Shifting time: Pandemic impacts our perception
A recent study finds a majority of people feel their perception of time has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
recently published British study asked over 600 people a simple question thinking about today or this week, how quickly has time felt like it was passing in comparison to normal? My perception of time has changed, the researchers found. Roughly 40% of people thought it was going faster, and on the opposite side, 40% felt time slow down on Lee. 19% of people felt time passed at a normal rate, the study found. There were four main factors associated with a distorted perception of time. First was age. Everything just slow down. Increasing age was associated with an increasingly slower passage of time. This was especially true for people over 60. Kind of stood still. It was like you didn't know what day it was, what time it waas. The next element was house satisfied or happy. Someone was in their social interactions. Now that it's summer time or out, side TEM is passing fast. Time passed more quickly with increased satisfaction in social interactions. The amount of stress a person was under also impacted the perception of time. More stress was associated with a slowing of time. Finally, how busy you felt was important amateur. So time has passed very fast. For me, the busier a person was the faster time seemed to pass
