Slow down Time: 5 Amazing Ways to Trick Your Brain

At first thought, slowing down time seems like a concept that belongs in science-fiction, but what if we could trick our brain into believing we can achieve it?Perception of time is relative. For a baby who just turned one year old, a year is 100% of their life, whereas by the time someone has celebrated their 18th birthday, one year is just 5.56% of their life.

We live through more years as we get older, so our brain perceives that each subsequent year happens more quickly because it’s a smaller portion of our lives.

So, if time is largely a matter of perception, does that mean it can be slowed? Thankfully, the answer is a resounding yes. Here are 5 powerful tricks to help you slow down time through perception.
