Drawing on a wealth of inspiring snack-sized sources, Time Travel for Beginners shows how we have become drenched by the present. Then it unveils easy, practical ways to use time better. Exploring the psychological, organisational and biological dimensions, Catherine Blyth delves into the secret lives of habits, decisions and motivation; explains why time goes at different rates in different hours and activities, and reveals how cunning time-thieves take our good intentions for a walk. Find out what makes good timing; why some hours trudge while others sprint by; how bright colours, fast food and rapid breathing affect our tempo; how autonomy takes the stress out of pressure, and what hours suit which activities best. Then take a course in time-travel that lets you seize every day and make it feel like a long weekend. Each of us can expect 1000 months on this planet, if we are lucky. Let the next 24 hours usher in the life that you keep meaning to live, if only you had the time. ‘Time Travel for Beginners’ will help you cease clock-watching, stop stockpiling self-reproach and quit chasing white rabbits. Don't mark time: make it work for you.
