The past and time

My carpet cleaner's wife has been afflicted with Alzheimer's and he has had to place her in a "home." As you can imagine, the emotional turmoil has been fierce for him. A counselor told him that he would have to decide whether he would live in the past or move on with his life into the future. If he chose to live in the past, the counselor said, time will seem move faster.

Is that true? If we live in the past, will time seem to move faster?
