Putting a Price on Time Subtracts From Happiness
Time isِ money, asِ the sayingِ goes.
In a series ofِ studies, researchers foundِ that whenِ people wereِ prompted toِ thinkِ ofِ their time inِ terms ofِ money, theyِ felt moreِ impatient andِ received lessِ enjoyment fromِ leisurely activities, suchِ asِ surfing theِ Web orِ listening toِ music, unlessِ theyِ were beingِ paid toِ doِ so.
Instead, theyِ write, people report feeling moreِ time pressure.
