According to Psychology Today, routines make our brains click to autopilot. And that makes the days seem to pass more quickly.
Dinah Avni-Babad is a psychologist at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She did a study and found out that we rarely remember routine actions it's the new experiences that become embedded in our memories and make the days seem to last longer.
Avni-Babad says routine is like a straight line in our memory. New experiences cause the line to grow more jagged and packed with new perceptions. This accounts for the old adage that time passes more quickly as we age. It may be that we simply encounter fewer new experiences the older we get. But the days feel much longer when you're a child.
So - want time to pass more slowly? Avni-Babad suggests you shake up your life. But it doesn't have to be sky diving - any new experience will do. So what are you waiting for?
