Enhanced coping skills
Patience is a crucial skill for a calm and centered life. Check out all these reasons for keeping—and developing—your patience. Some of us are better at waiting than others—especially when it’s for something that may be life-changing. People who practice mindfulness tend to cope with such wait-and-see stress better than others and are more likely to maintain an optimistic mindset throughout, according to research in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. These benefits seem to be most pronounced among these who tend to be less optimistic about outcomes before they start to meditate.
