Diary #138 Flow State

I used to associate the term Flow State with fun activities like surfing.

But seeing it described as ‘fully immersed, paying no attention to distractions and time seems to pass without any notice’, I recognise that I often experience it whilst structuring cashflow models in Excel, a large part of my work.


Flow contributes to ‘increased happiness, higher intrinsic motivation, greater creativity, and better emotional regulation’.  It is weird and nice to acknowledge that I get this from work.


If you experience flow with any activity, be it work, sport, cooking, art, music, please recognise its benefits and invest time in doing it. And if you want to know more here is great source: https://www.flowresearchcollective.com
