Cyber-psychologist Berni Goode talking about Flow on Charlie Brooker’s How Videogames Changed the World.
Flow is extremely important. So, so important.
It’s what keeps some people sane. It’s what drives the world’s most skilled and accomplished athletes, the most intense gamers, the hardcore hobbyists, even many of the most talented artists, musicians and actors - flow is what you get when unstoppable drive meets an unflinching will and unlimited dedication.
Flow is being utterly, truly “in the zone”. And it’s one of the most amazing feelings there is.
This is why finding a sport, or a hobby, or a martial art, or a handicraft, or a new video game, or any skill-based activity that uses focus and requires practice and repetition is so beneficial for things like depression and anxiety and overall mental/physical well-being.
mhm! It’s true! When I feel stressed out or want to be at peace, I take out my yarn and knitting needles/crochet hook and won’t stop until I’m done.
if i was an anime one of my personal development episodes would consist of scenes where my ability 2 apply eyeliner improves and becomes godly
i was thinking about what kind of phones these kids would have
how can you not see them as the best of gay friends

More Haikyuu Pallette thingies!! Oikawa and Noya(aaaaaaas).
Sorry if this is getting boring but they’re so fun to do ;w; and I want to get to everyone’s requests..
Please let yourself be proud of small things. Please do that. Please allow yourself to get really excited about playing a video game well or sending an ask you were nervous about or letting a bug outside or peeling the whole orange in one try. Please get so excited about that. Please. That’s so cool I’m so glad you did it.
Sometimes body modification is just a way of telling yourself “this is still my house, I paint the walls and and I hang the art because I’m the one who owns it”
