The reputation of the stoics was that they were invulnerable, strong and that they use to suppress their emotions but if that they were so we wouldn’t have found so many references and strategies to deal with anxiety. Here are 10 of them.
Don’t focus on the goals that are in the distance, focus on the immediate step that is within our control. Do each thing that is front of you like it’s the only thing that matters or it’s the last thing that you have to do, and it all adds up - “Many mickle makes a muckle”.
Feel lucky to be alive in this moment. You have been given a gift of the present moment, don’t be cynical or jaded and waste this precious life. Everything might not be ideal but it’s the time that we are alive, and we have any control only in this moment so accept it and be grateful for it.
You don’t need to have an opinion about everything. You can accept things as they are or simply ignore it. Look at life objectively and don’t project your own thoughts and opinion on it.
Stop caring about what other people think, do or say. That is the only way to be at peace and experience tranquility.
Don’t dump your emotions or run away from it. Observe and explore them. They are like a credit card bill, you might not have to pay them now, but it will come later with a higher interest rate charged. So, deal with your emotions or process and meditate over them now and don’t leave it for later as it is going to come over with even a bigger force and magnitude.
“We suffer more in imagination than in reality” - Seneca.
All the things that we are anxious or worried about are never going to happen in reality so there is no point suffering for things that exist only in our imagination. You can only have any control over the present moment where you can prepare yourself to address any challenges that you might have. Don’t give up the present moment by being worried about what’s going to happen in the future.
Don’t want to be harmed, don’t chose to feel harmed - Epictetus
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent - Eleanor Roosevelt
Walking is a way of resting and it allows you to feel refreshed.
Only ideas had while walking have any worth - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche
Journal every single day. Don't think much about it just make a start.
The best time to start journaling was a long time ago, the second- best time is now.
Every situation can have two handles or aspects. You can choose to see it as a victim or something that dis-empowers or you can choose to it see it as an opportunity for growth.

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!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
