    I think that is just the natural way to feel when your "in tray" is clear.

    ie you have no physical pain (that you cannot easily surmount) , no nagging psychological needs and you have a forward vista that does not seem too far ahead.

    It feels good and you have to enjoy it while it lasts.

    Are you a materialist or a spiritual person ?

    There are many factors but the main 1, by far, is natural chemicals or hormones in the body, mainly in the brain.

    I wonder whether it is important (or possible) to see oneself as others see one.

    I know I was once taken aback when someone once said to me (cuttingly) "Do you know what you look like?" but have never quite digested that interaction.
