The current cross-sectional study investigates the relationships between irrational/rational beliefs, procrastination, and life satisfaction in the framework of the psychological distress and health model of rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT) in a sample of Turkish adults (457). The current findings provide additional evidence to the organizational structure of irrational and rational beliefs in the occurrence of procrastination and life satisfaction. The findings notice that primary irrational/rational cognitive processes predict procrastination via secondary irrational/rational cognitive processes. Global negative evaluation self contributes to procrastination and life satisfaction independently. Finally, the findings reveal that irrational/rational beliefs indirectly predict life satisfaction via procrastination. These findings emphasize that the interventions organized within the REBT framework in combating procrastination may play an important role in increasing life satisfaction.
