“Flow is the mental state of operation in which the person is fully immersed in what he or she is doing by a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and success in the process of the activity.” (Wikipedia)
Flow is related to mental and physical wellbeing and often a byproduct of creative activities
Have you had this experience? What activities or experiences have resulted in a state of flow for you (special interests, creative pursuits, meditation or other)?

F60 When involved with something that truly interests me such as music, and art, reading a good book, even E-mail. I can switch this on quite easily. I learned to meditate years ago and I think that facilitated the ability to be in the ‘flow’ of things. Now it is just there if I need it.

Do you have special interests or a passion for anything in particular? Have you in the past? Perhaps a series of interests over time? If you have had a series of interests, do they have a common thread?
Have you done anything creative/innovative/unique with your interests or passions – “grown” them?

F60: Music, art, psychology, history, gardening. I have had many over the years but these are the threads throughout life.
