Here's what you'll get
- Introduction to Stoicism — Our first email gives you a brief introduction to Stoicism. What does it stand for? Who were the famous practitioners? Why should you study it? It concludes with this great quote from Thoreau: “To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school…it is to solve some of the problems of life not only theoretically, but practically.” If you’re concerned this might get too academic or dry, don’t worry. Thoreau’s quote should be clear about what our aim is.
- Resources on Stoicism — If you’re here it is probably because you also want to learn more and grow your understanding of this ancient philosophy. This bonus provides you exactly with that with what we consider some of the best resources out there: books, articles, essays, blogs. We got you covered.
- The Stoic Art of Journaling — In Stoicism the art of journaling is more than some simple diary. This daily practice is the philosophy. Preparing for the day ahead. Reflecting on the day that has passed. Reminding oneself of the wisdom we have learned from our teachers, from our reading, from our own experiences. This bonus will teach you the exact framework you need to put this exercise to work.
- Memento Mori: The Timeless Stoic Exercise — This powerful exercise from the Stoics is a reminder of one’s mortality. Used properly, memento mori is a tool to create priority and meaning, one that generations have used to create real perspective and urgency. To treat our time as a gift and not waste it on the trivial and vain. Death doesn’t make life pointless but rather purposeful. And fortunately, we don't have to nearly die to tap into this. This simple exercise can bring us closer to living the life we want.
- The 7 Steps Guide to Controlling Your Perceptions Like a Stoic — The obstacles that come in our way make us emotional. This guide will help you navigate adversity and failure by controlling your emotions and your perceptions of the situation. It is the first part in tackling the problem in front of us—remaining coolheaded and objective. This guide will provide you with helpful instructions to achieve that.
- Premeditatio Malorum: The Stoic Art of Negative Visualization —Premeditatio malorum (“the premeditation of evils”) is a Stoic exercise of imagining things that could go wrong or be taken away from us. It helps us prepare for life’s inevitable setbacks. We don’t always get what is rightfully ours, even if we’ve earned it. Not everything is as clean and straightforward as we think they may be. Psychologically, we must prepare ourselves for this to happen. This guide shows you how.
- Here’s How To Have Your Best Week Ever: 7 Practices From The Stoics — This excerpt from the Wall Street Journal bestseller The Daily Stoic includes some of the best Stoic passages and exercises with the idea of creating the perfect week — seven days of Stoic thinking to help you live better, more resiliently, and more peacefully.
