Vigil



Vigil, a fictional mini-journal, is a self-initiated project born out of my curiosity in the Flow theory by psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.  


The connection of this theory to my experiences led me to research deeper on how it relates to concepts like happiness, creativity, and the role of money in one's journey.

The mini-journal features three research essays on each connection.






In positive psychology, Flow is the optimum mental state one can reach. It is described as a natural euphoric feeling.

According to Csikszentmihalyi, Flow occurs when one loses their sense of time and self-consciousness during an activity that they are intensely immersed in so they give their full focus to its process and zero to its result.
