The richness of our experiences in life can often drastically alter our perception of time. While we may not always think of time in a subjective manner (after all, a minute is a minute, an hour is an hour), the pace at which reality unfolds does, in fact, change throughout the day, depending on myriad factors. Already, you might recall a particularly mundane day at work, just dragging on and becoming painfully long. Conversely, the cliché of time flying when you’re having fun is also a perennial truth — you can become so absorbed in an enjoyable activity that you lose track of time, and before you know it, an hour has gone by.
