Finding Flow

the-daily-q-357


InQuire more: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi was a Hungarian psychologist who discovered that when people are fully immersed in doing something that they love and find challenging, they will experience a state of happiness he called “flow.” Flow is that state most of us have experienced, but few actively cultivate on a daily basis. Are you running? Or painting? Or solving a complex scientific problem?  By choosing activities that put us in flow, we choose happiness. And that’s a great way to start our week.  Read Csikszentmihalyi’s seminal book, “Flow” here, and read more about flow, happiness, and positive psychology over at the wonderful website of the WholeBeing Institute.
