7 promises you should make to yourself
- I will listen to my body and mind in stressful situations
If your body is hurt or if you feel stress and tired, try to understand it. Your body and mind always send you signals on whatever happens deep inside you. Learn how to recognize these signs, and you’ll be able to prevent cardiovascular disease, anxiety, and other diseases.
Meditate for 20 minutes every time you feel stressed. You can also exercise or talk to a friend. Enjoy the benefits of these activities, and your life will change completely.
- I will smile every day
Smiling puts you in a better mood and boosts your confidence. A smile can do a lot more than you can imagine. It’s an excellent energy booster and stress reducer. According to studies, even faking a smile helps you feel better. That’s much better than not smiling all day.
Smile to improve your relationship with others. You will get more smiles, and will have a chance for positive outcome in every situation.
- I will live a life of positive expansion
Make a promise that you will live a life of positive expansion. Who knows, maybe you have a hidden talent in life. You won’t even recognize it if you don’t think outside the box. Leave your comfort zone and do things you’ve never done before.
The greatest inventions see the light of the day only when people push boundaries and do all the things they can do.
- I will leave the past behind, and take the lesson with me
Don’t drag your past behind you. Take the lessons, and cut the ties with it. Each lesson will help you improve your life and avoid making the same mistakes over and over again.
- I will always live the life I dream of
Don’t live a life your family or neighbors want you to live. Don’t chase their dreams, and follow your happiness. Being happy is simple. All you have to do is stop satisfying whoever comes your way. Live the life you dream of, and do things your way. Stick to your desires.
- I will remember that relationships are seasonal
People come and go. It’s a fact. You may think you’ve met your best friend or a business partner, and then everything falls apart. Losing a relationship in life is a normal thing. Some relationships are seasonal, and things always come to an end.
Promise to yourself that you will learn your lesson and make a step forward in life.
- I will accept when a change is needed in my life
Changes are important and necessary. Put an end to a relationship, and accept new challenges. Do what’s best for you
You can also have a promise journal and write your promises in it. Give explanation to each promise, and read them over and over again. In that way you will never forget about yourself.
