10 Ways Stoicism Can Change Your Mindset And Upgrade Your Life.

1) Live in the present moment

Don't worry about the future or dwell on the past. The present moment is all that matters. No need to worry about what could happen or what has already happened.

2) Accept what is out of your control

Biggest stoic principle. You can't control everything so learn to accept what is out of your control. Don't sweat the small stuff and don't try to control the uncontrollable.

3) Be mindful of your actions and their consequences

Be aware of your actions and how they will affect you and others. Take responsibility for your own actions.

4) Maintain a healthy detachment from the things you desire

Don't be too attached to things, people, or outcomes. Be willing to let go if necessary. If you get too attached, you'll only be disappointed if things don't go your way.

5) Do not fear death or pain

You're dying with every passing moment, so there's no need to fear death. Death is inevitable and pain is temporary. Don't let the fear of either hold you back from living your life.

6) Pursue wisdom and understanding

Seek out knowledge and understanding. The more you know, the better equipped you'll be to deal with whatever life throws your way.

7) Live with moderation and simplicity

Don't overindulge or complicate your life. Live a simple and moderate lifestyle, so you're not constantly chasing after material things.

8) Be just and fair in your dealings with others

Treat others fairly and justly. Don't take advantage of people or manipulate them. Stoics believed in treating others the way you would want to be treated.

9) Cultivate self-discipline and fortitude

Develop strength of character. Train your mind and body to withstand adversity. Be disciplined in your thoughts and actions.

10) Overcome negative emotions with reason and logic

Use reason and logic to overcome negative emotions. Don't let your emotions control you. Instead, control your emotions.
