Tools for Emotional Resilience and More.
Stoicism has been around since the 3rd century BCE and my next guest, Matt Van Natta, has been studying Stoic philosophy for almost that long. In case you missed it the first time around, some famous stoics of the distant past include Marcus Aurelius (a roman emperor), Epictetus, Seneca the Younger, and who could forget Zeno of Citium?
Matt is the creator of the podcast Good Fortune and the blog Immoderate Stoic. His podcasts and writings focus on how to apply stoicism in the modern world. He writes books, drinks coffee, beer, and whiskey, and contemplates the human condition.
In this episode we talk about stoicism in the modern world and his new book – The Beginners Guide to Stoicism: Tools for Emotional Resilience and Positivity. It's available on Amazon.com. The stoics managed life pretty well and this book describes lots of great life navigation tools you can use right now.
