Flow state is a very powerful state of mind where you are extremely productive and also feel great.

You don’t have to force yourself to work hard. Rather, it seems to go automatically. It seems as if you are ‘flowing’ through your work.

An example is a gamer spending hours behind the computer without feeling bored, fatigued, or hungry.
