There’s a psychologist named Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi who has developed a theory during his 30 years of research into the nature of success and happiness.  He published his findings in the “Psychology of Optimal Experience”.

He doesn’t think rest and eliminating stress are the keys to happiness.  His research has shown passive leisure doesn’t create contentment nor does it build positive energy.  What he discovered is people who have a clear goal which gives an immediate feedback telling them what they are doing is positive and making a difference are among the most successful and confident.

He also notes that people who love what they’re doing tend to lose themselves in the activity and become empowered in the joy of the task itself.  Being in the “FLOW”.  Athletes call it being in the “Zone”.

I call it getting to “Higher Levels of Health”.-Kevin G. Parker, D.C.
