STOICISM is a philosophy that propounds a way of life that is less affected by the turmoil of day-to-day events, which allows individuals to stay grounded, to be more productive and be happier. At Get Stoic, we passionately believe that sharing Stoicism is an important responsibility for those who have benefited from the philosophy. Here you will find resources, commentary, and products relating to Stoicism that will help you and your friends happier and less subject to the world they cannot control around them.
Happiness and contentment stem from living life in the present without concern for the past and future and from focusing on what we, as humans, can control.
Stoicism was founded in Athens by Zeno of Citium in the 3rd century BC and has never been more relevant. In our modern world full of social media and 24/7 news, peer pressure has us yearning for more, constantly toying with our emotions and attempting to destabilise us.
Whilst the original stoics believed one should not advertise stoicism, it was this attitude that took stoicism to the brink of extinction. The recent revival of stoicism and its introduction into the mainstream has served thousands of individuals who feel better equipped to deal with their everyday life. At Get Stoic we want to spread the word of stoicism beyond the confines of philosophy books and online forums and into the world. We believe stoicism has a hugely important role to play in education, business and wellbeing.
The products we sell afford us the privilege of spreading Stoicism and 10% of all of our post-tax profits are donated to charities supporting mental health to provide front-line help to those who need it the most.
