What happened to February?

February 28, 2013

Recently someone posted this question as their BBM message (a Blackberry user feature for those of you unfamiliar with the term).  February is the shortest month of the year, so it is to be expected that it goes quickly.  A little bit ago, I read an article with some tricks to “slow down” time.  (If I could remember where I read it, I would include a link to the original article – sorry no such memory today).  It wasn’t really about slowing down time, but how to make it feel like days and weeks don’t just rush past you.

The idea, from the article, that I remember best was based in the idea of doing something different.  Following the same routine day after day makes it difficult to differentiate days and as a result they all blend together and seem to fly by.  Think about a time you were on vacation visiting a new place, the days are filled with new and different experiences and as a result you come home after a few days feeling like you have been away forever.  The article encouraged people to add unique and different experiences to their weekends to make them feel longer (e.g., visiting a new park, trying a new food).  This February, without feeling overwhelmed or too busy, I managed to have several specific and non-routine events/experiences that helped this short month, with only 28 days feel full.  Can’t wait to see what March brings.
