What is flowing in you?

Listening to Yiruma’s beautiful song “River flows in you”, embedded below, I came to think about Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s work on flow. In this 5 minute video, Mr. Csikszentmihalyi explains that “flow is a state of mind or a state of experience that we feel when we are totally involved in what we are doing.” Mr. Csikszentmihalyi mentions that people, who have been in a state of flow explain it as “being completely carried away, almost like being in a river, and the flow of water takes them on.” People, who have been in a flow state of mind, say that they are very focused, and that the skills they have are fully involved in overcoming the challenge they are faced with. For more tips on how to prevent stress and increase motivation, click here and here.
