Good morning. Could you please tell me which one is correct?

- Sit and wait while problems will solve themselves
- Sit and wait while problems will solve on their own

I think both are correct. Thank you.

    The first sentence is correct, if you omit 'will'.

    -Sit and wait while problems solve themselves.
    I would expect something before 'problems':

    - Sit and wait while you problems solve themselves


    - Sit and wait while the problems solve themselves.
    However, that is not required. It's a stylistic choice, and you may prefer the original version.

    Sit and wait while problems are solving themselves.
    Sit and wait until problems solve themselves.

    We do not know what he really wants to say :)
