Abstract [en]

We propose that emotional well-being in everyday life is partially related to the balance ofpositive and negative affect associated with everyday routine activities. Factors that interferewith positive affect associated with such activities would therefore have negative impacts onemotional well-being. Supporting that time pressure is one such factor, we find in Study 1 fora representative sample of Swedish employees (n = 1,507) answering a survey questionnairethat emotional well-being has a negative relationship to time pressure. In Study 2 we test thehypothesis that the negative effect of time pressure on emotional well-being is jointlymediated by impediment to goal progress and time stress. In another survey questionnaire asample of Swedish employees (n = 240) answered retrospective questions about emotionalwell-being at work and off work, experienced impediment to goal progress, experienced timepressure, and stress-related symptoms. Statistical mediation analyses supported the proposedhypothesis.
