The Stoics believe you should start the day with a meditation of what’s to come and then you should end the day reflecting on what has happened and what can be improved.
Stoicism became popular in the Roman Empire. Slaves like Epictetus, rich people like Seneca or emperors like Marcus Aurelius found guidance for life in it.
