we all experience a complex range of emotions every single day. whether we are feeling positive or negative — both of which are completely natural, of course — it is essential that we have a clear understanding of our emotional state of mind if we are to achieve self-actualization.

stoicism is a philosophy of leaders, as Tim Ferriss put it:
• become happier and more productive
• become less emotionally reactive
• become a better, kinder person
• become better at resolving conflicts

Wow, life-changing! This app has so much potential — a bright future.

I’m blown away by the beautiful functionality and style of this app. In a time of self-coddling exceptionalism, I find the truthful and minimalist way of Stoicism to be an oasis to during this age of narcissism. I want to develop my character by persisting in doing the simple everyday things that are hard for me; and to treat the people in my life better, by being more thoughtful and reflective of all the ways I impact people in my life. The questions asked in this journaling app helps me to do exactly that, and I really appreciate it. The responsiveness of the developer shows a kind of rare caring, which will surely inspire a community around this app. The messaging feature promises interesting ways to incorporate philosophy, natural language processing and ML. It is a beautifully modern way to deliver lessons in classical philosophy in more pragmatic and interactive, bite-sized chunks — with the potential for location-awareness and habit tracking for really grounding philosophy into lived experience. As an educator with a philosophy background, a software developer and product manager, I am so excited for this app - and I can’t wait to see what it turns into over the next year. I hope that I can be involved in some way as a volunteer and enthusiast.

SpiritKaizen, I wish I could reply to your review in the same beautiful way that You complemented Stoic. Unfortunately, I’m not skilled enough :)
Nevertheless, I really deeply appreciate your support, and kind words, and I will do my best to meet your expectations.

I would be honored if you could guide me with your advice on future features, If you wish to have access to beta builds, please ping me at

Have a great day,

A non judgmental guide to a better self

This app just keeps getting better and better. While using stoicism as a framework, this app has really been a way for me to practice personal reflection and awareness, cultivating better emotional wellness. Easily accessible techniques for gratitude, journaling, meditation, and breathing exercises without the pressure of any one thing being a requirement. The app guides you to those tools through a pleasant sequence without any pressure to use specific techniques. It’s so gentle. If you want to journal, then journal. If you want to meditate, then do that. And if you don’t, that’s ok too. It’s totally up to you. I find tremendous value in the simple act of making these sequences a part of my daily morning and evening routine; from simply opening the app and assessing how I feel to what my priority for the day is to how productive I felt. The app now even guides personal reflection towards specific categories. If in the morning I say I’m going to focus on reading, in the evening the app will then guide me to reflect on recalling what I read that day. So simple, but so helpful. Excellent user experience, an essential part of my every day routine now.

Try This App

As a philosophy student and a productivity nerd, I’ve probably tried somewhere over 20 different journaling apps over the years and nothing has ever felt complete enough to make it worth the time. Within my first sit down with this app however, I actually found myself crying in some moments and smiling at others, ultimately feeling like I had done something truly productive. This app is incredibly in-depth and really delivers a guided experience that is tailored for your personal goals. It is structured enough to feel like you know what to do in order to benefit from it, and it is open-ended enough to feel like you don’t need any other app to accompany it, which makes it feel very complete and satisfying to have everything in one place. The customizable options, philosophical quotes and questions, and the array of mental exercises to choose from make this app an excellent tool to heal and grow. I have no doubt that this will continue to be a valued part of my daily routine, and I urge anyone reading this to try this for yourself!
