內容簡介

「罕見的佳作,完美地將個人的故事結合文化歷史,這是一本豐富又機巧的書」─崔斯坦‧杭特,《帝國城市:成就大英帝國的十座殖民城市》作者

每當家人朋友問候你「最近過得如何?」,你的回答是否都是千篇一律的「最近很忙」?科技尚未掌控人類生活的時候,我們的生活很規律,日出而作,日落而息,但現在只要一支智慧型手機就可以跨越時區,整個世界沉迷於「快速」中,崇尚久而久之反而無法跳出這個牢籠,變成時間的奴隸。

作者蒐集許多最新腦神經科學、心理學的研究來說明,我們對於時間的認知如何塑造了我們的生活,要促進、破壞都只需要一點點改變,為何我們越希望時間慢下來,卻覺得時間過得更快,並且教你一些改變的方法,例如每天給自己一點時間遠離社交軟體,大腦收到社交軟體的通知時,會產生多巴胺,但是太過於依賴反而變成上癮、每天要自然的呼吸,因為每天作在電腦前面呼吸會變得不順暢,如何重新調整自己的生理時鐘,以及什麼時間進行什麼任務效果會更好。

Why has time sped up?
Why is there never enough?
How can you make it yours again?
On Time reveals why time sped up, why there never seems to be enough, and how to make it yours again.

We have more time than ever: each of us can expect a thousand months on this planet, if we’re lucky. Yet we feel time poor.

This is because our world is addicted to fast and we have become its servant. Instead of grasping the liberating potential of technology, many of us are stuck in a doomed race to outpace hurry.

Catherine Blyth combines cutting-edge research in neuroscience and psychology with stories ranging from Leonardo da Vince to Anna Wintour, Kant, and Keith Richards, to reveal timeless truths about humanity’s finest invention and how it shapes our lives.

Angry, witty and enlightening, On Time is a handbook for navigating a fast-forward world that asks the questions productivity guides ignore such as why time speeds up when you long for it to slow down, how to reset your body clock, and what hours suit which activities best.

So stop clock-watching and quit chasing white rabbits. Rediscover how time can be your servant.
