How To Master Patience

How to master patience in 10 steps!

Patience is something that we all have to go through from time to time. Whether it be at work, school, home or relationships. There are many ways to work on our patience, here are a few.

how to master patience

 

1. Try to figure out why you are in such a hurry.

Is there a deadline you’re trying to meet? Do you have to rush? Try a to-do list.

 

2. Pinpoint the triggers that often influence you to lose your patience.

What triggers your impatience? What do you notice is a common trend.

 

3. Let go if you can’t do anything about the impatience trigger.

Learn to let it go if it is something out of your control.

 

4. Remind yourself that things take time.

Things do take time, enjoy the journey.

 

5. Remember what matters.

Never forget your priorities and what matters the most.

 

6. Write down your thoughts.

Keep a journal or even a diary to write down how you feel.

 

7. Always remember that you will eventually get what you want.

Things do happen the way we need them to, in the end.

 

8. Always have a positive outlook on life.

Stay positive, redirect the negative thoughts and energy.

 

9. Expect the unexpected.

Expect and prepare for anything.

 

10. Give yourself a break.

Don’t be so hard on yourself.

    Thanks for sharing this with us. I have recently noticed that what I call a lack of patience is actually my anxiety of being somewhere late… So I rush. Making myself aware of this definitely helps me be more ‘patient’. Your tips will help me further for sure!

    I am guilty of being impatient. I’m so used to getting things so quickly it can be hard to sit around and feel like you are doing nothing but waiting.

    I can relate to this post so much! Everyone tells me that I have more patience than anyone else they known. I try passing that on to others because it’s so important to be aware that great things take time!

    As a kindergarten teacher, I have to have a lot of patience and understanding towards my students. I always think about how it takes time for children to learn and do new things. I have trouble using that kind of thinking and having patience when it comes to myself, but I’ll definitely have to keep reminding myself that things take time.

    I was diagnosed with chronic medical conditions almost 10 years ago and man oh man did I have to learn how to be patient and how to say no, otherwise I would end up with a seizure. This is such a good post!

    This was lovely to read. I have just moved in to my first home so my patience has been tested a few times recently aha. I definitely think that pretty much everyone could benefit from mastering patience. 🙂
