At a Standstill

There are times when life is at a standstill - the ball not being our your court. Standstill is defined as
a state characterized by absence of motion or of progress. It is truly a time of waiting.and waiting is not always easy.

Practice Patience 
Practice patience by the day, hour or minute.

Focus on Other Things
By changing our focus we can hold off the waiting item. It no longer holds such a power over our mind.

Do Something Fun. 
Make cookies, listen to your favorite music, take a walk around your neighborhood.

While your project or life may be on a standstill, you don't have to be. Make this time a time of opportunities instead of a time of waiting.

I'd like to add another item to Terry's excellent list of doing something fun: to read a book. In a sense, when we read everything is at a standstill, we are practicing patience as we decode the words and follow the author's story, and we're focusing on different characters, situations and information that often stimulates our imagination. I was off work for a month when I injured my knee a few years ago. Time stood still. I spent the time reading. It was fun! I just wish I could be at a standstill again!
