Lately I've come across two different sources, talking about future you/future self. The idea is simple: while you are living in the present, you can take decisions that will make your future life a bit easier.
For example: every night before going to bed, I set out my clothes for tomorrow and make sure that all bags or boxes I need to take with me, are at the door.
Those are low effort things to do, but create a more relaxed mind to go to bed. By doing this, future me is ready to take on a new day without worries.
