The Art of Patience
Many of us are impatient at times. And when we lose control of our patience it hurts not only us, but those around us. Impatience raises our stress levels and over time can even inflict physical harm to our bodies. You see examples of impatience and patience throughout each day; when you’re stuck in traffic, when you’re waiting in line for the grocery store, and when your children are taking too long to get ready for school in the morning. Even if you don’t rate your own level of personal patience as being very high, the good news is that with practice, you too can learn to be more patient in your life.
