Bringing Back the Wonder


Have you ever wondered why time seems to go so much faster as you get older? It’s a well-known and seemingly universal experience. Psychologists hypothesize that this is due to the fact we use the number of new memories we form to gauge how much time has passed. First memories are dense. When things become routine, we aren’t really paying attention, we aren’t recording the details of that specific experience.

In this episode, we’ll talk about how to stop and notice what is around us, bringing back the wonder of fresh appreciation of every moment, thereby increasing our joy and gratitude.
