What is “Flow State”?
Creativity. Productivity. Immersion. Happiness. “Flow State” is the name that positive psychologists give to the state of mind when one is “in the zone” – you are so fully immersed, lost in your thoughts or conversation, that you are unaware of time passing or the world around you. You are suspended in your point of focus. Being in the flow state can bring satisfaction, clarity, imagination, artistry, and ease of creation. In this state, you are best able to use your skills to meet challenges. Flow state is the antidote to boredom.

Psychologist Dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi coined the term and has conducted extensive research on the subject. If you really want to know, read the book. If you want the idea in a nutshell, watch the TED talk given by Dr. Csikszentmihalyi himself.
