How to Develop Patience

In this meditation, we'll explore strategies to help you become more patient in your work, relationships, parenting, and daily life.

Let's start by settling into a

comfortable posture, which could

be sitting, lying down or standing.

If it feels okay to do so,

you can let your eyes close.

And we'll take one deep breath together.

In through the nose.

And slowly out through the mouth.

Inviting the jaw to relax.

The shoulders can be at ease.

And the hands on the belly.

Letting the breath fall back

into its natural rhythm.

And in this meditation were going

to work with cultivating patience,

and at the heart of that is being

able to be with the moment as it is.

So the majority of this

meditation will be in silence.

My encouragement will be to explore

being very still in your body.

And when you notice that desire to

move or to shift or for it to be over,

just practice relaxing into that and

bring the attention back to the breath.

In this way, you're training yourself

to be with the moment as it is.

I'll give you some time in silence to

practice and see you at the finish line.

Noticing what you're feeling

in your body and your mind.

If there's any sense of impatience

or discomfort, practicing being

with that to see that we can

be with it and not react to it.

So as we come to a close, let's

take one deep breath together.

In through the nose.

Out through the mouth.

And when you're ready, you can start to

move again and allow your eyes to open.

Great job.

So as you go about your day today, notice

when impatience arises and instead of

immediately reacting to it, become curious

about it, bring your awareness to it and

see that, Oh, you can stay here with it.

You can stay here with it.

So thank you for your practice.

And until we talk again, take care.
