Perception of Time


Do you ever experience days that seem to drag on endlessly, while others pass in the blink of an eye? This phenomenon, commonly known as the 'holiday paradox', is rooted in our emotions and memories. When we're on vacation, time seems to fly by, but when we look back on those same moments later, they feel much longer.

Our perception of time is deeply influenced by our emotions and mood. When we're having fun, time seems to pass quickly. Conversely, when we're sad or bored, time can feel like it's standing still. This complex relationship between time and emotion is shaped by our age, context, and individual experiences.

As we grow older, we become more aware of how precious time truly is. To live a fulfilling life, it's important to be present and appreciate the world around us. However, we must also recognise that time is a finite resource, and it's up to us to decide how we want to spend it. By investing our time wisely in the things and people that matter most, we can create a life filled with purpose and meaning.
