Lost your sense of time during the pandemic? You’re not alone

Researchers at UC Irvine say this phenomenon — temporal disintegration — is the result of the pandemic and the collective, unaddressed trauma caused by it, in addition to other challenges that came with 2020: unemployment, financial downturns, supply shortages, death, loss, global warming, political polarization and major social upheaval. E. Alison Holman, a professor of nursing at the university, said in a recent interview she’s been studying the relationship between trauma and the perception of time for decades.
