Why do we break promises to ourselves so often? What do we need to do to stand a better chance of sticking to a commitment we make to ourselves?
The mobile phone insulates us from our own boredom. If there is a moment to spare, we check our phones. We are afraid to miss something. Our phones give us instant gratification, relieving us from... ourselves. But each time we check our phones, we disengage from our own lives. We miss out on the most important thing that we have – the present moment.
