If you find yourself fretting over something, stop for a minute and ask yourself, is this under my control? If it isn’t, let it go!
I’ve talked about this a number of times in the past, but, you know, it never hurts to remind ourselves of life’s little truisms that help us ease our minds and boost our mental health.
I know stoicism is in fashion at the moment with the likes of Ryan Holiday and Tim Ferris waxing lyrical about it, but that’s not why I’m talking about it. I’ve been a practitioner of stoicism for a long time. It helped me through my army days and has continued to be my grounding philosophy of life, along with existentialism.
I read a piece on High Existence that prompted me to talk about stoicism on the podcast today.
