Psychologists tell why time flies fast and slow stretches

Psychologists have told us that the brain processes time differently, depending on what we are doing.

It seems that the queue to the dentist lasts forever, but if we visit some attractions in the park or having fun with friends, while the flies are incredibly fast.

This feeling is familiar to everyone, and scientists from the United Kingdom reported on the fact that there are six categories of experiences in which time passes slowly. These include not only pain and suffering during illness or torture, but intense pleasure like sexual ecstasy. It turns out time is not always runs fast when we get the pleasure. The data category includes the danger and violence, as well as long waiting something or boredom. With the latter often face prison inmates or people who need to stand in long queues.

Elevated levels of concentration and meditation might affect the course of time. A variety of athletes, for example, perceive time much more slowly when they are preparing to carry out their activities or have them performed. Finally, also fall into this category and novelty shock. For example, the perception of time slows down when we're doing something completely new kind of learning a foreign language or a trip on vacation somewhere in the exotic country. Very often, time runs slowly at the moment when nothing actually happens.

But in the sense of fast-flowing time it affects the gradual disappearance of sporadic memories of the human brain. Over time, our memory is weakening, many memories and experiences are erased, and it seems that life flies by at an incredible speed. Also, for accelerated time, when something breaks our usual routine.
