Have you ever noticed that time seems to fly more rapidly through expectation and familiarity? For example, when I'm driving somewhere I've never been before and I'm surrounded by unfamiliar scenery, the trip seems to take a long time.  But then when returning from that same place, although it takes exactly the same amount of time, it seems to take much less time.  The novelty of routine journeys can become routine, so take a different route from time to time to help slow down the clock.
When our days become as identical as slats in a mini-blind, blending together, then even months can feel like a day.  To avoid this monotony, look for ways to add variety to your day - to "stop" time, in a sense.  If you're in a demanding job you might use your lunch hours to explore your city, visit the zoo, and find something different to break up what might otherwise be a solid block of similar stressful days (daze?) 
Whenever you take on a new hobby or learn a new skill it's a way to slow the passage of time...that's why the days of your youth seemed so full and long...they were filled with learning and discovery!  Sadly for many "learning" ended when schooling ended...this doesn't have to be so!  Don't be afraid to be a beginner...there's always something new to be learned!
Another way to slow down the clock is to review the past.  Journaling is an excellent way to keep the past from seeming to be a blur of years; rather it chronicles an interesting pattern of circumstances and achievements. 
Don't let time race through your life like a sports car with you barely in the driver's seat!  With today's suggestions and a bit of your own imagination you should be able to grab the wheel and steady the tires.  Plan your days with cruising, curves, and straight-a-ways in mind and breathe in the wind of each moment!
