Mind, Body, & Spirit: Looking at Flow in Sport as a Means of Self-Discovery and Holistic Awareness.

The various health and psychological benefits of sport participation are common knowledge to a majority of people. However, many do not realize that athletics also allow an individual to access and unlock powers and potentials inherent to the human spirit, which may not be afforded to them through non-physical activities. In this piece, sport will be unveiled as a means of self-discovery, as well as a way for people to recover various aspects of their humanity, and invoke in them, a reconciliation of the mind, body and spirit. In exploring the power of sport as an invigorating agent, new thought will be given, as to how people can use physical activity, as a means of attaining a better sense of overall, functional awareness. In particular, elements of eastern philosophy, as well as the “Flow” paradigm, will be incorporated and discussed, in attempting to uncover the powers inherent to sport and human being in general.
