Flow- The Secret to Happiness
What's your flow? What's your happiness? Hula Hooping is one of the flow arts; creativity and movement collide into a fluid dance. The idea of flow isn't exclusively for hooping. It's in everything. It's in music, art, poetry, science, even love. It can be found in everyday life. But what is flow? It's actually a state of mind. The flow state is the most beautiful place the mind can be! It's like being completely present, yet absent from reality. It's like being free from the past and far from the future. It's like nothing exists but you and your passion. Imagine being totally consumed by your actions. You perform at a level of focus beyond consciousness; everything comes together so fluidly, without even having to think. You lose track of time and in that moment you are 100% yourself. In order to flow, you have to let go, of everything: worry, judgment, fear, inadequacy, perfection, everything! In the flow state, stress, anxiety, and depression can't thrive. Joy, peace, and creativity can flow through you. Flow is freedom in it's truest form. To me, it's the secret to happiness. Instead of worrying waiting and wishing, what if we graced the earth with the truth of who we are and the freedom of living out our purpose. Find your rhythm, find your happiness, find your flow. Live a life that's muzic to your ears! Love, Zoe Joy

In this state; as Aaron Ralston said “…You are just thinking about what is in front of you each second”. Ideas to help get into the Flow state: Idea #1 - Combination of skills and challenge; Idea #2 - Get room in your psyche; Idea #3 - Internal representations and Physiology.

Mihály Csíkszentmihályi: Flow, Creativity & the Evolving Self - Thinking Allowed DVD w/ Mishlove
NOTE: This is an excerpt from the full 90-minute DVD. http://www.thinkingallowed.com/2csikzentmihalyi.html In Part 1 of this three-part program, Mihály Csíkszentmihályi discusses the results of over thirty years researching the lives of highly creative individuals. He points out that creativity involves a lifelong commitment that begins with one's personal life and moves beyond to the larger cultural domain. In Part 2, Csikszentmihalyi discusses his work on "flow," a state of consciousness that entails a passionate involvement with life. This state is reported in similar language by creative people in all areas of life. It is associated with happiness and a commitment to a full and rewarding life. Flow is often cultivated through physical disciplines such as sports, yoga and martial arts. In Part 3, Csikszentmihalyi explores the application of the theory of evolution to human consciousness. He maintains that we are at a point in evolutionary history where it is incumbant upon us to take conscious control over the future evolution of the mind. We do this by striving for complexity. Complexity entails an openness to the cultural and spiritual traditions of the world in a manner that seeks the common threads of integration. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is a professor of psychology at the University of Chicago. He is author of several books including Flow, The Evolving Self and Creativity.

Happiness is all in your mind: Gen Kelsang Nyema at TEDxGreenville 2014
Simple, profound truths are the realm of this Buddhist nun. Her message? The gift of happiness truly lies within our own hearts and minds. Gen Kelsang Nyema, exuding a peacefulness that immediately connects with the audience, starts by asking three questions: Are you having a good day? Why? Tomorrow, would you rather have a good day or a bad day? She teaches that we cannot put our happiness at the whim of other people and of circumstances. If we want to be happy, we have to "stop outsourcing our happiness to other people" and cultivate a source of inner peace. What happens next is quite astounding. The whole crowd of 350+ people proceeds to meditate with Nyema. There's a little squirming at first, but as she leads the audience through a calm citation of how to rest the mind, audience members feel a collective relaxation flow into the room and through the people. Fascinating! Refreshing. This talk was part of TEDxGreenville UNZIPPED, held April 11, 2014, at the Kroc Center in Greenville, South Carolina. For more information about Gen Nyema and her co-presenters, please visit http://tedxgreenville.com/2014presenters In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

How Do You Flow? Secrets to Happiness At Work ✓
✅Join me and 5,000 others at LIG so I can show you how you can transform your career. Registrations are now open again; https://goo.gl/Z95zVB Watch next: One Simple Talk That May Change Your Career and Life: https://youtu.be/R-PAfs_4un8 According to Aristotle, what a person wants above everything else is to be happy. Nothing else. He says happiness is a central purpose of human life and a goal in itself. Every other goal we follow, wealth, beauty, family, money, power everything else we seek are only because we think they will make us happy. And in 1960s, an American psychologist, whose name I cannot pronounce but I’ll put it on the screen [Ciksentmihalyi] coined a term he called The Flow. Then he went out to interview over 1,000 people about what made them happy. He found that the common theme was the following; We are most in the “flow” when we are intensely focused on an activity that we choose, which is not under-challenging but nor over-challenging to a degree that we bur n out, it has a clear objective and that it receives immediate feedback. He found that people who are in the “flow” have heightened sense of satisfaction and completely lose track of time. Now, if you are a manager, a good one, you are probably asking yourself right now, how can I get my employees in the flow so you get the best performance out of your team? It really isn’t very difficult right, It’s their choosing, not overwhelming but not underwhelming either, it has clear objectives, and they are able to receive immediate feedback. And actually if you look at the most successful computer games today, you’ll see that they are designed around these parameters. So, in a way today’s most successful game developers are following what that American psychologist whose name I cannot pronounce taught us over almost 60 years ago.

One of the books that changed my life was FLOW by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.

In addition to that the movie Fight Club from David Fincher influenced how I spent my time. The quote "This is your life. Ending one minute at a time." sparked my idea to count in days, not years, to remind myself of how precious my time is and that I am the one who is leading.

Pleasure Vs Enjoyment/ Source of Happiness/ FLOW by Mihayl Csikszentmihalyi
In this video i explain a concept in the Book "Flow by Mihayl.Csikszentmihalyi" that your source of happiness is what determines the level/length of joy you experience. There are two main sources of happiness , pleasure and enjoyment. Pleasure is the short bursts of joy experienced when you biological needs are met e.g. eating food after being hungry , fufilling desire for sex or sleep. This joy is short lasted and requires no effort. Enjoyment is a deep lasting happiness characterized by growth, accomplishment and novelty. It is typically not pleasurable at the time however after overcoming this one feels a great deep long lasting happiness. Research by Mihayl Csikszentmihalyi , interviewed several thousand of participants from different classes, races, genders found when they described their happiness moment it was characterized by an Enjoyable experience.

How the Flow Improves Your Exercising, Happiness and Life (Get in the Zone!)
Have you ever thought if it was possible to always stay happy? Why doesnt money fulfill us? Buying a nicer car or new cell phone? Yes, all this is just temporary happiness and we lose that sensation as it simply goes away with time. How can we improve our health and wellness? Mihaly Csiksgentmihalyi (https://amzn.to/2tuRAGy) The Flow -Discovered that the only way to experience happiness in whatever you are doing is being in that optimal state of Flow. He states “a person can make himself happy, or miserable, regardless of what is actually happening ‘outside’, just by changing the contents of consciousness. One way to know you are in a state of flow is there is no time. Time flies by as you are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter. Your concentration levels are solely focused on what you’re doing and nothing else. You are so immersed in what you’re doing and enjoying it. Its an amazing feeling doing what you love to do. You have no regrets what you did, not thinking ahead and you are simply in the moment! So, how can the flow help with your workouts or overall health? https://amzn.to/2tuRAGy (Flow: By Mihaly Csiksgentmihalyi) Don’t forget to like and subscribe at WatzUp Today! https://www.youtube.com/c/watzuptodaynews?sub_confirmation=1 Join our mailing list for freebies (audio, video, books, etc): http://www.watzuptoday.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/watzuptoday Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/c/watzuptodaynews

Flow State: Can It Bring You Happiness?  #CreativeDebate
Flow State: Can It Bring You Happiness? #CreativeDebate When looking into what brings people happiness psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi found research that led him to believe it was not material wealth but activities that stimulate flow that made people happy. Flow state is a state of consciousness where one's sense of 'doing' seems to disappear. It is formally called transient hypofrontality because it is when areas in the prefrontal cortex slow down. In this creative debate we'll look at whether flow state can bring you happiness. While some believe it does, other believe it can cause harm through addiction. Does flow state exist?

Flow: The Peak Performance State
This video goes over the concept of Flow. ______Transcript:___________ Hey everyone! Last time we went over happiness and we covered a concept called flow, we are going to dive deeper into that today. Flow is a peak performance state. A lot of people refer to it as being in the zone. Have you ever been in a conversation where you lost yourself? How about working on a personal project where 3 hours felt like 30 minutes? Were you ever engaged in a sport where your movements became so fluid and coordinated you looked back on it and said, "that wasn't me"? If so, you've experienced this state of flow. Characteristics of this state include: one, an intense and focused concentration on the present moment two, a merging of action and awareness three, a loss of reflective self-consciousness Four, a sense of personal control or agency over the situation or activity five, a distortion of temporal experience. This just means that one experiences time in a different way than normal, either longer or shorter than what actually passed six, the goals are clear seven, the concern for the self disappears eight, the individual gets immediate feedback Now, you have a better idea of what flow is like, but why would you want it? Flow is an experience you enjoy in itself. But there are other things that make it so valuable. The statistics I'm about to tell you are from a Flow and Peak performance PDF by Steven Kotler, an expert in flow psychology and part of the Flow Genome Project, a project that works in the advancement of the understanding of flow psychology. One study found that top executives are 500 percent more productive in the flow state. Another found Snipers in flow learned 200-500 percent faster than normal. Creativity gets a 700 percent boost. This state is pretty easy to get into if you have the right conditions. Well, flow theory has an answer to that. Think about your skill level of a particular activity going from low to high, you are a novice an amateur, or an expert at this activity. Now put that against the challenge of the activity, one that is either easy, medium, or hard. Flow psychologists suggest that when the levels of both match, then we can enter the flow state. For example, I am a drummer. When I started i played bands like AC/DC and Audioslave. Their style is fairly easy, but at the time it was pretty challenging. They matched my skill level. Now when I play them and I get bored. Now I play bands like Tool and TTNG, which are challenging, but match my skill level and help me attain flow state. To attain flow, the activity also has to meet two other criteria: clear goals and progress, as well as immediate feedback. My goals at the time were to learn the songs and that would be measured by hitting the right 'notes'. I would get immediate feedback every time I missed a note. So there's three conditions to create a flow state: matched skill level and challenge level, clear goals, and immediate feedback. Those are psychological triggers, Steven Kotler also identifies three other categories of triggers: environmental, social, and creative. Environmental triggers include a rich environment, meaning a combination of novelty, unpredictability, and or complexness. High consequences or risks is another trigger. This is probably the easiest if you can create it. Snowboarding with an avalanche behind you will trigger this more than using the bunny slopes. The last environmental trigger is called deep embodiment, which is total physical awareness. The next class is social triggers and usually creates group flow. Think of the comeback fourth quarter in football. These include serious concentration, shared clear goals, good communication, equal participation, an element of risk (mental or physical), and familiarity. These ones are all pretty self-explanatory. There are also blending egos- everyone is thoroughly involved and nobody is hogging the spotlight. A sense of control and close listening are two others. The last trigger is when interactions between members are additive more than argumentative. Creativity is the last trigger category.This is a combination of pattern recognition and risk taking. Think differently and come at problems from unique angles.Outro: Today I defined flow, why it should matter, and how to get into that state. Next, we will continue our look into happiness and positive psychology and cover roadblocks to happiness and how to overcome them. In the comments, I want you to tell me What kind of activities help you discover flow? I appreciate you all for watching, Thanks for being you! Do me a favor and have a good day!
