My apologies for the late upload this morning! This will be addressed in the episode itself.

I know that people tend to listen to these recordings in a variety of situations and while doing a variety of things, but I have four rec…
 
“One of the things you figure out quickly with kids, and as we’ve talked about a bunch over on our Daily Dad email and podcast, is that there is always a reason they’re behaving a certain way. Your kid is acting crazy because they’re tired. They’re having a meltdown because actually they’re starting to get sick. Bedtime isn’t happening because napt…
 
Synopsis: In past episodes I’ve voiced my own critiques of Epictetus’s brand of Stoicism. Specifically, I’ve indicted him for advocating heartlessness, inhumanity, and sociopathy. I recently came across a defense of Epictetus against such charges. While it’s too early to tell whether this defense addresses all of my problems, I am certain that the …

We live once and therefore live one lifetime. You can try and extend your life through healthy lifestyle choices.

“Nobody wants to get sick. We don’t want food poisoning. We don’t want the flu. We don’t want COVID-19. This is why we protect our immune system, wash our hands, take care of ourselves. Good. Health is important. But what about, as the great Phoebe Bridgers put it, emotional motion sickness?” Ryan explains why you should build up your emotional res…
 
Synopsis: I chose this excerpt for two reasons: (1) Marcus Aurelius’s statements about the value of honesty, integrity, and lack of pretense complement the statements of the Rambam in Hilchos Deios on the same topic, which we recently covered in my Rambam Bekius shiur; (2) I love the analogy of the smelly goat!

“The Stoics weren’t robots. It wasn’t that they stuffed things down, or that they didn’t feel anything. How could that have been true? They were husbands and fathers, wives and daughters. They wrote beautiful works of art. They took principled stands. They told jokes. They worked hard and they sacrificed.” Ryan explains what you should replace ange…
 
Synopsis: Today’s musings were sparked by my recommendation of the Charlie Kaufman movie Synecdoche, New York, and my decision not to rewatch it because it’s too depressing. In today’s episode we discuss four perspectives on tragedies – three from the thinkers listed in the title, and the fourth from Judaism itself. Sources: - Aurelius, Meditations…

“Have you ever noticed that we often refer to Marcus Aurelius just as Marcus? You likely read those references without breaking stride. Because you, like us, feel connected to Marcus.

Our school delineates steps and tools to attain peace of mind. OK. Can we just follow the steps then to attain peace of mind within the day?

We cannot be perfect or…
