The 1# best seller in Greek-Roman philosophy, one of the best rated books with over 3.000 ratings and an average of 4.8 on Amazon, The Daily Stoic is truly a gem. It's a book about philosophy, awareness, meditation, thought.
A page a day of Stoic wisdom is the premise of this book. Stoics view life as unpredictable and difficult, but try to teach themselves how to make the most of it and keep control of your mind and emotions, taking action instead of endlessly wasting time. The book is not preachy, but practical.
If you're now to Stoicism, great. If you're already a Stoic, good again. This book is a thought, meditation a day, ancient wisdom combined with modern times. It pushes you to question your actions, revise your day, work on yourself, do more and do better. Taking 5 minutes a day, every day, may actually change the way you think.
One page at a time for a year for a better, calmer, more focused life. Stoicism isn't for anyone, but the ideas of living calmer or stress-free, that's definitely worth it.
