The’ Flow’ is created by an balance between concentration, effort, movement and interaction. One is fully absorbed in the activity. The sense of time fades, one forgets oneself and pain can disappear.
However, the activity is very challenging, but not too difficult to successfully carry out. The feeling of personal control over the situation makes it very nice to do. During the’ Flow’ situation, more substances are produced in the brain than usual, including endorphins and dopamine (both neurotransmitters), which have a positive influence on cognitive performance. Dopamine ensures that the nerves can communicate adequately with each other. Endorphin is in the first instance a natural painkiller and co-responsible for the development of the feeling of happiness.
A lot of research is done into the effects of the ‘Flow States’. One of the researchers in this field is psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and author Steven KotlerDirector of ‘Research for the Flow Genome Project’.
