Action, a definition

An action could create a desired mental state immediately or stack with other actions to create the desired mental state over time.

If one’s lifestyle is goal-oriented, the process stops after the action has produced the mental state. However, if one’s lifestyle is practice-oriented, one’s goal should be to continuously generate the mental state by continuously performing the action.
