Discover What You Can Do Without

Set yourself a period of some days in which you will be content with very small amounts of food, and the cheapest kind, with coarse clothing, and say to yourself 'is this what I was afraid of?'

Why value hardship?

The Stoics greatly valued hardship, they routinely practiced poverty or put themselves through mild hardship.

Benefits Of Self Imposed Hardship:

Do not lament (complain) about misfortune.

Instead, rejoice that you are the sort of person who can undergo misfortune without letting it upset you.

If you want to have time for your mind, you must either be poor or resemble the poor.

Frugality is just voluntary poverty.
