    Great guidance, just when I needed it. You make it so simple, accessible and gentle. Thank you for sharing this today. :)

  2. I love these suggestions Courtney! I really like the music idea because the news always has a way of putting a damper on my evening. It’s amazing how making a few simple changes can really alter the clutter and chaos that so many of us think is “normal.”

  3. Nice…gentile…Music is on, getting a box…Perfect for the day…Thanks!

  4. Lovely! I love the emphasis on the spirit of lightness. I was just noticing last night what a difference proper lighting makes.

  5. Great, easily digestible list. I have always noticed music make me more productive. It doesn’t matter if I listen while working out, writing or cleaning. It helps my brain rest as I take care of the tasks at hand.

  6. I love this, Courtney. Light truly does have so many beautiful meanings! ;-)

  7. Love the way you are able to capture the essence of what we can do to create more peace in our lives. Inspiring!

    A wonderful, practical, do-able list. Thank you!

  9. Trading the Evening News for soft music sounds just perfect!

    I already have phone-free times and zones, and I already walk daily. I’m sure it makes my life better.

    Very nice post! :-)

  10. A timely post for me Courtney! Feeling the weight of sick kiddies and sleep deprivation this week, I took up your suggestion of a little walk yesterday. It turns out it was just what my daughter and I needed in that moment and I know I wouldn’t have thought to do it, if I hadn’t read it here. Thank you.

  11. I really love the idea of the passeggiata, I’ve seen and taken part in this once when I was in Italy, and it is such a calm yet gently vibrant time of the day when everyone comes out to enjoy their town and the faces of all the people in their community.

    Thanks for these great nuggets of inspiration.
