Podcast Episode 103: Engagement and Getting into a State of "Flow"
"Flow requires us to use our strengths. Sadly many of us don't really know what those are. One of the first things that you must do is to identify these strengths. What are those things that your brain is wired to do, those things that you love doing?"
This is the 3rd episode of our new weekly podcast series "How To Thrive", a collaboration with positive psychology coach Marie McLeod. This series is all about exploring how to thrive and practicing the BEACON model; a model that Marie has developed to guide us through the simple steps to thriving and flourishing in life.
Today, we recap what we learned about Belonging and talk about how we did on our weekly quest. We then explore the second "beam" of the BEACON model: Engagement.
- Deep focus or "flow" and how it improves our quality of life, satisfaction and happiness
- Does personality affect how easy it is to get into a state of flow
- How can we craft our lives in order to get into a "flow" more often
- Understanding your profile of individual strengths and how to use that to increase engagement
Your quest for this week: Go with the way you're wired and spend more time doing the things you're good at. What activities get you into a state of flow and how do they make you feel? Share your experience with us. We'd love to hear from you. If you need a little help finding your strengths, take the VIA strengths survey.
