Peoples are impatient, they are frustrated in traffic, they lose their calmness in a queue, they get furious in the office, they could be angry with their colleagues. The main reason for all this is that they expect other results. They forget reality and expect there will no queue, no traffic and the behavior of their colleagues will be fine. Sometimes, this impatience is responsible for making conditions worst.
Mostly, peoples think patience is all about waiting, in fact, it is about your attitude while waiting. Patience gives you a new way of thinking. You will definitely find the solution to your problem when you think with a calm mind. Having patience in life makes your life simple and better. Utilize all your senses and mind to make life decisions. Patience makes you a better person.
1. Don’t let Physical factor dominate you
Hunger, dehydration, slow internet, or climatic condition can be the cause of impatience but don’t let these things dominate you. It is obvious you feel more frustrated when you are hungry or dehydrated. Keep a packet of snacks and a water bottle that helps you to stay calm. Stay calm and save your energy. Try to avoid these things.
2. Know the reason
Everyone has a trigger point of patience, people get furious at some point. Sometimes crazy people, traffic, the queue is responsible for impatience in life. Is getting furious helps you to jump from traffic or helps you to survive with the crazy peoples? If it will not help you to overcome problems, why go under stress.
3. Try to utilize your time
Suppose you are in a queue or in traffic and you know it will take time for your turn. Getting furious at people will not help you. You can utilize your time by reading a book or listening to a podcast that helps you to gain knowledge.
You can turn on your headphone to listen to the music that calms you, you can start a conversation with people, you can take life experiences from old people. I still remember, when I traveled on trains, I usually sit with old age people and tried to learn from their experience of life. It helps me a lot to view life from a new perspective.
4. Be Realistic – things can go out of hand
Be real to your goals, dreams, problem, and most importantly to yourself. Not Every single thing needs your attention in life and not everything is on your hand. Not every time do you need to be frustrated in life. Be relax and have faith that things will work out. Be calm and patient while taking life decisions.
5. Try to find Solution
Problems make you impatient. Everyone has problems but getting furious did not solve your problems. You should focus on the solution instead of the problem Focusing on problems just increases the size of the problem and which is responsible for an increase in stress level. So be solution-centric.
6. Practice patience
Every time you saw a person you get disturbed. You get frustrated with his thoughts. Don’t let these people handle your mind. It is not necessary to respond each time. Let them win in their thoughts. They always try to hit your trigger point. be kind to yourself and remember you need to be patient in life and anger is your enemy.
7. Write your trigger point
It could sound weird but definitely work. Make a list of trigger points that lead to losing your patience. Write down the condition, circumstances, problems, and people that are responsible for your impatience. Do it on a daily basis, and you will see that you will not love to write the same problem every time. Eventually, you try to overcome all conditions that hit your trigger point, and that leads to an impatient version of you.
