5 Ways You Can Slow Down Time

5 Ways You Can Slow Down Time

It’s always the case – you have lots of things you need to get done, but so little time to get them done.

Many of us wish that we could have the power to slow down time every now and then, but this seems like something only made possible in a superhero or sci-fi movie…right? The concept of being able to slow down our day is actually quite possible and it all comes in the form of how we perceive time.

There’s a simple explanation for how time seems to speed up as you get older. For a one year old, one year would represent 100% of their life. As that baby got older, the percentage would get lower and lower each consecutive year. At 18 years old, one year would represent 5.56% of their life. As we live through more years, our brain perceives that each further year happens much quicker purely because it represents a smaller portion of our lifetime.

With this in mind, what are some of the best ways to slow down time? Take a look at the super-handy info graphic from Key Retirement below which takes a look at 5 of the most useful ways in which we can all slow down our perception of time – including the likes of mindfulness and staying intellectually curious.
