Our brains have a mechanism for measuring time. Essentially there are a group of neurons that are located in the frontal cortex of the brain that fire at different rates into a accumulator. When we want to gauge how much time has passed, we access this accumulator for how many times the neurons have fired.
This is how we perceive the mid range time... that is the time frame measured in seconds and minutes.

...summing up the results of more than three decades of investigations of anomalous statistical regularities in a wide range of physical, chemical, and biological processes, from radioactive decay to the rates of biochemical reactions.
The evidence points unambiguously to the existence of a previously unknown relationship between fluctuations in the rates of radioactive and other processes in the laboratory, and major astronomical cycles, including the day, month, and year.

Is it that your brain increases the "sampling rate" at which it processes the information?
