Want to be Happier in life? Identify and create more “FLOW” experiences

Daily Quote: People who learn to control inner experience will be able to determine the quality of their lives, which is as close as any of us can come to being happy.

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

” Life at its source is about discovery and creating meaning and constructive living…” MW Hardwick 

Reflection:Your strengths and gifts are the creative core of life.  What are your natural gifts?  Are you expressing your gifts fully at home and work? If not, how can you?  The peak of energy and vitality is the experience of it in everyday life. Flow, is often found where gifts and passions meet.  We use our gifts on things we deeply care about until we are fully absorbed, mentally, emotionally and physically, which is one component of living a meaningful life.

Self-Coaching Challenge: Choose one activity in which you have felt flow – complete absorption that allowed you to lose yourself in the experience. Time went put and you didn’t notice. Write down three words that describe the flow experience and what you got from it.
