Want To Live ‘Longer’? Read ‘Making Time’ by Steve Taylor
Have you ever wondered where all the years, months, weeks, days, hours, and minutes seem to go? There never seems to be enough time to do anything and life appears to rush by even faster the older we get.
Yet when you think back to your childhood, I bet you remember those never-ending summers and the wait for Christmas that seemed to last for several years. Or perhaps you recall interminable car journeys where you just had to know “Are we nearly there yet?” And of course, you never were.
Making Time by Steve Taylor is a book that not only tells us where all the time goes, but it also advises us on how we can get it back again.
Time has other tricks it plays on us. When we’re bored or in agony, time seems elongated exactly when we don’t want it to be, like the seconds have been stretched out especially just to make us suffer. Yet the happy times just seem to whiz by in a flash.
Again, Making Time tells us not only why this cruel phenomenon happens, but what we can do to stop it.
I personally love this book, because it provides an interesting and practical mix of psychology, behavioural science, physics, and mindfulness.
You can apply the tools and techniques in this book to help you create a new sense of time for yourself, so you can enjoy every moment to the fullest and have more fun, appreciation and enjoyment along the way.
In essence, if you learn to pay attention in a very specific way and focus on particular elements of your experience, you can make every minute count. In this way, it will very much feel like your life is fuller and longer. A great book that I wholeheartedly recommend you ‘make’ the time to read.
