Well, that's because one is punishment and the other is relaxation.
To be fair a 15 minute recess would feel like nothing to a kid, and a 15 minute unskippable YouTube ad would feel like eternity to an adult.
Things change when you are older. Example: Now I'm totally into spankings and naptime.
I feel like it has something to do with someones relative perception of time. Like when compared to an adult a child has lived less so the same duration of time is actually a larger percentage of their time alive and thus feels longer.
Same idea when a kid gets upset as if somethings the worst thing ever, to them and their relatively limited experiences it very well could be the worst thing ever to them.
Long way of saying, "Time is relative to each person/object"
It goes back to the same thing everyone seems to say, that when they were in elementary school, it seemed like summer break was six months long. I remember when I was seven, my mom told me in reality it was about 2 1/2 months and having my mind blown. I also remember freaking out over a 15-20 minute wait and it seeming like forever.
It is definitely true that time seemingly speeds up as you get older. I'm in my mid-30s now and each year seems to pass faster than the last.
I'm going to start putting my coworkers in time out!
Relativity my dudes
15 minutes for recess also felt like a long time
What? How? For young me 15 minutes felt like 5 minutes!
It sure did, wow! I don't know why I remember that.
15? We had 30.
Oh not nothing. A respite. An escape.
Compared to the life you lived, 15 minutes feel like nothing when you are older (teenage up mainly). But when you are a kid and have lived a handful of years, it is a larger amount of your life so it feels significantly longer. I imagine my 15 minute break feels a lot shorter for someone twice my age.
You guys are getting 15 minute breaks?
"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so."
The rule of thumb is no more than 1 minute of time out per year old.
Ummm... you only got 15min timeouts?
That's cause you actually get to do stuff when you're on break
Yeah one is negative so feels longer. The other is positive so it gors by fast.
Maybe because you WANT to be on a break- no kid wants to be on a time out
I hate how accurate this is. I hate it even more being that I'm actually on break and realized idk where the last 10mins went-
But those hour long breaks draggggg on.
It did feel like nothing as a kid as wellfor me
This is similar to: one hour before work goes by so fast but the last hour of work just draaaaags.
who's documented this ?
Recently took two weeks off of work and it felt like an hour.
Try to sit still and do nothing for 15 minutes. Still feels like a long time.
i am always work .I love work
