Making Time "Slow Down"

Making Time "Slow Down"

  1. Switch up your daily routine! Any small changes can make time "feel" longer. It doesn't have to be expensive or time intensive.
  2. Go out and do something safely. Maybe visit your friends, talk to your neighbor, or even travel.
  3. If you have goals, make small steps to achieve them. Break them down into actionable pieces.
  4. Actively notice new things.
  5. Being present makes time feel slower, so try meditating!
  6. Keep track of the passing days with a diary or a journal, you can even take photos and stick them in there.
  7. Cut yourself some slack and be kind to yourself.

MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

Having routinary days for months on end will eventually make time feel like it's slipping through our fingers.

As Marc Wittman, psychologist and time researcher said, "routine kills our memory for respective intervals". New experiences make indents in our memories thus giving us the perception of lengthened time.

When nothing meaningful happens to us our brains don't have anything for it to record.

How long an hour, a week, or a year feels is something that changes all the time.

For example, an hour spent coping with tragic news can be perceived as very slow, while an hour of frantic cleaning before guests arrive seems to pass very quickly.

First Impressions

Usually, when we meet or see a person, we create a first impression in our minds, almost unconsciously.

But the snap judgements, or quick conclusions our mind starts to entertain in the first instance, can be drastically wrong.

A lot of people are experiencing unnecessary guilt right now, so you’re not alone if you can relate. Talking to friends and family members who understand can help.

If, despite your efforts, you’re still experiencing a lot of guilt or it’s interfering with your ability to function, consider seeking professional help. Guilt can be a symptom of depression, PTSD, or other mental health issues.
