Finding Flow – Guest Blogging

Finding flow - guest blogging - Zest e-BizMy first guest blog ever is being published TODAY at the Älska Publishing blog

I wrote an article called Finding Flow, Finding Peace, which is about a journey I’m taking to identify activities in my life that lead to a feeling of happiness and contentment.

What is Flow?

According to Csikszentmihalyi, Flow is defined as

“The state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter; the experience itself is so enjoyable that people will do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it”

What I’ve Found So Far

Having just had one week back in New Zealand at home visiting friends and family, I noticed a number of unusual “Flow” experiences. Contrary to my original belief that these types of experiences mainly occur when you are challenged intellectually, I noticed that I was experiencing flow in everyday activities. Just catching up with friends, indulging in family banter, and brainstorming ideas for my sister’s wedding next year all resulted in “Flow”.

Perhaps this was because the intrinsic motivation and my perceived security in these situations were higher than in situations at work, or with friends and interactions in the community where I currently live?

Benefits of Guest Blogging

As I mentioned this will be my first guest blog. Guest blogging can be a powerful way to increase awareness about the work you do based on the size of the database and readership of the website you are blogging for.

As always you need to ensure your websites are aligned. I’m very grateful that Sarah Prout & Sean Patrick Simpson have chosen to post my blog post, as is a result of the Adventures in Manifesting eCourse.

Have you ever guest blogged? I’d love to hear from anyone who has had their blogs published as guest blogs and what they gained from the experience.
