    Flow which is defiened by Csikszentmihalyi is when you are totally involved in a activity, lose a sense of time, and can cause reward that carries over into life. For me it is art, I often get so wrapped up in my artwork that I often kill a whole afternoon drawing. After words I often feel as all my burdens are lifted from me.

    He said all a person needs in life is flow to be happy.

    What activities do you get involved in that make you feel this way, and does this cause reward in your life. Do you feel this is strongly correlated with happiness?

    I expect to get brain dead answers as well as those of you that can think. either way be stupid if you want , its your life.

    masturbation. seriously, time flies when you're doing that.

    other than that? sports, man. time flies like hell when you're playing ball, and you feel great after, especially if you win. watching sports, too, 'cuz if your team wins, it's a great night full of celebration.

    hell yeah, a good game of b-ball with my friends gets me hyped. nothing like playing basketball at three in the morning in a lighted court.


    Doing a fat production with mates.....Shit time flew the last time I did one. Drinking beer mainly because all your senses are nummed and time can`t be recollected. Just chillin and smoking a joint with friends time flies. Basketball definatly. Drawing in my sketch book, I once filled 40 pages full of graff related drawings in one go. Watching a good movie

    yea, that and painting.

    ive noticed that if im stoned and painting, i dont realize how much time ive been out for.

    id say sex, but i have a pretty good grasp on how long 15 seconds is.

    just kidding.
