Around the world, and across the income spectrum, people feel increasingly pressed for time--that is they feel like they have too many things to do and not enough time in the day to do them. These rising rates of time pressure can have crushing effects for health, happiness, and social relationships.

Presenter Ashley Whillans, an Assistant Professor at Harvard Business School, will outline empirically-based strategies that individuals, organizations, and policy makers can employ to combat rising feelings of time stress among diverse populations. These strategies target both daily and more major life decisions--from changing commutes to changing jobs to simply spending small windfalls of free time more deliberately each and every day.
