What Happens When We Enjoy Something?

What Happens When We Enjoy Something?

Enjoyment doesn’t just happen by itself. One always enjoys something. It can be something inside us – a pleasant thought perhaps, or something we did, saw, read, heard, touched, smelled, inhaled, tasted, ate or drank.

Enjoying something usually involves several senses at once. This is true of tea: Not only do we smell and taste the tea, but we are also aware of its warmth or coolness, its liquid consistency, the sensation of the cup as we pick it up in our hands. As we place it to our lips, we hear the cracking noise of rock candy as it drops into a cup of hot tea. Tea gives us an intense feeling of pleasure and relaxation. Pleasure is the synthesis of perception and emotion.
