Being conscious slows down time

Make Time Slow Down by being Concious

Embracing Conscious Living: "Life's Like a Movie; Don't Be a Passive Viewer!"

When we were little, each year holiday break came so slowly.  The idea of a year sounded so long because for us, when we are 6,7 or even 10 years old, a whole year is a large percentage of the life we can remember.  We are being conscious of what we want to do.  We want to have fun, learn, and grow. We don’t focus on many things that we do as grown-ups.

But as we get older, time goes so much faster.   According to a Harvard study, Professor Bejan discusses the neural signal process speeds up as we grow.  No matter what, as we get older, time flies by, and I will argue that it moves quicker when you are not present and actively controlling what is happening in your life. In order to be slow it down, I am suggesting by being conscious, you will be able to decide how you spend your time. 

The Illusion of Time: “Wait, Wasn’t She Just a Kid?”

Ever heard the phrase “time flies”? As parents, we often brush it off, thinking time crawls when dealing with kids. I remember when people told me that my comment was always, ‘Yeah…. but you are not raising my stubborn, independent daughter who demands fairness and is comfortable fighting for what she wants.  

Now that she is a young adult living in a war zone, I think, “Wasn’t she just a kid yesterday wanting me to lay next to me every day and play with her hair?” Time is funny that way—it sneaks up on you when you’re not looking.

Life’s not a spectator sport; it’s a movie you’re starring in. Conscious living means actively participating, not just letting scenes pass by. It’s about choosing your role, writing your script, and directing your story toward your desired plot twists.

Making Decisions with Purpose: "As your Director, You Can Make Conscious Choices"

Every decision is a crossroads; it is a chance for you to decide what direction your story should take. These crossroads choices may be painful but you never have to suffer. You get to decide whether they will get you to your happily ever after. a chance to steer toward your dreams or meander aimlessly. Being conscious means knowing where you want to go and taking intentional steps to get there. It’s like being the writer of for your own movie.  

The Value of Mindful Time Management: "Avoiding Brain-Numbing WatchingGuide"

Ever feel like time slips through your fingers, lost in a vortex of distractions? Mindful time management is your lifeline. It’s about prioritizing what truly matters, setting boundaries, and making every moment count toward your goals and happiness.  The amazing thing is that when you are spending time thinking about what it is that you desire and you do those items, and not what other people want you to do,  you are not counting down the days to ending something. You are being present and enjoying being a part of the story. 

Conclusion: Write Your Own Story

In a nutshell, life’s too short for autopilot mode or have someone co-write it that does not see your dream. Being conscious means creating your story, directing, and staring in your own movie along with sitting comfortably in the audience and watching it unfold with the special magic.  

 Time flies, but when you’re conscious, you’re the writer, not just a supporting actor.
