What is it about?



This author has conducted extensive research on the concept of optimal experiences, or those moments in life when people report feelings of concentration and enjoyment. The key to a satisfying experience is a state of consciousness known as "flow". Flow is a state of complete absorption and focus in an activity, characterized by feelings of effortless control, alertness, and a sense of transcendence. Time and emotional problems seem to disappear in this state.
