VALUABLE LESSONS: The Benefits of Being a Patient Person.

Good things really do come to those who wait.

Having patience means being able to wait calmly in the face of frustration or adversity, so anywhere there is frustration or adversity—i.e., nearly everywhere—we have the opportunity to practice it.

Some of these science-backed benefits are detailed below, along with three ways to cultivate more patience in your life.

1. Patient people enjoy better mental health.

2. Patient people are better friends and neighbors.

3. Patience helps us achieve our goals.

4. Patience is linked to good health.

Three ways to cultivate patience:

Reframe the situation.

Practice mindfulness.

Practice gratitude.

We can try to shelter ourselves from frustration and adversity, but they come with the territory of being human. Practicing patience in everyday situations—like with our punctuality-challenged coworker—will not only make life more pleasant in the present, but might also help pave the way for a more satisfying and successful future.
