Workout Wednesday


Have you ever experienced Flow?

A state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter; the experience is so enjoyable that people will continue to do it at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it.

-Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (1990)

What is Flow?

Complete concentration on the task

Clarity if goals and reward in mind and immediate feedback

Transformation of time (speeding up/slowing down)

The experience in intrinsically rewarding

Effortless and ease

There is a balance between challenge and skill

Actions and awareness are merged, losing self-conscious rumination

There is a feeling of control over the task
