self-soothing with procrastination

Wasting time is a form of mindless, misguided self-soothing. We can do what we find mildly comforting in the moment, or we can use our uniquely human capacity to imagine the future, to plan, to delay gratification until after whatever courageous step we need to take is taken. Be it getting out of bed, limiting our time on Facebook, or saving the world. Carpe diem.
