These days it's easy to lose patience, everything happens fast and we are called to make decisions all the time. We feel the pressure to be the best, to excel and be an accomplished person on every level of our lives. This can be daunting and some bursts of irritability may occur. We also tend to suppress emotions, desires and sometimes opinions, which builds up frustration and lack of patience.
Luckily, we have some tools to help us build patience. Yoga for starters it's a great practice that tunes in our body and mind, that draws us to the present moment thus leaving us calmer. If you are interested in starting yoga, sign up for an online or presential class since it will help you to keep a consistent practice but also give you the tools and knowledge needed to harvest the results and well-being.
You can also resort to crystals that can help support you during difficult times, when you feel impatient or even dealing with the lack of patience from others. Here are some crystals that can help you build up patience:
