Daily Prompt Tell us about your favorite way to get lost in a simple activity — running, chopping vegetables, folding laundry, whatever. What’s it like when you’re in “the zone”?

Running and chopping vegetables would be least likely to produce any kind of Zone state for me. Running would probably kill me and chopping vegetables is right up there with running.
Folding laundry though, I get into that. When fully focused on sorting and matching in the most efficient manner, I’m whisked away from any troubling thoughts, into a Zone-like state.

I’ve mastered the Martha Stewart fold for t-shirts. I stack paired up socks, heels all facing the same way, but alternate washcloths and boxer shorts so they stack more evenly.
I pride myself on my ability to distribute a full load of folded, stacked laundry to it’s various closets in one trip, no basket, without spillage. When the laundry sits neatly on the shelf and the closet door closes, it’s then that I wake up from my trance and realize, I’ve just been in The Laundry Zone
