Living in the present

From a physics/mathematics perspective the present moment has no duration. But if this was also our experience, then we would not be able to experience time passing. The experienced, “psychological” present moment lasts on average 2-3 seconds. Nevertheless, people who practice mindfulness meditation have a strong capacity for stretching their present moments, and therefore perceive time to pass more slowly.
