Temporal Aspects of Life Satisfaction
Eriksson, Lina; Rice, James Mahmud; Goodin, Robert E.
Social Indicators Research, v80 n3 p511-533 Feb 2007
Time pressure is a familiar phenomenon. The quantity of spare time people have clearly effects their satisfaction with their leisure and with their life as a whole. But so too, we show, does how much control people have over how much spare time they have. We measure this through an indicator of "discretionary time", which proves to be equally or more important than spare time itself in these connections.
