Unintended consequences
Too true that modern amenities of technology and comfort oft lead to a more heightened level of distress and stress when we are removed from them. Very good to condition oneself to their absence from time to time...

Stoicism
Every now and then it’s god to deprive yourself from luxuries/happiness in order to appreciate the luxuries/happiness when you have it... it’s not about being emotionless, it’s about refraining yourself from feeling sorrow

STOICISM
I appreciated the practice on how you can appreciate everything we have in life by remembering to go without life’s simple luxuries or all the things we take for granted. I need to make this a daily part of life... 🙏🏼

Stoic
I learned what stoicism is and the idea of being happy in the absence of sorrow. I like the idea of just being happy with what you have and taking steps to appreciate what you have more. That is more beneficial than shiny new things.

Stoicism
This is an interesting thought on happiness. It’s true that when you get something new, you adapt to it and it isn’t as special anymore. It’s a very different way to look at life.

Guess I’m A Stoic
I never realized there was a name and philosophy for what I already practice in my life. Denying myself latest / greatest/ expensive things helps me feel grateful for what I do have, helps me live a simpler thriftier life, and forces me to evaluate how badly I really want or need what I do spend on.

Giving Up What We Take For Granted
We have so many comforts in life that at times even the simplest ones we take for granted after awhile. It talks about giving up something that brings us comfort or short term joy for a time and then reintroduce it to be able to appreciate it again.
