How to use "Immersion" in context?

When we think of immersion, what often comes to mind is being fully submerged in water, or physically occupying a place to the exclusion of all else. In some cases, that full immersion can be literal-for example, when someone is swimming laps. But immersion can also be figurative-as when we're completely focused on a task or when we're so focused on what we're doing that we're not paying attention to anything else. In short, immersion can refer to a state of being or an activity in which we're totally involved. And that involvement can be positive or negative.
