Mindfulness And The Speed Of Time

The practice of mindfulness and savouring every moment will help us counter the speed of life.

  • New studies show that the increased speed of time as we grow older might now be only related to ageing or having fewer new experiences, but due to the way we experience an event.
  • If we focus on the present moment, like when we are chewing food, or watching a sunset, we can experience it more vividly and literary slow down time. More attention also means better memory, as it encodes more data in an improved manner inside our brain.

Our Perception Of Time

Our Perception Of Time

  • Our sense of how time passes speeds up as we reach middle age. Years rush by faster and we all wonder where did the summer go?
  • Our perception of time starts accelerating and the reason may be our decreased mindfulness about our surroundings.
  • As we grow older, we categorize each day or activity as a generic type of experience, like ‘workday’, or ‘beach walk, or ‘Sunday Golf’.
  • Time flies when we are having fun or are in a highly aroused state, something which Einstein noted when he studied the relativity of time, and how emotions change our time perception.
