Flow is addictive
Flow is an addictive state. Say you are feeling good, then get into flow (doing some project or whatever) … and at the end, there is a ‘come down’ (not unlike a drug!) … by then the original state of feeling good is lost, and finally you find yourself craving to resurrect flow again.
So an answer to “Why appreciate?” in the enjoy-and-appreciate ofis that - appreciating feeling good (for example) reinforces the sensibility of feeling good (for example) explicitly in memory, such that it becomes less likely to be overriden (forgotten) by a future-state of good feeling overriding that sensibility.
Open question: how does this realization actualize in future flow moments?
