

It's a short book and an easy read but I think to really feel the benefit

I found this to be a concise, easy to read book that's perfect for busy people looking for a practical way to approach finding flow in their lives. While some parts of the book I was familiar with (expressing gratitude or as its referred to in the book, morning grateful flow and night time reflection) there were some parts which were new to me, for instance I found it interesting to learn about setting high flow priorities and also use total flow to train my attention.

It's a great practical guid

This book came into my life at a mysterious time, a point in time when I didn’t know or understand the significance. This is not just another psychology book that you’re going to read and forgot about in a few days. This book gives you real life steps to use throughout your days. Not only does it give you a step by step but it allows you to reveal your true passion and drive for your own life. The author, Sarah Gregg, makes you feel like you’re sitting down having a cup of coffee while she talks ...more

I read Find Your Flow because I wanted to find a new way to journal and support my personal growth. I needed it to be easy to implement in my day.

I really enjoyed reading the book and it honestly felt effortless because of the dynamic and warm way it is written. It flows well and has a calming design. You can instantly put the lessons into practice.

Sarah expresses her own personal stories, uses psycology and anecdotes in each chapter and offers practical tips to be successful finding flow. The

Find your flow has been fantastic help to me!
In the hustle and bustle of my ‘normal’ day; I had forgotten how to take a look around. This book has helped me re-focus. It has helped to point out my priorities, aspirations for happiness, and to reflect on what I am grateful for. In a way that does not feel forced upon, or annoying.
Find your flow is an easy and straight forward way to reflect on things that matter to me, and that I aspire to be.

A beautifully written & compelling book, crucial for the times we live in.

Before I read Sarahs book, Find Your Flow, I thought I knew everything I needed to about the subject.
How wrong I was. Barely a few pages in & Sarah's wonderful insights had me gripped. She dives deep into a topic that is often brushed over or misunderstood. And I cannot think of more timely and relevant information! Now I understand that 'flow' is the answer to many of our needs. And Sarah details step by step exactly how

A really good read that came at the right time for me.

Sarah drives home the importance of focusing and structuring your day, which is something I've often overlooked. I particularly enjoyed learning more about flow, and the psychology behind it – it's something that I'm sure I will benefit from on a new venture I'm undertaking and I really appreciate the research that must have gone into it.

I have been on a self-help / mentalhealth journey for a couple years now, and have been reading books similar to Find Your Flow, I always find them to be a bit overwhelming, so was pleased to see that this was only about 100 pages. It read a bit like a class textbook, and i did find my focus to be wavering quite a bit once I hit the halfway mark, but there was enough examples and ah-ha moments to get me through. And I was definitely a fan of the guided journalling pages at the back of the book. ...more

This book was really life-changing for me. I am a far-too-busy multitasking entrepreneur and this book really helped me slow down just enough to be able to enjoy every day life and be more present.
I love to structure and organize things into plans and lists, so it was easy for me to adopt the Find Your Flow journalling system. I have known about the concept of flow state for years, but never really integrated it into my life. I feel like I discovered the book at just the right time...starting a

Such an impactful and insightful yet easy read the author has compiled! We’re all so busy these days and frequently suffering from overwhelm, so the tips and clear roadmap provided in here have been immensely helpful for my productivity and peace of mind.

Flow is a topic that has been so widely discussed in recent years, but I never really understood it, let alone how to attain it. This breakdown is simply incredible.

Thank you netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

This book talks about the four things we should do daily to live a life full of flow.

1) Morning gratitude
2) Setting intention for the day'
3) Mindfulness throughout the day
4) Night time reflection

The book talks about scripting your ideal day. The information presented was useful and the book was very pleasing to look at.

Recommended as a physical book. Will make a good gift.

This was an excellent little read on my Saturday afternoon, especially at a time when things often feel very hectic during this festive season.
I loved the simple yet practice tips on journaling and it also reiterated the importance of reflection at the days end. Gratification is a powerful tool that we often disregard.
This would make the perfect gift to someone who is interested to begin taking the first steps to positive flow in their lives.

This book is something that everyone can benefit from reading!

Outlining a simple yet logical journaling method, I can see how it can help you be a happier version of yourself.

The book itself is easy to read and was very relatable. It contained a good mix of personal anecdotes and scientific literature which is often lacking from self-help books.

Overall, fab read for those looking to practice gratitude and self reflection.

Amazing book, so simple, easy digestible, light and encouraging. Ive been following the Journal system for some months now, and must say that purpose and meaning in life is not cluttered thoughts in my head anymore. Reaching my goals with ease and passion is now manifested everyday.
I really LOVE this method, realizing that it does not have to be that hard to be on a path. Thanks to the author- this spoke directly to me!

What a true inspiration. This book asks us to reimagine how we live our lives and take us down a path that we are truly better for “finding our flow”. Author Sarah Gregg takes us on an exploration of how she discovered this method, by practicing reflection, journaling, and more self awareness and the result truly is happiness. She has found and shared the secret formula! A lovely read for a more inspired life!

I bought this book because I was feeling stuck and Amazon showed it to me and I liked the cover. But you can basically get the gist of it by reading the back cover. I wish I'd read this book instead of Skinny Bitch when I was 17. I think it would be great for teenagers venturing into adulthood and the depression and feeling of being somewhat lost that come with it. No new info here, but still good info. ...more
