Why does time go faster as you get older?

I've never seen a year go so fast.
At 46 I am sure that 56 will be here in less than 10 years. How so? Simply because I go to bed earlier and take more naps. This takes at least 2 conscious hours away each day.
You do the math with me; 2 x 365 days = 730 hours divided by 24 hours = a whooping 30 lost days per year. 10 years x 30 less days makes my next 10 years only about 9 years in length.
