I want it . . .

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi proposes how it feels to be in flow – a state where wellbeing, brain integration creativity and purpose combine:

  1. Attention is focused on a limited stimulus field – there’s full concentration
  2. Action and awareness merge
  3. There’s freedom from worry about failure
  4. Self-consciousness disappears
  5. Sense of time becomes distorted
  6. The experience becomes its own reward

This seems a state, truly, to be desired.
