23M here. Anybody have any tips or book recommendations on not feeling haunted by your past and anxiety about the future and consistently stay in a “FLOW STATE”.I’m currently reading the Power of Now.

For over 15 years I held customer support roles in a variety of industries. At the same time developing skills in other areas; such as being ordained as a Zen priest and receiving an Integral Coach certification.
