Prince Philip: A Husband But Never A King

Prince Philip was never in line for the throne (his eldest son stands to inherit it) and never held the title of king.

The reason for that: in the British monarchy, a woman who marries the monarch can use the ceremonial title of queen - but men who marry the monarch can't use the title king, which can only be used by male sovereigns.

Epicureanism vs. Stoicism

Epicureanism is the philosophy that is based from the teachings of Greek philosopher Epicurus. It denotes that pleasure is the only good there is in life. Alongside it, it mentions that the absence of pain and that living a simple life are the greatest pleasures in life.

Stoicism is a philosophy that maximizes positive feelings, reduces the negatives, and allows the individual to find their purpose to live a virtuous life.

This is what ancient Greece can teach us about the trials and tribulations of modern life

Enjoying scary movies

Research has found that willing exposure to that which scares us can provide a counterbalance to life's stresses:

  • It may be an effective way to undermine anxiety and even bolster our resilience.
  • It is intentionally triggering our fight-or-flight response in an environment where we control the variables.
  • Manageable bouts of "good stress" can generate an immune response that strengthens the immune system against bigger threats.
  • The scary movies offer social-bonding benefits when we talk about the movie afterwards to our friends.

Disruption of Progress

Whenever an outside force interrupts our progress - we skip gym for a day or two for example - it sends a message to our brains that we aren't good enough and we can't do it and that we should just give up.

Disruption is the biggest obstacle to overcome but we can always change this habit if we look at it with fresh eyes. Instead of seeing it as a negative event, look at is as a fresh start, like it's something we've never seen before. It would help open our minds to the curiosity and possibilities.
