Feel.Focus.Flow.


The fifth and final installment in this series is about Flow. In positive psychology Flow is defined as"the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity." I agree that this is one component of Flow which I have experienced while doing many of the things that I enjoy, but I feel like this is a very limited definition. This definition implies that in order to flow with life things have to be happy and enjoyable and if they're not then flow isn't a possibility. I myself have had the opportunity to experience Flow when life was rough, when the waters were choppy and the waves were getting in my nose, so I'm here to propose a new definition for Flow.
