Can We Slow Down Time?

My husband sent me this article on the phenomenon that makes it feel as if time is speeding up as we get older:

AH, the languorous days of endless summer! Who among us doesn’t remember those days and wonder wistfully where they’ve gone? Why does time seem to speed up as we age? Even the summer solstice — the longest, sunniest day of the year — seems to have passed in a flash . . .

Don’t despair. I am happy to tell you that the apparent velocity of time is a big fat cognitive illusion and happy to say there may be a way to slow the velocity of our later lives.

You’ll have to read the article to get the answer, but I will say that it has something to do with what business travelers have already figured out.
