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.
If you shift your focus on the present moment (working, driving, cleaning, whatever it is), you will start to feel time as more abundant.
Mindfulness is a great tool to deepen and balance your days. But you don't necessarily need it. Just make sure to invest more attention in present-moment experience.
