How Our Thirst for Instant Gratification Has Damaged Our Collective Mental Health
Show Notes

In this week's episode, Uriel & Timi focus in on the concept of instant gratification and posit that our penchant for it has harmed our mental health both as individuals and as a society. While we all know that delaying our gratification is associated with a host of benefits, our desire to obtain things as quickly and easily as possible often overrides what our frontal lobe knows to be true. Our hosts explore various methods that we can use to keep our base desires at bay in favour of pursuing the path that brings us closer to self-actualization and mental equilibrium.
