Flow rediscover your self and find happiness by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

flowFlow is a book which help you rediscover your self and makes you think about yourself and how you want your life to be happy. It made me think a lot, especially on what it means to be happy and satisfied. Part science and part philosophy, it essentially defines happiness itself, then proceeds to explain in detail how we can attain it every waking moment of our lives. It’s a not a light read as you will need to digest the content and it will always make you think. If you are unhappy, anxious, or generally dissatisfied with the direction of your life, read this book it will surely help.

In book author defines 8 elements of enjoyment:
1. Confront challenging but completable tasks (if the activity is too easy, we’re bored; if it’s too difficult, we’re anxious)
2. Concentration
3. Clear goals
4. Immediate feedback
5. Deep, effortless involvement (lack of awareness of worries and frustrations)
6. Sense of control over actions
7. Concern for self disappears (paradoxically awareness of self is heightened immediately after flow)
8. Sense of duration of time is altered (either “hours feel like minutes” or vice versa)

It’s a must read. It will take roughly 20 to 30 days to complete this book. You can get this book by clicking here. Also check out the author at Ted by click here.
