Do you have any good resources you can point me to for this? (Stoicism and Trichotomy of Control) or even books too!

If you want an overview of many of tools of the Stoic philosophers, I'd start with goodreads.com/book/show/5617966-a-... . It covers the ToC as well.

If you fancy diving deeper into Stoicism, I'd checkout the source material starting with:

  • Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
  • Discourses by Epictetus

Stoicism isn't providing (just) a framework to deal with anxiety and stress but also with general misfortune in life. It provides a way to gradually build your resilience and perspective of the world so you endure during the "bad sagas" as I like to call them.

Happy reading!

Yes! I'd also suggest The Daily Stoic podcast for a succinct, daily dose of Stoic philosophy. Occasional long-form interviews, like a recent with Guy Raz.
