Practicing what you preach


Ancient stoic practices help you walk the talk about things people tend to say, but perhaps not live up to:



– “I don’t care what people think” – Wear odd clothing in public that draws negative attention and reflect on how trivial it is to worry about what others think


– “I don’t do nice things to take credit” – Anonymously buy lunch for a stranger or the person behind you in line


– “Material things aren’t important” – Assign days where you don’t make purchases, overeat, wear nice clothes, or live in abundance, all the while asking yourself “is this the condition I so feared?”

“Practice” implies making it a habit.  We are what we do, not what we say we are.
