Examining adolescents’ well-being: How do the orientations to happiness relate to their leisure time activities?


Wagner, Lisa; Conrad, Daniela; Gajić, Najdana; Kácha, Ondřej; Martinović, Katarina; Skvortsova, Aleksandrina; van Doeselaar, Lotte; Voitenko, Darja (2014). Examining adolescents’ well-being: How do the orientations to happiness relate to their leisure time activities? Journal of European Psychology Students (JEPS), 5(2):8-12.

Abstract

Three ways of achieving happiness—life of pleasure, life of engagement, and life of meaning (Seligman, 2002)—have been examined among adult samples. However, very few studies have investigated these orientations to happiness in non-adult populations. Numerous studies have found that different ways of spending leisure time affect the psychological well-being of adolescents. Bringing these two perspectives together, the aim of the present study is to identify the extent to which orientations to happiness are related to well-being and choice of leisure time activities in a sample of adolescents from eight European countries.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
