Idea from Stoicism about intentionally putting oneself in uncomfortable conditions for a certain amount of time.

Twofold gains:

  • You stop fearing hypothetical futures because you experienced them and know you can bear them
    • Most fear is fear of the unknown, but once you experience it is not unknown anymore
    • You learn that you can adapt to pretty much anything
  • You appreciate more what you normally have
