Checking Out a Philosophy App

Stoic philosophy is more about doing than knowing or learning how to, but practice is all about doing to learn good habits.

The stoically inclined can benefit from meditation, journaling and getting to know and stretch yourself by doing a good practice.

The goal is to change by picking up good habits and letting go of bad habits through hard work in your practice. Do no harm to yourself or others will always be foremost in your mind.

Most of the things you choose to practice will start by eliminating desires you want and focus on doing your practice and things you will do because the hard work you do will produce the outcome: inner peace, better focus, a good habit and more compassion for yourself and others.

In a sense, it prepares you to become content and in a better state of mind.

You will gain a good life with out feeling the need to say or do anything that will add to your suffering or others.

It just may prevent any poverty you may have in you life today.

You may enjoy your practice and encourage others to do the same.
