Episode Info: You're listening to the Stoic Philosophy Podcast - practical wisdom for everyday life. I describe an intervention tailored to elementary school students which can especially benefit a population within a school-based behavioral health program. Themes discussed in the writings of Stoic Philosophers from Ancient Greece and Rome, such as gratitude discussed in this paper, can help students better cope with everyday stressors and cultivate a psychologically healthy mindset. A vast body of literature shows a positive correlation between feelings of gratitude and human flourishing. The Stoic Philosophy Podcast explores the tradition of Stoicism with goals to inform, empower, and help others benefit from practical wisdom of Ancient Greek, Roman, and modern thinkers including Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, and Seneca. For the Stoics, a main focus is pursuing virtue to attain a well-examined life through practical applications of Philosophy – acting with good character, using reason to form accurate careful judgments about the world, and achieving contentment. Stoic writers focus on many perennial human concerns and urge people to take action applying what they learn to everyday life. Self-improvement is central to Stoic thought – strengthening and improving one’s mindset.
