There is a good book on this topic titled "Flow" by Mihaly
Csikszentmihalyi. From the back cover:

". . . what makes experience genuinely satisfying is a state of
consciousness called flow - a state of concentration so focused that it
amounts to absolute absorption in an activity. People typically feel
strong, alert, in effortless control, unselfconscious, and at the peak of
their abilities."

The book discusses "how this pleasurable state can be controlled and not
just left to chance."

Think it time for me to reread it.
