Developing Patience in a Fast-paced World
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.

Our on-demand world has created a society of impatient "need to have it now!" people. We expect packages delivered the same day from Amazon. We have food delivered to us pre-packaged, pre-cut, with very little preparation (HelloFresh!). We even turn to digital cliff notes for summaries of popular books instead of taking the time to read it cover-to-cover. Cultivating patience in these modern times isn't easy when everyone around us seems to be impatient. In this journaling challenge, we will help you explore the more patient side of your psychology -- all while providing tips & tricks for you to slow down.
