Why Time Flies When You Get Older - and How to Slow It Down

by Tony Isaacs
author of
Cancer's Natural Enemy

(The Best Years in Life) My favorite line in one of my alltime favorite songs, "Angel from Montgomery" talks about the years flowing by when you get older "like water over a broken dam" - and lordy ain't it the truth! Seems to ee that 1980 was just a few year ago. Where, oh where, did the time go? Sigh . . .

In part that is because when you are 60 a year is but 1/60th of your life, whereas when you were 10 it was an entire tenth of your life and but 1/20th of your life when you were 20 and your life seemed to stretch out forever before you with so many adventures and experiences yet to come. But the key words there are not the relative ages, they are "adventures and experiences".

For many of us, there are fewer and fewer experiences we have not had when we are older and realize we are not going to be immortal after all. And, we also tend to have fewer adventures. For example, I once used to go camping to different lakes and other places most weekends. These days, I go to the place I call "The Pasture" once every few weeks, and even that is more of a repeated experience than an adventure.

As many of you read this, sitting at your computer on Facebook as you are much of the time, here is something to ponder: Perhaps a big reason the years flow by so quickly is because your life is no longer filled nearly so much with new adventures and experiences. Instead of living for another day or year, you are pretty much living the same day and the same year over and over. And the reason that decades ago seem to not be so far in the past is because that is when you were still growing and adding new things to your life.


The solution is really pretty simple. Get up, go smell the roses and find new things to do and experience. Instead of letting most of your adventures be in the past, make some new ones! Find some new activities, join a club, go to some new places. It need not cost a lot of money - sometimes it could be as simple as taking a ride to a nearby small community you have never been to and perhaps visiting some of their shops. Antique stores can be wonderful for those who like to make all the nostalgia posts and relive the past instead of actually living the future. Garage sales can be fun adventures too, and who knows what treasures you might find? Or coin or stamp collecting, the list is pretty much endless.

Outdoor lovers - and if you aren't one, you should be! - could check their state's state parks and other attractions. And it need not be a weekend outing, great as those can be. A simple day trip, perhaps a bit of hiking or walking, can be very enjoyable.  Become a bird hunter or perhaps amateur nature photographer. Volunteer to be a helper to keep a park clean. Or do the same for your neighborhood of perhaps a stretch of highway. Closer to home, grow a garden - working in the good earth is not only rewarding, it is tremendously healthy. If you have the opportunity, teach your grandkids or other youngsters to garden. They will be forever grateful!

Speaking of volunteering, there are a world of opportunities for you to help others and volunteer work is hugely rewarding. Personally, I can think of little that would be more rewarding than to spend some of your time volunteering at a local nursing or rest home. Our neglected elderly would dearly love the companionship and they have a world of wisdom and their own experiences to share with you to enrich your life even further.

Outdoors or indoors, there is an entire world out there waiting for you - so what are you waiting on? After all, you aren't getting any younger - though if you would like to I have written about how you can do just that as well as how you can live longer, healthier and happier lives and have a 3,000 page website (The Best Years in Life) dedicated to helping you do just that.

Plus there is the companion The Best Years in Life community at Facebook and very soon a weekly newsletter of the same name. When you are at the computer, do yourself a favor and visit us frequently. Otherwise, detach that cyber umbilical cord and start living some new experiences and adventures - and make the rest of your years, many may they be, truly are the best years in life.
