We all wish that we had more time, not only on a daily basis, but in life in general. We all find ourselves asking “where did the time go?”, or saying “time flies”. Last week, my younger son turned one – and I had those thoughts. But when I hear older people talk about their kids, who are in high school or grown up, and how time flies, it is a strange feeling. Sure, I look forward to spending some alone time with my wife, but am not trying to wish my life away.
As Gretchen Rubin noted, “The Days are Long, the Years are Short“. That is so true. Due to the theory of time perception, as we age, time seems to go faster. We don’t need studies to tell us that – at least I don’t. But, the question remains:
Can we slow down this perception?
I don’t know the answer to this question. Do you? What works for you, if anything? What would you like to try? Tell me about resources you have found helpful. the comments are open.
