EP #238: Time Warp & Time Perception in Midlife


What You’ll Learn About Time Warp and Time Perception in Midlife:

  • Why it’s common to feel like you’re in a time warp and struggle with time perception because time feels both different and faster in midlife.
  • Why increasing your awareness of your thoughts about aging is valuable.
  • Why it’s important to be curious about what you think about time is important.
  • Why challenging your thoughts about aging and time when they don’t serve you is a great skill.



Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle Podcast

It’s common for time perception to feel different and faster in midlife. This can freak you out sometimes because it can be hard to understand how it’s affecting you. You can feel like you’re in a time warp.

The strangeness of time perception in midlife was made painfully obvious by a recent Facebook post that featured this anonymous, scroll-stopping idea in a graphic: “When you realize that 1970 and 2022 are as far apart as 1970 and 1918…I’m just going to need a minute.” 

I was floored. Noticing your reaction to this idea is interesting and compelling. Listen today to explore your thoughts and feelings around the passage of time and your perception of time, and learn firsthand why you might feel like you’re experiencing a bit of a midlife time warp!
