This study assessed the impact of savoring and psychological well-being on perceived satisfaction with life using structural equation modeling. Psychological well-being mediated the contributions of both “savoring the moment” and “anticipating the future” in increasing overall satisfaction with life while “reminiscing about the past” showed no significant impact on satisfaction.
