Time perception, well-being, and mindfulness

The perception of time is subjective. Time seems to pass more rapidly as we grow older. In sickness or pain, the time perception is distorted. Mindfulness practice allows one be at the present moment. subjective perception of time is altered with the moment to moment awareness. We may be in pain or feel sad, but with mindfulness, we will be able to “get out of” the pain or emotional turmoil and focus on the positive aspect of life.
