Abstract: This article examines the effects of objective health, subjective health, loneliness, and life satisfaction as antecedents on individuals’ future time perspective (FTP). Drawing on socioemotional selectivity theory and reflecting the mechanisms of resource-based models such as conservation of resources theory and selection, optimization, and compensation, we hypothesize that both the levels and changes across time of objective and subjective health, loneliness, and life satisfaction are associated with FTP. The results of this study, comprising 1,788 participants of the German Socioeconomic Panel (SOEP) and including data from 6 survey waves between 2012 and 2017, provide support for the idea that between-person differences in subjective health, loneliness, and life satisfaction at a fixed point in time as well as within-person changes across time in subjective health and life satisfaction affect future time perspective.
