By Default there is no pause between page request. In reality, user will pause for a duration of time on every page before moving to another.

In JMeter, we use timers to achieve these pause.

Steps to launch time in JMeter:

Step 1: Right click on Thread Group and Click on Add->Timer->Gaussian Random Timer

Step 2: Change "Deviation(in milliseconds)"

Step 3: Change "Constant Delay Offset (in milliseconds)

Step 4: Save and execute scripts

There are many more timers with some additional plugins that serve different purposes. Depending on your requirement you can choose timer.
