Call for papers: Special Issue "Leisure and Time Management in Fostering Wellbeing and Health: Current Issues and New Trends"

Leisure has the potential to promote well-being and health more than other areas of human activity. In this sense, it is important to promote the visibility of the incidence of leisure in general, leisure experiences and leisure activities—practicing from physical activity to cultural consumption, hobbies, music, sports, and intergenerational activities—in the physical and mental health of people (of any age, social condition, cultural capital, and changing sociocultural and personal contexts). Moreover, due to the link between a predominantly autonomous use of time and the enjoyment of leisure time, possibilities, capacities, habits, and attitudes (personal, social, cultural) regarding time management are of special importance too.

Based on this broad spectrum of analysis, this Special Issue will present advances in psychosocial knowledge about current issues and new trends in leisure and time management. Contributions based on strong theoretical frameworks that bring novelty to the topics covered, as well as qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-method research are welcome.

Deadline 31 December 2021.
