To Cleanse Or to Enjoy? the Effect of Affectively Tagged Windfall Time on Consumption Choice

We investigate how consumption changes when people gain a windfall block of time with affective tags (positive vs. negative). We find an asymmetrical effect: negative windfall time encourages hedonic (vs. utilitarian) activities, supporting a mood regulation account. However, positive windfall time does not seem to influence the consumption pattern.
