Patience is a person's ability to wait something out or endure something tedious, without getting riled up. It takes a lot of patience to wait for your braces to come off, to deal with a toddler's temper tantrum, or to build a house out of toothpicks.

Having patience means you can remain calm, even when you've been waiting forever or dealing with something painstakingly slow or trying to teach someone how to do something and they just don't get it. It involves acceptance and tolerance, and is usually easier to have when there's something in it for you at the end. 

Journaling is an effective way to cultivate patience. How so? We will help remind you of times in your life where you have been rewarded for being patient. Reflecting on these times of your life through journaling helps bring those memories to the forefront of your mind. 

Our 21-day challenge to patience will help you identify triggers for impatience, techniques to cultivate more patience, and tips & tricks on why living a patient life is the most rewarding.
