24 Nov Feel Me Flow
In positive psychology, a flow state, also known as being in the zone, is when you’re fully immersed in an activity, energized with focus.
You’re fully involved.
Electrified with joy.
When was the last time you were in a flow state?
A Brief History of Flow
The concept was birthed in 1975 by a Hungarian born psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi whose research is dedicated to uncovering ‘the roots of happiness.’
His TED talk Flow, the Secret to Happiness on how he discovered flow is both funny and moving.
Flow happens when you’re stretched, enough not too much. Like a warm bowl of porridge: just right.
Hitting the sweet spot where you’re not over or underwhelmed by a challenging activity is the key.
Csikszentmihalyi crushes it here,
“The best moments in our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times… The best moments usually occur if a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.”
Csikszentmihalyi worked extensively with musicians, artists, and athletes who regularly found themselves ‘in the zone’. Their experiences helped him identify the eight elements of flow.
Remember, flow is not confined to the athletic or creative. Any person intent on mastering anything can flow.
Wishing you all the flow your hands and heart can hold during this wonderful Thanksgiving season!
All my best,
Legendary psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s famous investigations of “optimal experience” have revealed that what makes an experience genuinely satisfying is a state of consciousness called flow. During flow, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life. In this new edition of his groundbreaking classic work, Csikszentmihalyi (“the leading researcher into ‘flow states’” —Newsweek) demonstrates the ways this positive state can be controlled, not just left to chance.
