Learned a very relatable term today: “報復性熬夜” (revenge bedtime procrastination), a phenomenon in which people who don’t have much control over their daytime life refuse to sleep early in order to regain some sense of freedom during late night hours.

Then there are post-covid “revenge buying” and “revenge saving” — everything we do is a revenge nowadays because of our constantly exacerbated rage ✌🏼

That’s common for people having long hours at work (doing things they don’t like). Typical 8 to 8 in office, arrive home after dinner and shower it’s 10pm, probably won’t just go to sleep and repeat the same routine. A few hours of ‘own time’ is necessary to survive 🙂

This is totally me. You’d figure I’d sleep earlier since having kids, since I’m so tired, but actually the opposite is true.

Is there a related term for when this occurs despite the person having control of their daytime and simply failing to take advantage of it anyways?

I feel retroactively attacked. This was my life back when I had a day job 😂
