Flow

In positive psychology, a flow state, also known colloquially as being in the zone, is the mental state in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by the complete absorption in what one does, and a resulting transformation in one’s sense of time.

I’ve always been skeptical about the concept of flow. I never experienced something that immersive, until yesterday.

I felt satisfied and happy when I was writing yesterday‚ due to a flow state.

Forcing myself to write everyday for the past 11 days was tough at the beginning. However, I’m starting to reap the benefits and enjoy the process now.
