When valuing time promotes subjective well-being

Making seconds count: When valuing time promotes subjective well-being. Alice Lee-Yoon, Ashley V. Whillans. Current Opinion in Psychology,

Abstract: Time is a finite and precious resource, and the way that we value our time can critically shape happiness. In this article, we present a conceptual framework to explain when valuing time can enhance vs. undermine wellbeing. Specifically, we review the emotional benefits of valuing time more than money, and discuss the emotional costs of valuing time like money. Lastly, we suggest directions for future research examining the causes and consequences of the value that we place on our time.
