Episode 101: Stoic Aging--Embracing Wisdom and Resilience in the Third Age

Aging Well Podcast

Sep 10 2023 • 17 mins

Stoicism is a philosophical school of thought that originated in ancient Greece around the 3rd century BCE. It can offer a practical framework for living a virtuous and fulfilling life by emphasizing personal ethics, self-control, resilience, and acceptance of the natural order of things. At its core, stoicism teaches individuals to attain happiness and inner peace by focusing on what they can control while accepting what they cannot. It encourages the cultivation of virtues such as wisdom, courage, justice, and temperance to guide their actions and responses to life's challenges.

In this solo episode, Dr. Armstrong considers the philosophy of stoicism and its profound implications for successful aging, particularly during the post-retirement years. He shares the wisdom and resilience that stoicism offers to help us navigate the challenges and joys of growing older—as we seek to… age well.
