Getting into "the Flow" – Yarigai – Ikigai – Lebensfreude

I was still digesting Yuval Harari’s book “Homo Deus” when I started to read Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s book “Flow - Psychology of happiness”. Yuval illustrates the enormous progress we humans have made in all areas; technical, medical, social and economic, yet he notes that we have barely progressed on the human happiness scale.

Mihaly’s research shows what it takes to make us humans happy. He uses the term “flow” to describe how people feel when they are fully engaged in or in “the zone” with what they are doing. People are so absorbed that time seems to no longer exist, they forget to eat, drink, and even sleep. Mihaly describes the required conditions for people to get into flow and hence happiness. He also demonstrates that happiness can be achieved through flow independent of one’s external circumstances.
