Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on Flow and what makes life worth living

As part of the TED series, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on the flow state that is so essential not only for successful freediving, but any form of training and goal setting.

Clinton Laurence applied Csikszentmihalyi's work in his presentation on Mindfulness in Freediving that finalised his Instructor Course with us and Csikszentmihalyi deserves another slot in our resources for the insights he can give us on how we can set productive goals in our freediving training that allow us to proceed with a positive attitude and make our training not only safe, but also successful.

This understanding of flow, challenges and happiness is a vital part of our advanced and master level courses, as well as of course our Freediving Instructor Development

So much of what we learn in freediving is applicable in rest-of-life and here is one of those moments where we can apply life lessons from other fields to our sport, our learning and our profession.
