Creating Flow: Finding Activities that Balance Challenge and Skill

Flow is a state of consciousness where action and awareness become one. It’s when a person is so fully immersed in an activity that they lose their sense of time and self. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi calls it an “optimal state of experience.”

“Flow” is a concept in psychology first coined by Hungarian-American psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi in 1975.

Flow is defined as a state of consciousness where one is completely absorbed in an activity, along with a sense of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment, often to the point of losing one’s sense of time and self.

In everyday language, people use a variety of phrases to describe states of flow such as being “in the zone,” “on the ball,” “in a groove,” “on fire,” or “on one’s game.”
