Tranquilologie is the study of living tranquility with joie de vivre.
This do-it-yourself field guide takes you from January through December with doses of inspiration covering eight topics–mindfulness, self-care, nesting, do-gooding, work, style, creativity, dreams–in a new way each month.
Learn to create homemade gifts, get grounded in an instant, practice yoga, accessorize, craft your bucket list, start a women’s group, art journal, clear clutter, shop mindfully, and more.
Tranquilologie involves being mindful in the moment, relishing simple pleasures, exploring minimalism, getting crafty, and creating extraordinary everyday experiences.
Inside each month’s feature you’ll find eight insightful essays including how-tos, “Savvy Sources” to inspire further exploration, signature “OMwork” to tie a bow around the month’s journey, inspiring quotes peppered throughout, and checklists to help you stay on the tranquility track.
To enhance your visual journey, artist Mary Catherine Starr sprinkles each of the 96 essays with whimsical watercolors.Tranquilologie is about living with exuberance, passion, and tranquility–every day of the year.
Place this book on your bedside table next to a scented candle and cuppa tea (or flute of bubbly). Use it in collaboration with your personalized Tranquility du Jour Daybook to truly live tranquility each and every day. Read each chapter as the month begins or pick it up as the need for inspiration hits anywhere in between, ideally with jazz serenading in the background.
