Dr Seuss questions, 'How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?' This seems a timely quote as once again it's the festive season and most people are saying it seems hardly any time since last Christmas.

We are also reflecting on 2015 and what we have achieved and the things still on our 'to do' list. When we take the time to list things we have actually done this year it is likely we will realise we have done a great deal. There are also many achievements we will have forgotten. It is easy to forget something once it's done as we move on to the next thing on the list.

Is time passing too quickly for your liking? Do you want time to slow down? Do you just want more hours so you can pack more activities into each day? Everyone has the same number of hours in their day but how each person uses that time will vary. How much time one thinks one has will differ.

There is all sort of advice in print and on the internet of ways to pack more into your day by being efficient. There are tips for delegating and outsourcing tasks to free up some of your time. Unfortunately, there can be a temptation to take on more responsibilities and try to achieve more with the time that has been made available.

Some people feel the way to control time is to simplify life, declutter and slow down. For these people, impressing others is not of great importance. They are likely to attempt to live in the moment and feel gratitude for the good in their life.

Whilst most people seem to feel time passes too quickly there are those who feel the opposite. These may be lonely people who are unable to get out much and don't have visitors. They may be elderly people who are unable to participate in activities they used to enjoy. Sometimes it is difficult for these people to find ways to make the day pass. Nights may also seem very long e4specially if they have trouble sleeping due to physical pain or emotional stress.

If you lament that you never have enough time, it might be worth thinking of the opposite experience. Perhaps it would be worse if every day and night seemed to drag.
