What kind of music do you listen to? What kind of games do you play? What kind of things do you read? How often do you use an electronic device while travelling, to past the time?

Have you ever notice that, when you’re not using it, time slows down a little bit, or it looks like it slows down. 

I notice that we use technology as a means of escape for boredom or to make use of the long times on transit. I guess, from there, it wouldn’t be a surprise how many are often in a hurry, given that their perception of time is accelerated and they think everyone is slower than they actually are. 

So try it out. Unplug from your device on the way to work/school. What do you notice? Does time go slower? Do you notice an odd sign that you’ve never seen before? Do buildings look odd or fascinating? 

While technology allows us to connect and entertain ourselves in a flash, we should always remember that we ourselves are not as fast, not matter how much we wish it to be so.
