Monday marks the beginning of Stoic Week. It is an opportunity to be part of an international scientific experiment to see if the ancient philosophy of Stoicism can have positive benefits for your life and make you happier. To get involved, please visit the Stoic Week webpage here. Once you have filled out their questionnaire, you’ll need to download the handbook. I’ll be taking part and will hopefully document my experiences on here, but I encourage everyone to try it too.
Stoicism is an ancient Greek pantheistic philosophy which emphasises living in harmony with nature, understanding what is and isn’t within our control and living a mindful, virtuous life. You can read an article I wrote on it here.
