Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi once made the claim that "the increase in material resources does not increase happiness" after the individual has the basic necessities to live comfortably. Past this point, happiness is contributed to by the ability of the individual to enter a state of fluid creativity, a zone of focus, something Csikszentmihalyi called "flow." People who experience flow more frequently are happier, more productive, and more satisfied with their lives. TEDxNCSSM 2015 explores this current hotspot in positive psychology through the stories of four speakers who each found their own ways to experience flow.

TED Talks Shown at this event:
Janet Echelman - "Taking imagination seriously"
