There are seven attitudinal foundations of mindfulness described by Jon Kabat-Zinn as the “major pillars of mindfulness practice”. The sixth one is Patience.

PATIENCE: is to work with current moment just as it is right now & understanding that things emerge in their own time. Being impatient or trying to force only brings stress.

Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in your mind.”

David G. Allen

You can also repeat the Affirmation as yo breath in and out:

“I have Patience“
