Yeah, makes sense that "enlightenment" would be a physiological state, not a mental state. Probably many other states are like that too. I've noticed that when I want to make my mind behave a certain way (e.g. focused, sociable, or creative), a quick physical warm-up (like a few push-ups or squat jumps) works much better than trying to change tracks purely mentally.
