How to remain patient and positive in any situations?

  • Take deep, slow breaths, and count to 10.Doing this helps slow your heart rate, relaxes your body, and emotionally distances you from the situation. If you’re feeling really impatient, you might need to do a longer count, or do this several times.
  • Remind yourself that your impatience rarely gets others to move faster and can lead to silly mistakes — in fact, it can interfere with other people’s ability to perform complex or highly-skilled work. All you are doing is creating more stress in an already stressful situation.
  • Make yourself speak and move more slowly. It will appear to others as if you’re calm — and, by “acting” patient, you can often “feel” more patient.
