Creative Mornings Brisbane | Flow
Ft. Sahara Beck
Date / Time
CreativeMornings is a free monthly breakfast lecture series for all creative types here in Brisbane, hosted at The Tivoli for the first time in our small capacity venue What's Golden.
Global Theme: Flow
Speaker: Sahara Beck
Roll out the red carpet… Brissie bombshell Sahara Beck is set to reign supreme with her glorious new EP, Queen Of Hearts. Lovingly crafted by ARIA Award-nominated producer Tony Buchen (Mansionair, Courtney Barnett, Montaigne), it’s fearless, flamboyant and brimming with seductive art pop, with Sahara’s sensuous voice shining front and centre. Two years in the making, it stars her previous singles ‘Here We Go Again’, ‘I Haven’t Done a Thing Today’ and ‘Don’t Overthink It’, which has already won over fans, radio stations and streaming services around the country.
Hot on their heels comes two new stunners, ‘Queen Of Hearts’ and ‘21st Century’. All suave synth and heady hooks, the title track sees Sahara spinning heartbreak into hope as she wrestles with love lost and finding herself.
It’s no secret that our modern-day world is full of distractions: Glowing screens. Notifications. 24-hour news cycles. At times, it can feel exhausting to try and get things done with all the bells and whistles competing for your attention.
In his book, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, psychologist and researcher Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi theorizes that people are happiest when they are in a state of flow. Flow is the experience of completely immersing yourself in a singular pursuit and effectively applying your skills to it.
When you’re in flow, your awareness of time momentarily dissolves. You’re in a temporary, but energizing state that helps you make progress with the task in front of you. So, how can you rise above the noise and get into flow?
First, quiet your mind and take a deep breath. Then, pick one task (yes, just one) and set clear goals for it. Move or put away any distractions around you. Lastly, take your first action. Whether it’s writing your first sentence, drawing your first stroke, or playing your first note — dive in.
Activate your flow and let it carry you where you need to go.
