Flow state - how do you achieve yours?

It has a few names. Flow, Flow state, Hyperfocus or being 'in the zone'. It's that mental state where you feel fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement and hopefully, enjoyment in the process of an activity.

I'm curious about if, and how, other developers enter and maintain their Flow state.

So. How do you enter and maintain your Flow state?

For me, I find that music plays a large part in helping me enter my 'Flow state'. It helps me zone in. Noise cancelling headphones and some chilled beats, alongside feeling well rested, happy and I expect well hydrated, all help me to drill down and focus on the job at hand.
