Does anyone else feel that time is going by so fast now?
I woke up at 5 AM today, went to the gym, went to an office clinic to get my ppd test read, come home, meditated, did some emotional releasing, and it feels like only 4 hours has gone by. Do you think this is a good or bad thing

Maybe its becuase each year is a smaller percentage of your overall years lived, thus each new year feels "faster" or "shorter",
1 year from 9 to 10, will be 10% of your total time spent, thus relatively long, compared to say a year from 49 to 50, which will be 2% of the overall time you have spent alive.
Personally I feel like time is slowing down for me, given Im trying to accomplish greater feats than I had in mind say a few years ago, so now there is not enough time, whereas before there was too much time.
Trying to achieve something, where there is not enough time tends to make a year feel longer, than feeling you have "too much time" and shutting off alot, not paying much attention, not thinking about how best to achieve your goals, etc.
There is the objective time 1 year, but if I pay attention to twice as much information compared to some random guy, my year will feel like 2 years to his 1 year,
OP, you never mentioned how much time had actually passed, compared to the feeling of 4 hours you experienced, so we dont know how fast you are percieving time to pass,
Maybe only 5 hours passed, so time was faster by an hour compared to your feeling?

I used to 'go with the flow'. My days where full of things I didn't have to do, or shouldn't do. Time would go really fast because I thought I had no time for the things that where really import.
These days I work on growing and achieving my life purpose, so I basically plan everyday. I use my time quite efficient (although it could still improve). Time is going less fast now, because I use it efficient almost all of the time.
So I think that wherever I use my time efficient, time isn't going that fast

I once heard a theory on this. The author suggested that time speeds up as one gets older because their world becomes smaller. What I mean by this is, one's experiences grow with time and so there are less new experiences that one utilises. eg...if I am travelling from A to Z for the first time then it appears to take longer due to the anticipation and newness of everything...but if I've travelled that same path over many years the experience appears to be shortened due to the fact that I have done it several times. So time appears to speed up because the older we get, the more experiences we have under our belts...thus time doesn't drag on.
