What is the Tranquility du Jour Daybook?

My vision for this dateless planner was to serve as a catch-all for dreams, days’ events, and deepest thoughts. A chance to pause and find pockets of tranquility within the busyness of daily life. Chock-full of tips, tools, and checklists, inside you’ll find four seasonal layouts, 12 monthly layouts and 60 weekly layouts, invitations to pause, lists to complete, plant-based recipes, journal prompts, yoga and meditation how-tos, and more. Personalize it with ephemera, colored markers, washi tape, and your heart’s longings.

kimberly_portrait_2015-15-XLWebster’s Dictionary defines tranquility as the quality or state of being tranquil. Tranquil is then defined as free from agitation of mind or spirit. I define tranquility as “the quality of calm within a full and meaningful life.”

To me, full means active by using my time and energy on what brings me alive, while meaningful means I’m contributing to the bigger picture and making a difference in some small way. Yes, self-care is important to find tranquility and so is getting out there and using our voices.

The word tranquility is woven throughout my work dating back to 1999 with my yoga studio, Tranquil Space. Tranquility is easier to find meditating on a mountaintop or while on vacation, but what about when the dog is barking, kid is crying, or deadline is looming?

That’s where it gets juicy. Together let’s explore the calm among the chaos that contributes to a full and meaningful life.

I find the line to be blurry between work and play. During down time you’ll find me reading non-fiction books, practicing yoga, or thumbing through creativity magazines—all of which are applicable to my professional life and fuel my passion.

During work I’m sipping tea, sitting with clients, and blogging about what’s most on my mind. My work and play commingle in a coherent, holistic way. Also, I’m a sucker for self-care: regular massage, lots of sleep, yoga, and journal writing.

Here are some other ways to find tranquility

If you want feedback catered directly to your situation, consider a coaching session. I work with a few select clients per year. Due to time constraints, I am unable to meet for tea or chat via email regarding business or non-profit ventures beyond these offerings.

In 2006 I recorded a podcast that outlines my experience from concept to publication. Listen to it here and learn all my tips and tricks. In addition, on pp. 26-27 of Tranquilista I share a timeline of my writing journey. Good luck!
