Welcome to Episode 368 of The OCD and Anxiety Podcast where we delve into the question - Is distraction always bad for OCD? Tune in as host, anxiety coach Robert James, takes an enlightening look at the power of positive distraction, mindful attention, and the concept of the 'flow state'.

Robert reflects on these themes by quoting renowned psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and sharing his own insights on the benefits of engaging in activities that challenge us just enough to completely absorb our attention - a state known as flow. Here we not only gain relief from fear and rumination, but also experience the fullness of our lives, bringing us closer to our values and interests inside of our obsessions and compulsions.

However, while positive, healthy distraction can be a potent tool against OCD, it's equally crucial to be wary of unhealthy forms that involve incessantly keeping busy or forcefully suppressing fears which, in turn, often exacerbates anxiety and exhaustion.

Join us to understand how to wield 'mindful distractions' that are aligned with what’s truly important to us, how to bring more compassion to your process and turn your struggles with OCD around. Inspiring, informative, and eye-opening, this episode reminds us about the strength in positive distraction and the potential it holds in helping you reclaim your life from OCD
