Flow: The Secret to Happiness?

Former president of the American Psychological Association, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is best known for his work examining happiness and creativity, fitting in nicely with the recent popularity of positive psychology.

Considered by some as his pioneering work into happiness Csikszentmihalyi is the architect of the notion of ‘Flow’ The Psychology of Optimal Experience.

Czikszentmihalyi asks, “What makes a life worth living?” Noting that money cannot make us happy, he looks to those who find pleasure and lasting satisfaction in activities that bring about a state of “flow.”
