Who's the One Person You Should Always Keep Your Promise To?

Posted on July 12, 2019

Keeping promises to yourself is a way to focus on self-nurture. This could mean making a commitment to "you" time on a regular basis to tend to yourself. Keep a regular date with yourself to focus on whatever helps you feel calm and centered in your life - and keep that date like you would a date with a friend. Put it on your schedule and stick to it.

Keeping promises to yourself doesn't need to involve a lot of time. It could be committing to reading a few pages of a new book you're excited about over lunch twice a week, or doing some journaling before bed most nights. Get up 10 minutes early to meditate or pray. Keeping your promise of self-nurture should leave you with a feeling of peace and a renewed spirit.


"You" time can also be done while multi-tasking. For instance, walk the dog to your favorite park and take time to smell the flowers along the way. Do some breathing exercises during your commute. Catch up on your favorite podcast or TV show. Whatever promise you make to yourself, keeping it should refill your tank and leave you ready to meet the next challenge.

Here are some ways members of MySpondylitisTeam keep promises they make to themselves:

"Wishing everyone a peaceful and restful evening even if it’s bits of sleep. I pray for those in pain to lessen their hurt and send positive vibes & hugs."

"Went to a Southern Mud Outlaws mega race yesterday...oh my goodness it was so much fun."

"Relaxing with hubby tonight, watching the travel channel and Crafter’s Companion."
