Societal demands and numerous obligations are moving people towards an accelerated lifestyle in order to satisfy the high expectations. Although the rapidly growing technological progress enables us to save time for our needs, people tend to neglect the chance to take time for their own benefits. Instead, people are driven by stress and hectic. However, in case of avoiding the possibility to create a counterbalance to a stressed lifestyle, one runs the risk of harming ones health. Depression or Burn-Out are just a few of various mental illnesses, which may develop subsequently. (vgl. Paletta, 2013, sowie 2014; Geißler, 2014; Klein, 2010; Rosa, 2006; Mayer, 2015) This thesis mainly deals with the topic of time and body experiences. The theoretical part focuses on the individual experience of time, taking into account the personal rhythm, proper time (personal time), intersubjective time and the human drive. In addition, the concept of individual experience of time by Fuchs (2009) is described. Furthermore, the adaptability to social requirements is addressed. Finally, the concept of body experience by Bielefeld (1991) is explained in the last section of the theoretical part. In the empirical part of the thesis, results are described, which were gathered based on diaries and include statements of sports students regarding time and body experiences. The results show how sports students perceive their own bodies and respond to their needs in order to lead a healthy lifestyle.
