This article from the L.A. Times was shared with me today.
It’s amazing how our mind’s perception of time can vary so drastically by what we are doing. Even more interesting is that time seems to go by more quickly without memorable interactions.
Not mentioned in the article and just a guess on my part is that time flies by more quickly due to the fact there are no buffer times between activities. The commute home for activity is non-existent. Which gives us more time in theory but without the break between activities time ends up moving more quickly.
