Revenge bedtime procrastination

The term "bedtime procrastination" was coined in 2014 by Dr Floor Kroese and is defined as going to bed later than planned while not having any external circumstances for doing it.

Revenge bedtime procrastination is the phenomenon where people who don't have much control over their daytime life refuse to sleep early to regain some sense of freedom during late-night hours. Instead of going to bed, you decide to scroll on social media at the expense of your sleep.

The more we understand what’s driving our panic, the more we can be free of it. When our awareness and understanding grow brighter, the obscurity of panic and fear recedes.

This type of practice takes some willingness and courage. All we have to fear is fear itself.

Why we fail to motivate ourselves

Two factors contribute to a lack of motivation.

  • Lack of drive. The object of our goals may just not be worthwhile.
  • Pain from progress. Something might be in the way of our progress. It may be fears, but most often, it is drudgery, effort or boredom.

The two factors can work separately. We may have a few problems but little drive and thus don't move ahead. Or our goal could be very desirous, but a proportionately large pain can hinder us from moving forward.

  • Weather predictions, even with our amazing technological advances, are still laughably wrong.
  • The founder of the ‘chaos’ theory, Edward Lorenz, a meteorologist and mathematician, discovered deterministic chaos in 1961 while trying to predict the weather using a simple computer.
  • A small decimal number rounding off created a huge difference in the final outcome, leading to the creation of a seminal paper on the Butterfly Effect.
