Most of my deaths are caused by a laziness-induced snowball effect.
An example is when the thermal stone is going to lose durability and I know that if I burn that tree over there I can bring it back to orange, but, I also know that If I stay still to get heat from the fire I'll get lazy and probably forget what I was doing and then stay like 5 minutes trying to remember, so I just tank the freezing damage with jellybeans until I finish what I am doing, then, of course, the hounds start baying and my brain just shuts down with the laziness of having to deal with it then I tank one to many hits killing them because I'm too lazy to kite and die to the last one or to the hunger+freezing damage (because I was too lazy to make food).
Because of this I created a bad habit of dropping my items in a organized fashion and then letting the hunger/freezing/both kill me so I can ress using an amulet and get some of that hunger/heat back (rinse and repeat until I finish what I was doing).
I don't die to the heat because I am too lazy to create a base with flingos and having to refuel them or to create a base in the antlion desert and having to micro manage hats, so I just make a summer base in the caves and do stuff there until the summer is gone.
I think I might have a problem.
