How to Make Time Feel Like It Has Gone by Faster

How to Make Time Feel Like It Has Gone by Faster

Simple methods and ways to make it feel like time has gone faster.

Whether your stuck in a class you hate or you can’t wait until school gets out so you can go visit your boyfriend, there are times in class (and many other places) where you just want time to go by faster. Below are some simple ways to make time feel like it has gone by a little faster.

1. Don’t look at the clock

Have you ever heard the phrase “A watched clock never moves?” Well, its true. Or at least it feels that way. When you look at the clock, most times you start calculating how much longer until you get out or something happens. Not only will you sometimes grieve over how much longer you must wait, but it makes time feel as if it were going slower, especially if you check the clock a lot.

2. Keep yourself preoccupied

Keeping yourself busy, no matter how mundane the task may be, does make time feel as if it has gone faster. For example, I personally cannot stand my electrical engineering class. It often feels like it takes forever to get out of it, but when I begin working, even if its not required of me, the time feels as if it had gone by much faster.

3. Entertain yourself

One of the best ways to make time go by faster, is by killing the boredom that you feel while waiting. Do something you enjoy. If you have the free time and your teacher will let you, go play some games on a classroom computer or go on the Internet and read comics. Other ways of doing this include reading, drawing, writing, and in the rare chance that your teacher will let you, talking to others in the class.

4. Don’t think about what happens after your out

This may be hard to do, as you are probably very excited to get out of that one class you hate the most, but think about things other then getting out. Instead, try thinking about the “here and now,” as in focus on whats going on right now, instead of what will be happening.

There aren’t any ways that are currently possible to literally speed up time, only ways to confuse your brain into feeling that time has gone by faster. Hopefully, some of these tips will help you out when you want to get out.

its way more common to talk during class than to go on a classroom computer. not really a rare event since it happens it pretty much every class. do u go to military school or something?

Well the thing about the “Do not think about what happens when you get out” is that, I may forget because I want to go out with my girl,and may forget.
And also here is a tip, make fun of your teacher, for no reason when my teacher says something, I just burst out laughing.
but DON’T do it out load, just giggle to your friends.
