    Body doubling sessions

    Observing others do things triggers your brain to follow suit. It's why you yawn when somebody else yawns and why we feel more productive in a library.

    It's to do with 'mirror neurons' in your brain. Flocks trigger these neurons to aid your focus and productivity.

    Supportive community

    Our body doubling sessions give you a virtual community to work-alongside. You’ll discover many other professionals who share your challenges.

    But it's about more than just support. Science shows that by stating your intentions to other people, you increase your chance of success by up to 95%.

    Distraction-free focus

    An attention anchor is a sensory cue or mental trigger that helps to refocus your attention and signals your brain that it's time to focus.

    A body double provides an 'anchor' for your attention, so that you're more likely to stay on task and overcome distractions.

    Despite the chaotic demands of modern work, the conditions that enable focus, creativity and fulfilment at work are actually known to science.

    FLOWN is designed to leverage neuroscience, social science and creative best practice to help you do your best work, while feeling your best self.

    Body doubling

    Body doubling is the practice of doing your work in the presence of others, so that you're less likely to get distracted. This particularly helps those with ADHD and other neuro-divergencies.

    Hawthorne Effect

    When you're observed as you work, you're tapping into powerful psychological hacks that make you perform better and help you focus.

    Flow states

    A McKinsey's study into peak performance shows that we're 5x more productive when we get into a flow state. Imagine being able to tap into this super-power every day!

    Rituals of accountability

    We need rituals to add meaning and structure into our day. Secular work rituals can keep us accountable, and make our day feel connected and worthwile.

    Play and exploration

    As well as reducing stress hormones such as cortisol, playful exploration helps to trigger divergent thinking – an ideal brain state for problem-solving and creativity.

    Green spaces

    There is tons of research showing the restorative power of being in nature. Getting out into green spaces is essential to recharging your focus and feeling fulfilled.

    "Sprint towards progress"

    I love FLOWN and encourage my team to get stuck into the platform. As a team, we use Flocks to focus together and sprint towards progress. It's a no-brainer for me as a business leader because it boosts their achievement and also improves their sense of wellbeing at work.

    Co-founder, Heights

    "A new level of focus"

    I ABSOLUTELY love FLOWN! The deep work sessions have been such a wonderful, transformative experience and addition to my day. I have met lovely people, found a new level of focus and wonder how I ever managed without FLOWN. Thank you!

    Jo Gifford
    Writer & Consultant

    "Achieve more than I'd do on my own"

    I've got severe ADHD so my work is often interrupted and I frequently feel overwhelmed. FLOWN helps me work calmly, get through my admin, and achieve more than I'd do on my own.

    Patricia Bidi

    "Block out distractions"

    As a developer, I really value being able to block out distractions and work in a focused way, uninterrupted, for blocks of time. I find Quests great for switching off, too!

    Jonander Elosua
    Full-stack developer

    "Moments of connection"

    What I get from Flocks: concentration, productivity and… connection! FLOWN has a magic formula that helps me focus, while weaving in moments of connection – wonderful for remote workers.

    Rachel Carrel 
    Founder, Koru Kids

    "Focus on big tasks"

    FLOWN is perfect to focus on big tasks. I get the headspace to get stuck in without being distracted by calls and emails. I get work done in less time than it would take me previously just by cutting out the distractions. Having that time in my diary means people leave me alone to complete tasks.
