Happiness fact 32: what is Flow? And why does it matter?

Flow is a state of intense concentration and productivity when time flies. U.S. teenagers experience flow about 13 percent of the time that they spend watching television, 34 percent of the time they do hobbies, and 44 percent of the time they are involved in sports and games Source: Mihaly Csíkszentmihályi (1990).
