Living in the moment: a difficult ideal to achieve, and often elusive. Activities like these are the most reliable way for myself to not be burdened with past and future. Pure focus on action and reaction. Challenging self.
Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi coined this state as flow. He asks, “What makes a life worth living?” Noting that money cannot make us happy, he looks to those who find pleasure and lasting satisfaction in activities that bring about a state of “flow.” He defines flow as ‘the state in which people are so involved in an activity that nothing else seems to matter; the experience itself is so enjoyable that people will do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it.’
