The founders of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy were influenced by the words of Epictetus, a former slave who became a philosophy professor on the streets of Rome more than 2000 years ago. Sam and Ali explain the five principles of Stoicism: (1) The dichotomy of control teaches you how to focus on the aspects of a situation under your control. (2) Meditating before adversity hardens our minds against potential future adversity. (3) Voluntary discomfort takes this to a physical level and protects us against the danger of excessive comfort. (4) The view from above gives us perspective, something that is much needed in our modern days. (5) Finally, journaling gives us the tools to effectively reflect on all of the above. We then move on to five practical applications of the tools you learned in Phase I. We cover practical applications such as dealing with anger, how to handle criticism, and how to have healthy relationships among others. Throughout the course, Sam and Ali share the ways Stoicism has been directly applied to their lives. This masterclass provides concrete examples that you can take and apply today. About Us My name is Ali, I'm a doctor working in the UK and I also make YouTube videos about medicine, technology and productivity. Productivity is probably the topic I get asked about the most on my YouTube channel and social media. Through reading books, blog posts, articles and experimenting with numerous techniques over the years, I feel like I have developed quite a bit of knowledge about productivity and that is why I have decided to put together this extensive series of productivity classes. Skillshare to share my own knowledge in the productivity space and hopefully help us all work towards living happier, healthier and more productive lives. Hello, I'm Sam Ahmed, the Stoic Professor. I am a graduate of Philosophy and Theology from the University of Cambridge, and now have the pleasure of teaching Philosophy and Religious Studies in South London. I discovered Stoicism in 2017 when I was deeply unhappy and morbidly obese, weighing over 322 pounds. Applying Stoicism to my daily life has allowed me to lose over 140 pounds since then. I now spread the philosophy of Stoicism through my Instagram, Facebook and YouTube accounts @TheStoicTeacher in hopes of helping others change their lives too.
