By taking this course you will become more aware of:

  • How you look at your own past, present and future;

  • How can you strengthen the positive aspects of your temporal profile and
  • How to create more balance in your temporal profile, that will improve not only your personal well-being, but also will be beneficial for others around you across various daily-life situations.

This course will also help you:

  • to become the author of your life’s narrative

What we will do during the course:

The course is based on my extensive research in the field of psychology of time and time perspective. The program provided in the course is evidence based, it has been piloted, further developed and crafted from 2016.

WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY COURSE, DIS | Spring 2019

Once again it was a great pleasure to welcome students from the Positive Psychology spring semester course at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia to take part in my  “Where is my Time” workshop as a field study.

We have explored various aspects of the subjective time experience, individual differences in time perspective and how to apply in practice our research results about how to achieve the balanced time perspective and what are the actual benefits of having this particular time perspective.

WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | PSYCHOLOGY OF TIME COURSEs, DIS | SPRING 2019

This Spring semester of 2019 I was taken by surprise with two sections of my course “Psychology of Time” that I’m teaching at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia. Overall I have 50 students, who are interested in the subject matter! It’s super exciting that students find this topic interesting and decide to take the course! “Where is My Time” workshop becomes an integral part of the course, when students discover their temporal profiles using various instruments and techniques. My current studio space is not that large to host groups of 23 and 27 students, but we did our best to fit in and I think we had good time while working on the “My Time Collage”.

WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | Positive PSYCHOLOGY COURSE, DIS | Summer 2018

Exciting summer day it was today – I was invited to run my “Where is my Time” workshop as a field study for the Positive Psychology summer course at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia. We had a great time exploring own temporal profile, collaging and then reflecting on it, discussing how it can be linked to the state of flow, concept of flourishing, but also what is a balanced time perspective and how to achieve it with simple exercises and techniques.

A balanced time perspective and finding fulfilling work

As Abraham Maslow famously noted, “I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.” – I study time perspective and I see traces of it almost everywhere. Here are some of my time perspectively infused notes while reading “How to find fulfilling work” by Roman Krznaric.

“We are not psychologically ready to deal with the expansion of choice in recent history”

While discussing his concept of ‘hardiness’ Salvatore Maddi notes: When choosing a future, or unfamiliar path, over repeating a past, something familiar and convenient, it is most consistent with our pursuit to elaborate life’s meaning (and finding a fulfilling work), but it also brings ontological anxiety – the fear of uncertainty and possible failure:
