Stoicism 101: An Introductory Guide to Daily Stoic Practices, Journaling, and Gratitude

Hey there, welcome to a simple guide that could change the way you see your life. If you’ve ever felt that life can be too much, or if you’re simply curious about Stoicism, you're in the right place. This guide will show you how you can make daily Stoic practices, journaling, and gratitude a part of your life.

What is Stoicism?

Long ago, a philosopher named Zeno started Stoicism in Athens. This ancient philosophy tells us that the key to a happy life is to know ourselves and manage our feelings.

Building Blocks of Daily Stoic Practice

To understand Stoicism, think about it like a three-legged stool:

- Wisdom: Understand what you can change and what you can’t.

- Courage: Face life’s challenges bravely.

- Justice: Treat everyone right.

Why Journaling and Gratitude?

Stoicism is more than just theory. It's about living better. Journaling and gratitude are two powerful ways to do that:

- Self-Awareness: Writing daily can help you understand yourself.

- Reflection: A journal helps you think about your day and your choices.

- Gratitude: Being thankful can make you happier and less stressed.

How to Do It: Wisdom, Courage, Justice


Write down what bothered you today. Can you change it? If not, can you change how you feel about it? Also, list three good things that happened today.


Jot down moments when you were brave. Maybe you spoke up at work. Maybe you said no to something you didn’t want to do. Be grateful for those chances to be brave.


At the end of the day, think about how you’ve treated people. Did you do the right thing? Thank the people who were good to you today.

What’s the Payoff?

If you start doing these daily Stoic practices along with journaling and gratitude, you’ll likely notice:

- You think more clearly.

- You’re less worried.

- Your friendships get better.

- You make smarter choices.

Stick with It

Keeping a daily practice isn’t always easy. Here are some tips:

- Keep it simple. You don’t need to write a novel.

- Make it part of your day. A regular habit is easier to keep.

- Talk to other people who are interested in Stoicism or self-improvement.


Living a better life can be as simple as taking a few minutes each day to think and be thankful. We hope this guide helps you get started with daily Stoic practices, journaling, and gratitude. Ready to make your life better?
