Don’t have time for patience? How to fix that

Too impatient to meditate? You’re not the only one. Northeastern University psychologist David DeSteno suggests a shortcut to cultivating more patience: make gratitude a daily habit. In one study, he discovered that people who spent a few minutes writing about something for which they were grateful were more willing to skip a smaller reward for a bigger one later on. Regularly acknowledging the good things in your life can be a very effective way of reminding yourself of your place in the world and the importance of “not being a jerk,” DeSteno tells Nautilus.
