How Not to Hurry

Maybe we’re going at the wrong speed. Maybe if we are constantly rushing, we will miss out on life itself. Let’s let go of the obsession with speed, and instead slow down, stop rushing, and enjoy life.

This reminds me of a story I heard on All Things Considered last night. It examined the well-known but poorly-understood phenomenon of time seeming to pass more quickly as we age. One of the theories had to do with every experience feeling ‘new’ when we’re young, but just getting ‘classified’ when we’re old. So a new meal or a new movie just gets filed away.

Maybe, if we take the time to enjoy every experience, we’ll feel like we live longer.
