This is not an attempt to rate such a book, but rather a Pick for me.
Ancient stoic mindfulness, preceding and inspiring contemporary self-help and motivational literature.
There is so much common sense in this writing, I now understand why Seneca is considered one of the most accessible and easy to digest philosophers.

Some self-help pieces of advice from 2,000 years ago, still applicable today:

✔ “we are all bound by this oath: to bear the ills of mortal life, and to submit with a good grace to what we cannot avoid.“

✔ “No person has the power to have everything they want, but it is in their power not to want what they don't have, and to cheerfully put to good use what they do have.“

A concise take on Epictetus' Enchiridion, but given a modern spin bringing the philosophy of Stoicism into the 21st century. I find most of the changes the author made to the original refreshing and fitting for our age. Any philosophy should be a living, breathing, changing thing.

Taking a break from client notes to work on my final project, a book repot no less, for my certification in consensual non-monogamy! So far I am loving the book and it‘s little pearls of wisdom can be applied to monogamous relationships as well. Though it‘s giving me some very #Stoic #MarcusAurelius feels. 🤔😳

4/5💚

This book of #Stoic #philosophy takes a narrow look on how this philosophy of life can be used to become tougher, calmer, and more resilient. Not only is it a “how-to” book but it also uses personal and famous examples of overcoming set backs to illustrate points. The metaphors and examples used help the info stick in your mind, helpful in putting what you read into practice. Quick, easy & vastly useful read!

Up next! There are soooooooo many books I wanna read, but this one has been waiting for me for a few months now. Also, it‘s shorter than some of the rest so it may be a quick read. Sticking with a #Stoic theme. Gotta learn more if I want to write my own book someday. 😉

5/5💚

Finished my 1st book of the year! This one was 1 part biography of Marcus Aurelius, 1 part explanation of Stoicism as a philosophy of life, and 1 part self-help book that applies to all human beings cause we all got the feels, smart brains, and live with each other. My favorite chapter was on anger but felt like instructions on how to love your fellow man. 💚
