After reviewing the basic principles of the Stoic system, we can put into practice the twelve exercises:

1. Examine your impressions.

2. Remind yourself of the impermanence of things.

3. The reserve clause.

4. How can I use virtue here and now?

5. Pause and take a deep breath.

6. Try to “Other-ize.” Put yourself in someone else’s shoes and imagine how you’d react if the same thing happened to them.

7. Speak little and well.

8. Choose your company well.

9. Respond to insults with humor.

10. Don’t speak too much about yourself.

11. Speak without judging.
