Cognitive psychotherapist, author of How to Think Like a Roman Emperor (2019), featured in Forge, The Guardian.


Hi everyone,

I just wanted to give a shout out for a brand new Medium article called How the Stoic Mindset is the Key to Success in Life by a new contributor to our publication, Arlie Peyton.

The subtitle says it all: “Stoic Wisdom For Surviving And Thriving In Good Or Bad Times” — we’re in some pretty rough times right now obviously with the pandemic!

There are thousands of resources, but I’ve decided to list my top picks for each category.

Arlie lists his favourite concepts and strategies from Stoicism, as well as his four favourite books, and other resources for people who want to learn about the subject.

Please let us know what you think in the comments. Hope you enjoy!
