Why Time Flies Too Fast?

How We Can Stop The Time – Time Flies

This is one of the most frequently asked questions by most of us, both to ourselves and to those around us.

In this article, I will both ask myself why time passes so quickly and try to give myself answers.

Let me first start by giving some information: a day is 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, or 86,400 seconds long.

This number will always remain the same unless someone says let’s make a day 25 hours.

In other words, time has a certain flow, it does not have the luxury of slowing down or speeding up.

But why do we have such a thought?

Why does time pass so quickly…

In fact, you are both right and wrong, time passes both slowly and quickly.

The flow of time can seem fast or slow, depending on what you’re doing and how you’re feeling.

If you got up late today and you have less than an hour left, the time you have left will pass much faster than yesterday.

You will realize that even your routine tasks such as waking up, waking up, having breakfast, cleaning the house take a lot of time.

When you finish all your work and look at the clock, you will realize that you have little time to go out and walk around or do some shopping.

That’s why you should get up as early as possible to use more time than a 24-hour day.

If you are alone anywhere, time will pass slowly. If you are waiting for something or working on something, time will pass slowly.

There was even a song from previous years, I remember. “The clock is always slow at work,” was singed.

Time will pass quickly if you have a lot of work to do and need to grow something.

If you are in a place you love, with the people you love, time will pass quickly.

As you can see, the rate of flow of time depends on many variables.

Speaking of variables, let me try to answer the frequently spoken issues about time:

People say that after a certain age, time passes very quickly, even that they cannot keep up with the speed of time.

One of the biggest reasons for this is; It is the transition to a fixed order and continuing our lives within the framework of this routine.

When you do the same or similar things every day, even if we think that time passes slowly during what we do; When we look back, we realize that the days, weeks, months and even years pass quickly.

Even though we think that time passes quickly when we add a little color to our lives and do different things; When we look back, we think that we had a full and enjoyable time.

Non-routine activities such as trying new things, getting to know new people and spending time with them, seeing new places will help you to intervene and take control of the fast flow of time for you.

This is one of the most important reasons why time passes slowly for children.

Many things they encounter in their daily lives mean new experiences and things that require them to learn and improve themselves.

A person learns and should learn new things every moment throughout his life. However, after a while, the pace of learning slows down, and from that day on, time begins to pass quickly for that person.

Let me give a little example from myself. As of now, I am 41 years old and started working full time at the age of 25.

While I remember a lot from my college years, very little remains in my memory from other 16 years.

Working life inevitably traps people in a boring and suffocating routine.

You don’t have many options to do something new and to find solutions against time.

That’s why most of people still have a lot of dreams that they haven’t been able to fulfill.

Our biggest excuse for these is that I have little time.

I think the speed of time also depends on what we experience.

While I am working or lying in bed with the flu, time will never pass for me.


If you are aware, what you read did nothing but confuse your mind. So Let me at least make the finale good.

Time will pass quickly for some, quick for others, one way or another.

But it’s up to you to have a good time and make use of the time given to you.
