“Happiness is a condition that must be prepared for, cultivated and defended privately by each person.”
– Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Creativity is known to be a central source of meaning in our lives. As a leading researcher in positive psychology, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi has devoted his life to studying what makes people truly happy: “When we are involved in [creativity], we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.”
He is the architect of the notion of “flow” – the creative moment when a person is completely involved in an activity for its own sake. We get happiness when we are immersed in tasks that we find engaging and challenging.
Thus, creative action can function as a natural ‘antidepressant’ and make us more attractive to others.
