Want to slow time?

Time flies for you? Do days, weeks, months and years pass without you feeling them?
You have only one life and that is a short one. You should aim to feel your life, to experience it to the fullest.

There are many techniques you can use to slow down time so you can feel the day.
For me the best technique has been to change my routine. Routine tasks are the main reason your days go by quickly without you feeling them. Change your routine. Be mindful about what you do on daily basis and change them as much as you can.

One of the best ways to change you routine and to slow down time is moving to a small town. Moving changes your routine. You will feel the hours and days of your life when you move.
Additional benefit is the decrease in travelling time. For example when I lived in Richmond Hill (Ontario, Canada) a while back, it would take me about 3 hours to go to work and come back. To go to the nearest supermarket would take me 30 minutes both ways. And so on. A lot of time I spent in the car travelling from one location to another. Living in a small town decreases your travel time greatly.

As I said in my previous post living in a small town closer to nature allows you to live longer, to become happier and calmer. Small town living is less stressful.

So if you wish to feel your life, to slow down time, move to a smaller town and that forces you to change your routine.

  1. I have certainly found this to be true! I had a conversation with a colleague some time ago related to this topic. We spoke about the importance of performing unique tasks and pushing the boundaries of our normal. This is really the only way to slow down time. The reason time goes so slow when we are children is because EVERYTHING is new and as we get older almost everything has become mundane and "too easy." Meditation and active creation of our individual experience will help. Great Post Dr. Pourgol! Keep up the good work!
