Exercise your patience

Your physical health benefits from exercising your muscles. In a similar way, your mental health benefits from exercising your patience.

Think of something that always frustrates you. Next time you do it, see if you can be more curious, more tolerant, more patient, and less frustrated.

Being in a hurry does not add quality to your life. Being more patient does.

Consider what happens when you demand to get what you desire as soon as you desire it. You cheat yourself out of the valuable anticipation and appreciation for the good things coming your way.

Be patient with people, and everyone benefits more from the relationships. Be patient with new situations, and enable yourself to realize their full value.

Choose to exercise your patience. Discover how strong and useful you can make it.
