When was the last time you got lost in the moment while doing something you enjoyed? Did time seem to fall away? Did you lose awareness of the world around you? It turns out that these moments – called flow – are really good for us!
Flow is associated with improved mood, creativity, motivation and other mental health benefits.
Finding flow is sometimes challenging in a busy and hectic world so it can be helpful to recognize its component parts.
A flow state is an ideal blend between skill and challenge – too much or too little of either – can lead to things like boredom or anxiety. So play around with flow in your life and where you might find it.
