Monday Mojo for Caregivers – Practicing Patience for a Balanced Life
Hello and welcome to Monday Mojo for Caregivers. We’re told from a very early age that patience is a virtue. However, very few of us are ever really shown or taught how to be patient. Patience is not something we have; it is something we consciously do. Patience is like any other hard-earned discipline: The more we practice it, the more patient we become.
Here are concrete ways to cultivate patience:
- Learn how to breathe
When you notice yourself getting anxious and overly attached to end results, take a quick time out. Have the discipline to drop everything, sit still and breathe with ease. A few minutes should be enough. Let it go. You’ll feel relieved.
- Take notes, analyze, and strategize
Like any area you want to improve in your life, you must analyze where you right now. In which areas do you need more patience? Write these areas down and star the most important area. If you were more patient in this area, how would that improve your life? Find your motivation.
