Patience improves with practice. We are given many opportunities to practice every day.
It may seem like sarcasm to say we’re given many opportunities to practice patience, but if we can get ourselves to look at the frustrating times when kids test our patience as opportunities, sometimes it helps us change perspective. Here are a few more tips for increasing your patience:
- Start to notice what’s most likely to trigger your frustration so you can be proactive about changing it or learning to deal with it.
- Plan fewer things to do each day.
- Prioritize sleep and basic self care like eating and staying hydrated – you lose capacity to be patient without sleep, food or water.
