In Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), cognitive fusion and experiential avoidance are recognized as central processes that reduce individual behavior repertory. This study aims to examine the influence of cognitive fusion on experiential avoidance in dairy life. Cognitive Fusion Questionnaire-13 was completed by 10 university students (three males, seven females; mean = 19.6 ± 1.35 years) to measure cognitive fusion as a behavioral tendency. Using an ecological momentary assessment (EMA), 320 responses were collected from participants. During the course of 10 days, we measured mood, content of thoughts, believability, and experiential avoidance. EMA designs were comprised of Event-based (unpleasantness time) and Time-based (three times a day) designs. The results of multilevel modeling revealed that only cognitive fusion as a state affected experiential avoidance according to the answers to unpleasantness time.
