1.  TIME PERSPECTIVE AND SMOKING, OBESITY, AND EXERCISE IN A COMMUNITY SAMPLE 
Objective
Time perspective, a psychological construct reflecting guidance by present or future concerns, may motivate engagement in health behaviors. We examined 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.
