A book that I have read in English and will read again in Lithuanian. And please don't ask to pronounce the last name of this wonderful Hungarian researcher and author. The book wonderfully describes a phenomenon that we call "letting go", "diving right in" or "in the zone". We call it many things, perhaps many things it also is. The Flow is "optimal experience" - a state of consciousness, an experience that is genuinely satisfying. During flow, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life. The Flow is the mental state in which a person performing some activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by the complete absorption in what one does, and a resulting transformation in one's sense of time. Highly recommended.

Thanks Monika for Sharing, I have already heard about this book. Does the author explain how to get to that mental state of “Flow” ?

Research. Aerobic exercise (when you breathe faster and get warm, but still can carry on conversation) may significantly decrease symptoms of depression in young adults, more than mild stretching exercises. Research focused on cognitive control and reward mechanisms in the brain - which is assumed are impaired in major depression. Cognitive control mechanism is responsible for behavior modification while reaching for the goal and resistance to distractions. Reward mechanisms regulate positive emotions as response to the achieved goal and processing of information and emotions in case of loss.

A book that I would like to recommend. Mostly to help distinguish pseudoscientific inspirational books from the shelves labeled as psychology from the real scientific books. It is important to understand that single keyword does not define the value of the knowledge. From where I look, buddhism has succeeded better (and much earlier) to summarise all spiritual practices into the single and fluent totality. They knew long ago that mindful attention, focus on here and now, meditation as form of active rest are important to the proper balance of the body. We are discovering the same only during last decades. Sincerely, all of it is being confirmed as efficient methods. Perhaps, there is no need to reinvent the bicycle, especially if it has been working and improved for hundreds of years?

I talked to Vitoldas Masalskis about coaching psychology, research, mental healthcare, and a little bit about one's life and worldview. It was a deep and meaningful conversation. 💛 Some of the topics include: ➡️ Do you need counseling, therapy, or coaching? ➡️ Why psychological knowledge is important? ➡️ When should a coach refer one's clients? ➡️ Why is coaching psychology on the rise? ➡️ How to learn more about coaching? We both agreed to meet for the second round in the future. 👌 P. S. The video is in Lithuanian. 🇱🇹 https://youtu.be/CZw7s_I9EOk
