In our fast-paced world, where every second counts, we increasingly experience the strange sensation that time flies by at an incredible speed. This phenomenon, known as the “fast feeling” or “tachysensia,” has aroused the interest of scientists and specialists who seek to understand its nature and impact on our lives.
What is a “fast sensation”?
“Fast Feeling” is a state in which time seems to speed up and events occur at an unusual speed. People who experience this phenomenon describe it as if “switching to hyper-speed mode,” where everything around them happens at an accelerated pace. They may feel that their thoughts and movements are accelerated and the world around them becomes blurry and elusive.
Causes of the “speed sensation”
Scientists suggest that the “fast feeling” may be caused by a variety of factors, including:
1. Stress and Anxiety: Studies show that high levels of stress and anxiety can alter perceptions of time and cause a sense of acceleration.
2. Cluttered Events: When our lives become routine and predictable, we pay less attention to details and events, which can create the illusion that time is speeding up.
3. Dependence on technology: Constant use of smartphones and other technological devices can accelerate our perception of time, as we are constantly busy and distracted from the world around us.
4. the novelty effect: When we find ourselves in a new situation or environment, our perception of time can change. Everything new and unexplored seems to go by faster.
The effect of the “fast feeling” on our lives
“Feeling fast” can have both positive and negative effects on our lives. On the one hand, it can help us to be more productive and efficient, as we feel that time goes by quickly and we need to make the best use of it. On the other hand, it can cause stress and anxiety, especially when we are unable to keep up with the pace of change.
How to cope with the “fast feeling”
There are some strategies that can help you deal with the “fast feeling” and bring balance back into your life:
1. Practice meditation and mindfulness: Scientists claim that practicing meditation and mindfulness can help slow down time and improve our perception of the world around us.
2. Gradual introduction of new elements into your life: To avoid routine and boredom, it is worth introducing new elements into your life gradually, such as new hobbies or activities.
3. disconnecting from technology: From time to time it is worth disconnecting from smartphones and other technology in order to fully immerse yourself in the real world and slow down the pace.
4. Stress management: Regular exercise, a healthy lifestyle and stress management can help reduce feelings of accelerated time.
