Happy hours are not watching

You met an old friend in a cafe and did not have time to discuss half of what I wanted, as it was already getting late in the evening and it's time to go home. The long-awaited concert, it would seem, played a couple of songs, and already beginning to collect tools. You invite loved ones on your birthday. Sounded only a few toasts, and people get up from the table. Good mood speeds up the time. Reliving the joyful moments, people are so passionate about what is happening, do not look at the clock, do not feel boredom, and enjoying it. Time just passes quietly, as you was not to spy on him.

Malicious routine

The experts noticed an interesting effect: for a man whose days are deprived of bright colors and filled with routine, time passes quite slowly. These people sitting in the workplace, can yawn, regularly looking at his watch and impatiently wait for the arrows will show six, and you can go home. They home, doing cleaning or cooking, dream about how to finish everything quickly and go to bed. It seems that their days are stretched, but later, when they remember the past year, it would seem that he flew in an instant. The reason is in the monotony of life and absence of important events and strong emotions: memories are not something to hold on to, and all the days merge into the General gray mass.

Time, forward!

Many people noticed that the speed of time changes depending on their age. In childhood the months dragged on turtle-slow. It seemed that a quarter will never end, and three months of summer vacation was a whole life that you can manage to do so many interesting things. With age, the time went faster: no time to begin December, come the New Year, the holidays flew by in one breath, the children grew up quickly. Scientists believe that such changes in the speed of flow of time can be two reasons. There is a theory that it affects the so-called effect of proportionality, because for preteen one year is 10% of his life, but for fifty people – only 2%.

The second reason lies in the fact that for a child every day eventful. He learns, much is new to him, the events often evoke strong emotions, whereas the experience makes the experience less intense. Because of this difference in the perception of the impression that the time for children and adults is flowing at different speeds.
