Remembering self

Daniel Kahneman, a behavioral scientist, claims we have two selves

Am experiencing self (the now)

And the remembering self (the past)

Often times these two may be in misalignment

Our experiencing self feels the pain of having to exercise and go through pain

Our remembering self remembers the good moments of physical health

Our experiencing self hates the mosquitos from camping

Our remembering self remembers the good memories made with friends

So which self do we trust?

Well the key is to somehow realign them

To do activities that we both enjoy in the moment and also will remember as a good experience

These are the activities we should strive to do more of in our life
