How Stoics find balance in their lives
Originating in ancient Greece around 300 BC, Stoicism emphasises the development of self-control and the importance of reason, rationality, and logic in understanding the world and our place in it.
American author and modern Stoic, Ryan Holiday, shares eight ways in which we might find balance in our lives through the wisdom of this philosophical school of thought...
Find the Golden Mean (Moderation)
Low lows can lead to higher highs
Enjoy this moment (The present is a gift)
Little is needed for happiness
Embrace the contradictions of life
Be present (This moment is enough)
No things in excess
Kind to others, strict with yourself
