Disconnect From the Future Self - Deepstash
Disconnect From the Future Self

Disconnect From the Future Self

People sometimes procrastinate because they feel disconnected from their future self. For example, someone might delay improving their diet, because they view the consequences of a bad diet as a problem that someone else (i.e., their future self) will need to deal with.

This phenomenon is called temporal disjunction (or temporal self-discontinuity), and can increase the prioritization of short-term mood.
