I often stay up late when I feel bad. In the moment this feels right - I have a fear of logging in a day that was not “worth it”. Thus, I want to make it “worth it” by staying up late, working on a project or something else (like writing this Zettel at 01:54).
This is just nonsense. I am just borrowing time from the next day, increasing the probability that the next day won’t be “worth it”. The idea sounds romantic, and it seems easy to reason in favor of it, but if you actually think about it rationally, you are just losing valuable time and well-being.
