I was taught by my teachers to sit, which is what I've been doing lately. What I've realized is that you can become comfortable with your impatience. In other words, just sit and watch it for a while, pay attention to how it manifests itself within you. How does it physically feel? Where does it come from, and more importantly, where does it go when it leaves? I've found that looking objectively at such feelings may not make them go away, but it does allow you to become friends with them, accept them, and not to be threatened by them.
Impatience, like all emotions; happiness, sadness, jealousy are just temporary and only exist in our minds. They are not tangible, we cannot hold them, so what we choose to do with them is our decision. I choose to sit with them and make them my friends.
