Happiness fact 14: 20% of us experience flow multiple times a day

Csikszentmihalyi determined that universally about 20 percent of us experience flow multiple times a day while 15 percent claim they never have this kind of experience.
One of his specific studies surveyed 6,469 people in Germany and concluded that 23 percent of people experience flow often, 40 percent experience it sometimes, 25 percent rarely experience flow moments, and 12 percent never do or do not know.
Another interesting research finding is that people who read books on a regular basis achieve flow twice as much as people that read occasionally or not at all.
