    Abstract

    The paper examines research into wellbeing and flow, considered as enjoyable challenging experiences. A questionnaire study is reported of the association between wellbeing in both work and leisure and flow in a sample of male and female office workers. Based on previous research it is hypothesized that flow is associated with wellbeing; flow is experienced more in work than in leisure; gender differences occur in the activities which give rise to flow. The results support all three hypotheses. The importance of flow for wellbeing is discussed, and a critique of the concept flow is presented. While the complex nature of the concept of quality of life is recognized, it is concluded that research into flow and wellbeing is important.
