1 – Take a day where you make patience your goal for the entire day.
2 – Slow down.
3 – Practice delaying gratification.
4 – Practice thinking before you speak. If we’re patient, pause and go over what we want to say, we can avoid hurting or offending others.
5 – Take deep breaths to try to relax when you find yourself getting impatient. Whenever we are stressed we tend to lose our patience. Remember your pranayama or yoga breathing, try to switch from grumpy and impaitent to calm and relaxed by taking just a little time to breathe. The results will be encouraging.
6 – Identify the things that are causing you to become stressed out.
7 – Don’t rush things. You don't have to change the world in one day.
8 – Think back to a time that you had to wait for something which turned out to be rewarding.
9 – Next time you have to wait for something, take time to do something fun, change your mind set, practise deep breathing and meditate.
10 – Take the time to help others. For example, having to deal with the elderly and the hearing impaired definitely requires patience. By helping others on a regular basis, such as the elderly, you will find yourself slowing down a bit and becoming more patient. Patience can bring out the compassionate side of you.
11 – Plan ahead. Instead of rushing, give yourself enough time and allow for unforeseen circumstances. For example: Plan to leave home earlier than you normally would. Give yourself sufficient time to finish a project by the due date, instead of waiting until the last minute.
12 – Practice Acceptance.
-You need to remind yourself that sometimes it takes longer to reach your outcome. Meditation helps to put life into prospective.
-At times people disappoint you. Many times your expectation takes time to materialize. It is not what happens that matters but how you react.
-Do something constructive while waiting. It keeps your mind and your time occupied and helps you avoid unnecessary stress from worrying and becoming anxious and uptight.
13 – Cultivate Faith.
-Difficulties and tragedies happen. Believe that there is an advantage behind every misfortune, there is a silver lining. Look at difficulties as lifes lessons they help us examine, ask questions, is there more to life than what I am experiencing right now, why am I always frustrated.
- Meditation will help you stay calm when you are faced with adversities. Find more methods or seek advice to help you cope and help you get answers.
