Making Sense of Spontaneity: In-The-Moment Decisions Promote More Meaningful Experiences
When preparing for experiences, when should consumers allocate time to experience-relevant decisions: in advance or in the moment?

In-the-moment decisions also boost future engagement intentions and psychological well-being.
