I be in a state of flow if I am doing something related to my career , like sending CVs , learning English and looking for a university to study .

Have you ever been in a 'state of flow' while doing an activity?

Yes, when I was reading comics or listening to music. I'm in an estate of flow.

hello everybody
yes i have experienced the situation like that and the state of flow for many years just as Jackson mi-hay described in his interesting lecture , it was extraordinary incredible being in a hard condition working 8 hours 7 days a week without stopping and having a rest but at the same time feeling happiness. when i was listening to the audio i get the reason that how i felt happiness despite of the hardness es of the period .
thanks alot

Have you ever been in a 'state of flow' while doing an activity?

Yes, when I was teaching, typing some documents on the computer, so definitely while working I'd been in an estate of flow.

Yeah......that's my drawback!

GOOD

Have you ever been in a 'state of flow' while doing an activity?

Yes, I had while I was doing my website design, business cards design, listening music, sending shipping quotations to customers and doing sales and marketing plans for my logistics business.

I think when I'm going to do something that I love than I'm in a state of flow. For example,when I play tennis

What does "state of flow" mean? Can you explain for me?

Hello tunguyenprnt

That is what the professor describes in the sixth paragraph. A 'state' is what our mind or heart (when 'heart' refers to our whole being) is like at a particular time. The idea here is that when we are very concentrated and creative with something at the same time, we are in such a state.

If you do an internet search for 'Csikszentmihalyi state of flow', I'm sure you will see many other explanations of this idea.

All the best
