It’s time to ELEVATE!

Here we are once again, halfway through another year. It’s usually at this point we stop and wonder, “How did we get here so quickly yet again?”

So why does time seem to pass faster as we get older? This phenomenon has been contemplated quite a bit. The general consensus within the field of psychology is that it’s due to the repetitive routines we settle into. If you do the same things repeatedly day after day, the brain doesn’t make detailed, lasting memories of this, so one day blends into another. The good news is that the solution is relatively easy: take advantage of new and unique experiences. Attempting new activities will imprint deeper on the brain, and when we look back on memories, this extra detail will seem like a longer period of time.
