Life in 30 minute blocks

I recently had to wear a blood pressure monitor for 24 hours which measured my blood pressure by constricting (very tightly!) a big black band around my arm every 30 minutes while I was awake.

While it was uncomfortable, the thing that really struck me was how quickly 30 minutes goes by. So much so that I got a bit manic by the end of the day with each 30 minute block appearing to come quicker and quicker making me wonder what on earth I’d been doing the past 30 minutes!

Perhaps it’s because I’ve just celebrated my 30th birthday that I’m watching the time that passes a little more closely, I’m not sure. All I know is that having something that brought to my attention that time passing was certainly an illumination experience and made me realise that each 30 minutes gone are ones I’m not getting back!
