Happiness fact 45: teens 'flow' 44% of the time when involved in sports, games

"Flow" is a state of intense concentration and productivity when time flies. Also known as "the zone" or "the groove", flow is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity.

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.
