Summary of Article

We often don’t think about patience enough in our daily lives. Patience is the ability to be gentle with yourself and others—and sometimes put an issue on “pause” so you can have time to make the best decision. While we often hear phrases like “I’m low on patience today,” patience is not a finite supply of energy that runs out. Instead, it’s an offshoot of compassion that we can develop. Knowing this, is empowering and encouraging for those that feel their impatience “gets the best of them.” It’s important to identify areas in which we get frustrated and impatient. Then, with increased awareness, we can become more mindful of these areas and choose to respond differently. We can begin to identify when we get triggered and then hit the pause button so that we can respond in a much more positive and loving way. In this Real Simple article, I share tips on how to practice more patience in our daily lives.
