Life can be hard sometimes, and sometimes we feel like we can’t go on. When news is overwhelming and the people around you make it harder to feel good about yourself. It is important that we find ways to add a bit more positivity to our lives. We can feel happier and more positive overall by making small life changes. One way to do that is by making promises to yourself and keeping them.

If you’re looking for new ways to take care of yourself in a stressful world or just feeling overwhelmed by life. here are four promises that might help:

Promise to take care of yourself.

Taking care of ourselves is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves when we are having a difficult time. However, sometimes it may feel impossible, especially when dealing with stress or feeling beaten down by life. 

We can take care of ourselves in many ways, such as taking a day off from work. Some people find that a hobby can clear their minds, while others may find that herbal remedies such as tea or CBD products like tinctures or a rose gold vape pen can help them to relax and improve their confidence.

When you feel confident with yourself, it’s easier to recover from a bad day and improve your mood.

Promise to stop letting people use you.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where someone took advantage of your kindness? Maybe they were using your generosity to get something from you, or maybe they were manipulating you into doing what they wanted against your own interests.

Regardless of the scenario, if someone is trying to use you for their own benefit, it’s time to stop letting them do that. If someone uses their presence as leverage over others to get what they want, it can be incredibly frustrating and exhausting for those involved. The best thing we can do as humans is to learn how not to let others take advantage of us and make sure our needs are met first before we start helping others out with theirs.

Promise to let go of anger.

Anger is a very powerful emotion. It can make you feel strong and confident but can also negatively affect your health and well-being. For example, anger tends to cause tension in the body, leading to headaches or stomach problems. In addition, anger can be an excuse for being rude and getting into conflicts with other people that don’t need to happen.

Your anger might even be masking something else: Depression is often difficult for people to admit when they feel sad all the time and are angry at everything around them (even if they don’t know why). If this sounds like something you may be dealing with, then it might be helpful for you to talk about your feelings with someone close who cares about you—like a parent or friend—or get professional help from a therapist or doctor who specializes in mental health issues.

Promise to start your own happiness.

The first step to start is setting a time and place to meet yourself. This can be as simple or elaborate as you’d like, but it should be something you look forward to regularly doing. For example, some people choose to find a special spot in nature where they can go for a walk on their own and reflect on their life, while others prefer the privacy of their own home or office space. Whatever works best for you will do just fine if you take time for yourself.


The bottom line is that we all have the power to change our lives. The bad news is that there are no shortcuts and nothing comes easy. So if you want to make positive changes in your life, be prepared for a long journey full of challenges, but with some help, you can start your road to positive living.
