Take care of your mind

Manage carefully what enters to your mind, who you spend your time with, what comes out of your mouth, what type of content you watch, what kind of activities you do.

Say to yourself in the early morning

I shall meet today ungrateful, violent, treacherous, envious, uncharitable people. All of these things have come upon them through ignorance of real good and ill... I can neither be harmed by any of them, for no man will involve me in wrong, nor can I be angry with my kinsman or hate him.

It is my duty to keep my own faculties in a state of tranquility.

Learn to differentiate between:

• The things you can control: Opinion, pursuit, desire, aversion, and in a word, whatever are our own actions.

• The things you cannot control: Body, property, reputation, command, and in one word, whatever are not our own actions.

Arrogance, envy & admiration

Stoicism is not about being arrogant; it is not about telling everyone that you are better than them, it is not about comparing yourself to others with the goal of feeling better than them, making them less.

Stoicism is about being humble; it is about comparing yourself to others making use of admiration, with the only goal of honing our virtues of character. It is about being kind and making use of compassion to learn from others. But in order to achieve that, we must possess a strong and firm self-esteem.

Rancor is not the way

There is no point in being angry at people that do not know any better. There is no point in being angry at nature; it is what it is. Being resentful about the things that are beyond our control is pointless.

Instead, what we can do is accepting the things we cannot change and keep our own faculties in a state of tranquility.

We are responsible for our feelings

Blaming others is senseless; we must take responsibility and control of our mental state.

No one makes us feel anything, we decide how we feel; no one can hurt us, we decide to feel hurt or not.

The only person responsible for our feelings is oneself.

Strengthen your mind

Use daily stuff to strengthen your mind, see every aversion as a challenge, as an opportunity to rise and make your mind stronger.

Find a balance between

Avoiding things that trigger you, taking care of your mind and what is ingested by it; mental Peace.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
