Daily doses of practical, uplifting philosophy from the bestselling author of The Obstacle is the Way
Where can you find joy? What's the true measure of success? How should we manage anger? Find meaning? Conquer grief? The answers to these questions and more lie at the heart of Stoic philosophy.
The Daily Stoic is a wise, calming, page-a-day guide to living a good life, offering inspirational daily doses of classic wisdom. Each page features a powerful quotation from the likes of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the playwright Seneca, or philosopher Epictetus, as well as historical anecdotes and thought-provoking commentary to help you tackle any problem, approach any goal and find the serenity, self-knowledge and resilience you need to live well.
I loved this book. I’ve started reading about stoicism the last few years and try and incorporate it into my life.
This book helps in understanding what this means relating to every day.
Ryan Holiday has changed me....
I’m so many ways. I’ll be forever grateful to this man for opening my eyes. It’s not easy but so with it.
Part of my daily morning routine
Each day of the year receives one page with a message for reflection and contemplation - and the opportunity to start one’s day in a calm and mindful manner.
Pages lead with a passage or quote by mostly well-known ancient stoics, followed up and adapted to modern life by Ryan Holliday’s commentary and modern day examples - hence made practical.
The daily practice of reading these one-pagers also puts one in the right mindset to begin one’s day. It fosters mindfulness, clarity and calmness of mind.
