Home Care – How to Become More Patient

Home Care in Memorial TX

Patience isn’t an easy virtue for most people. It seems to be human nature to have what you want, when you want it…which is right now. But life rarely flows in that direction. We have to practice patience on an almost daily basis in our encounters with others.

Why are you impatient? Are you always in a hurry? Are you always multitasking? Are you running a tight schedule? Most of us could answer yes to these questions at least part of the time, but if that’s how you’re feeling all of the time, you may run the risk of wearing yourself out or heading for a burnout.

·         If you feel stretched too thin, cross off some of the items on your to-do list.

·         Spread out your tasks so you only have to focus on one at a time. You will be more effective than trying to do too many things at once.

·         Delegate some of the tasks to other people. This helps share the load, which helps you not be so busy, which helps you to be less impatient.

Identify the triggers that are most often responsible for making you lose your patience. Is it particular people, situations, places, phrases or time of day? Write these down. Think about why they may be triggering you to lose patience. Look for patterns. If you are tired and hungry in the evening and that’s when you lose patience, eat supper earlier or do the most important tasks of the day at an earlier time when you’re more patient.

When you feel you’re just at the verge of losing your temper, practice turning away and counting slowly to 10 (or to 20 if necessary). Take a few deep breaths and let them out very slowly. Now turn back. Has your temper abated? Are you more in control?

Write things down. Many people who keep a journal can tell you what they’ve done to become more patient. They have kept a record of things that bothered them and possible solutions. What worked and what didn’t. This information can teach you a lot about yourself.
