How to Actually Live a Better Life

"A Guide to the Good Life" by Braxton Irvine

How to Live a Better Life through Stoicism

Today I’m going to teach you a lesson from a book called “A Guide to the
Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy” by William Braxton Irvine. A book about, you guessed it, Stoicism, and ancient philosophy.

In this book, Irvine offers a refreshing presentation of Stoicism, showing how
this ancient philosophy can still direct us toward a better life.

I’m only going to share one lesson from this book, a lesson on how to
get through the grocery store checkout line much faster, just kidding,
but one very valuable lesson which will show you how the teachings of
Stoicism can help us be little more grounded in today’s crazy world.
