Time flies as you get older

As you age, life seems to go by faster and faster. Science spoke up and they said they know why!

Science says our perception of time is seriously influenced by our perspective. For example, to an 8 year old, a week is a big portion of their time on earth. But to an 80 year old? It’s almost an insignificantly small portion of theirs.

Think about this: To an 80 year old, life when they were 75 isn’t that much different, but to an 8 year old… life when they were 5 was monumentally different!

A good lesson we can learn is you can’t control how much time you have or how long it will seem to last, but you can control what you do with your time.
