We all have the same hours and minutes in a day, but weeks and months seem to be passing faster than ever. If you want to know why it’s time to put on your lab coat.
Einstein’s theory of relativity states the rate at which time passes depends entirely on your speed and acceleration at any given moment. But we’re not talking about physics. We’re talking about technology and perception.
New evidence suggests that constant use of technology is making your brains more efficient at processing information. It is also tricking you into thinking time is passing faster.
Time isn’t speeding up. Your brain is speeding up.
If you want to perceive life as short – stay busy and spend your time on your computer.
If you want to perceive life as long – drop the keyboard, telephone, and binging on Netflix. When you slow down, life slows down.
