If you’re looking for a book that will teach you about the psychology of happiness, then Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience is a must-read.

In order to achieve this state, there are several things we need: clear goals; feedback on how well we’re doing; immediate challenges which require skill but aren’t too difficult for us; skills that match up with our abilities (not too easy or too hard); complete concentration without being distracted by either internal thoughts or external factors like noise from other people around us.
