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

PRACTICE

REFLECT: As you settle in a formal meditation or sit and find time to reflect, just focus on Breathing

RESPOND: At any time when thoughts come and if you feel getting lost, just come back to breathing. Try and bring a smile on your face, a feeling of relaxation and try to simply be present without any Agenda or Goal.

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

“I have Patience“
