Don't Allow Coronavirus To Be Your Next Excuse for Using Porn

Here is a list of 'flow' type activities that I often give to clients when they say they have no hobbies or get bored and instead turn to porn. 

Even with the restrictions imposed during the Coronavirus period you can see there is still 80% of things we can still do!  You can see from my list only a few things are crossed off. 

Flow is a word used to describe an optimal or peak experience.  If you can master regular use of good flow experiences then you will have one of the most potent weapons against addictive behaviours on your side.  By achieving flow experiences you will boost your feel-good neuro-chemicals so that negative feeling states are less likely to occur and when they do can be managed with ease. 

What makes flow?

If you are in a state of flow you are said to be experiencing the following;

·        Complete concentration and focus on the task to the exclusion of other things

·        Clarity of goals and reward in mind and immediate feedback on accomplishment towards those

·        Distortion of time (speeding up/slowing down of time)

·        The experience is intrinsically rewarding and is an end in itself

·        Effortlessness and ease due to training, practice and familiarity

·        There is a balance between challenge and skills – the skills are well developed, enough to push the challenges within the activity

·        Actions and awareness are merged so there is less conscious thinking

·        There is still a feeling of control over the task – confident and semi-automatic
