Shayne’s Unquestionable Theory on How Time Works

Pass your time well! Enjoy and relish (mmmm…relish) Shayne’s post: Time Flies So Fast! How We Can Slow it Down.

1. Time Perception is a Percentage of Life

“The apparent length of an interval at a given epoch of a man’s life is proportional to the total length of the life itself. A child of 10 feels a year as 1/10 of his whole life – a man of 50 as 1/50, the whole life meanwhile apparently preserving a constant length.”

William James

2. Time Seems to Speed Up As the Brain Slows Down

Yes, it’s relative!

3. Repetition Seems to Make Time Pass Faster

“ Routine makes time go faster, unique and memorable events slow down time. Although there is comfort in routine, it does make time fly.”

Ronald E. Riggio, Ph.D.

Maybe it’s time to take a vacation!
