Brain and Flow, 3

Researcher Mihály Csikszentmihalyi and author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience has described the flow experience as one in which individuals perceive: 

  • ·       Very little sense of the passing of time or it seems to be flying by
  • ·       Whatever you are doing is clicking along almost effortlessly
  • ·       The tasks or situation is rewarding and you’d like it to keep going
  • ·       You have some control over the task
  • ·       You are easily and pleasurably absorbed in the task—are in the zone or in the groove—and dislike interruptions

 Can you identify a time or times when this was true for you? What were you doing when this occurred?
