Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2017/Time perspective and happiness
Hey Rachel, I did some research on time perspective for a past unit and it seemed having a balanced time perspective had the strongest link with happiness i.e. being flexible in switching between perspectives based on the situation, personal resources etc. This chapter provides a critical summary of research on BTP up to 2015. Stolarski, M., Wiberg, B., & Osin, E. (2015). Assessing temporal harmony: The issue of a balanced time perspective. In Time Perspective Theory; Review, Research and Application (pp. 57-71). Springer International Publishing.
This article might also be useful for looking at the relationship of each particular dimension with mood: Stolarski, M., Matthews, G., Postek, S., Zimbardo, P. G., & Bitner, J. (2014). How we feel is a matter of time: Relationships between time perspectives and mood. Journal of Happiness Studies, 15, 809-827. doi:10.1007/s10902-013-9450-y

Hi Rachel, We have similar topics (I am doing Time perspective and relationships). I have also found research which suggests a balanced time perspective is a strong predictor of well-being and happiness, however, what a balanced time perspective actually is seems unclear as there has been contradictory findings. This book chapter gives quite a bit of info on balanced time perspective and its relationship with well-being: Boniwell, I., & Zimbardo, P. G. (2015). Balancing time perspective in pursuit of optimal functioning. Positive Psychology in Practice: Promoting Human Flourishing in Work, Health, Education, and Everyday Life, Second Edition, 223-236.] Another good book which lots of info on time perspective is: Zimbardo, P., & Boyd, J. (2008). The time paradox: The new psychology of time that will change your life. New York, NY: Free Press. Its available in the UC library (BF 468. Z56) for 7 days. Hope this helps. Good luck with your chapter.--WJDHR (discuss • contribs) 10:46, 2 September 2017 (UTC)
Hi Rachel, it might be interesting to look at time perspective across cultures. Theres some interesting studies using the Zimbardo Stanford time perspective inventory as a measure. https://scholar.google.com.au/scholar?hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C5&as_vis=1&q=zimbardo+time+perspective+inventory+culture&btnG= this google scholar search will show you a heap of studies done using different cultural samples. --U3099598 (discuss • contribs) 04:50, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
