Master the Calm Art of Patience

7 Practical Measures

In order to develop patience one must employ it in everyday life. Here are 7 things you can do to prevent impatience:

1.    Breath. When you find yourself becoming impatient, angry, or irritable, take a deep breath and let it out slowly. Do this a few times.

2.    Relax. Tell yourself to relax. Scan your body for tension. Invite the tension to release.

3.    Talk to yourself. Tell yourself that everything is in its place and events are unfolding, so it's OK to wait.

4.    Be aware of your emotions, especially anger and anxiety. Anger and anxiety waste energy. They are not helpful.

5.    Act when the time is right. Patience is not procrastination. It is releasing action only when the correct moment has arrived.

6.    Keep life simple. Don't over-schedule. Give yourself room to breathe.

7.    Think the best of people and you can avoid complications in relationships.
