9 things to do when you’re waiting in a queue

Smartphone technology has removed the pleasure of boredom and the gift of patience. Even if we want to, it is no longer possible to get bored, not even if we are standing in a queue. All you need to do is take out your smartphone and check your email, go on Facebook, or some other website, or play some unbelievably pointless game. Carolyn Gregoire of the Huffington Post has drawn up a list of nine alternative things for us to do in a queue... without our smartphones:  

1. Smile at a stranger.
2. Practice meditation, clearing your thoughts and directing your full awareness to the visual and auditory stimuli in your present environment.
3. Let someone who’s in a rush cut in front of you.
4. Make a mental list of things you’re grateful for.
5. Take some deep breaths.
6. Silently repeat a mantra for inner peace.
7. Daydream.
8. Send a kind thought to someone you love.
9. Read a book.
