OBJECTIVE: To examine associations between time perspective and smoking, body mass index, and exercise.
METHODS: In this community-based survey, adults reported smoking and exercise habits and weight and height and completed the Zimbardo Time Perspective Inventory.
RESULTS: Subjects (N=265) who were more future oriented reported more frequent exercise, but were more likely to smoke. Fatalistic and hedonistic present orientations were not associated with smoking, obesity, or exercise.
CONCLUSIONS: Time perspective is not consistently associated with common health behaviors in adults.
