Sundays in bed with … The Daily Stoic

This blog tag was originally hosted byย Midnight Book Girlย and it aims to share how youโ€™re spending your Sunday readingย ๐Ÿค“

This Sunday I am waking up to read The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday & Stephen Hanselman ๐Ÿง 

Now I am new to these stoicism theories, texts and concepts. I’ve been mostly introduced to them by someone close in my life and The Daily Stoic is my first taster.

For me, I am really seeking this book out as something to read each morning, as it sets a precedent for each day of the year. For example, todays message is:

HOW TO HAVE A GOOD DAY: Here is how you guarantee to have a good day: do good things. Any other source of joy is outside of your control or is nonrenewable. But this one is all you, all the time, and unending. It is the ultimate form of self-reliance.

I don’t know about you but I really needed to hear this today. Somehow each passage daily, as humans, we can find some way of applying and resonating this with our lives and current lifestyle. I highly recommend giving this a try and maybe even keep a journal to write down your minds initial thoughts and feelings about each daily passage.

๐ŸŽง ‘Folklore’ by Taylor Swift – currently obsessed with this album, I think it is connected to the winter weather rolling in ๐ŸŒง
