Abstract

[The quality of a person’s life is often said to be influenced directly or indirectly by a number of actors. Among these, for example, include a person’s health, their employment, their friends and family, and their leisure. But what exactly is meant by the term leisure? This chapter focuses on understanding the relationship between the three most common meanings of leisure, as time, an activity, and as an experience, and life satisfaction. In the chapter, the author argues that each conceptualization of leisure plays a role in better understanding the relationship between leisure and life satisfaction.]
