Due to his nature a human being is an active creature, and the capacity to wait is not given to us since we were born as the natural instinct always urges us to perform actions. The waiting is viewed as a discomforting situation, besides, in the world where the time passes faster and faster people have completely forgotten how to wait. The problem is even deeper as with loosing the skill of waiting we forget how to relax and switch the head off in lots of situations.

The first thing you should do to switch to a more relaxed mode is to stop viewing waiting as a problem. It is a kind of emptiness which requires natural filling, a change of life tempo which occurs despite our will and in improper moment. You should just adjust this waiting for yourself, put it down in your personal schedule – if you wait for the water to boil, read a book, if you are in a traffic jam, repeat French grammar or enjoy music. Do not allow the process of waiting to capture you and shift the focus of your attention.
