Memento Mori Life Calendar (Framed)
Visualize your life in weeks & unlock your true potential
Your life is made up of 4160 weeks, and this tool will help you make the most of them.
Fill in a new square with each passing week, and you'll quickly experience improved focus, a heightened perspective on life, and a rush of motivation to take consistent action.
Latin for 'Remember your death', Memento Mori is a powerful concept that's been used for centuries to help people focus on what truly matters.
The calendar was designed as an interactive tool to help you harness the concept by visualizing your life week by week.
From Seneca to Steve Jobs, Leo Tolstoy to Charles Darwin, high achieving individuals use a hyperawareness of their mortality to accomplish more and live better.
Stuck in a rut?
Held back by the fear of failure?
Being aware of your mortality may sound scary, but it’s an extremely effective catalyst for reflection and change. It puts all the things that don’t matter into perspective, melts away fears, and clears a path for you to focus on what's truly important.
The weekly ritual of filling in a new square will jolt you into the present moment, provide you with an improved perspective on life, and give you the motivation and drive to take action week after week.
Using the calendar for a few months has been a life-changing experience for me. I'm looking forward to hearing your story of how it's improved your life too!

I absolutely love my calendar. I put it above my desk so I’m forced to see it everyday lol it really has made me more aware of what I’m putting my time into, what I actually value, and just how much time I realistically have. I color my square in every Sunday and reflect on that week. How much of it was wasted? If I had to relive that week would I want too? A lot of realizations come up randomly - it came at the perfect time. I have a few goals to meet by 30 and I can’t afford to waste any moment of my life. Aside from all the mental spiritual pluses, I love the aesthetic of it too.
I have recently become interested in Stoicism and all that it has to teach. In my search for resources I came across Stoic Reflections and the Memento Mori calendar Alex has created. It has become something I use on a daily basis to remind me to not sacrifice the gift. Become a better version of yourself and get one. It will change your perspective on what you can accomplish on a day to day basis!
Top quality and absolutely love it!!
What better gift than the gift of perspective on the amount of life one MIGHT have left.
I ordered one for my husband, children, myself, my parents, my brother, his wife, and their children. I’m going to wrap them just like the gifts were wrapped in The Family Stone (if you’ve seen it) and gift them for everyone to open at the same time on Xmas...just like in the movie.

This will for sure give me a reminder every week to make the most of life. High quality frame, minimalist style. One suggestion would be to either not include the clear acrylic lens or put it in the back of the frame. Since I need to fill in a square every week I’m not going to remove the lens every week to do so. Then It seems like the metal tabs on the back that hold the sheet in are only meant to be bent once or twice. A couple of them broke as I tried to take out the lens, so it’d be nice if this was done from the get go.
I received this item and it’s exactly as advertised that’s high quality. I also had a couple of questions and the customer service was excellent.
