Becoming a more patient person has massive advantages.  It reduces the pressure on your heart; it improves your relationships with others; and it helps you to spread happiness.

The good news is that the world offers you free lessons in patience; they are everywhere.

When your way is blocked by a glut of trolleys, it’s a prime opportunity to explore meditation.  You can analyse your own feelings, play spot-the-impatient-thought, and then work on your breathing, and your quiet focus, until you slow down, and move at the slower pace demanded by the situation.
