Tranquility du jour tous les jours

I've been in love with this podcast ever since I discovered it. I have a minimum one-hour commute to and from school/work four to five days each week and was searching for a podcast to listen to to pass the time, and this is the first that drew me in. Kimberly covers wonderful topics in her interviews with wonderful people, and I feel like you really come to know about her and the things she's passionate about, and why, like animal welfare, yoga, and tranquility in everyday life, which I think we could all use a lot more of. Thank you, Kimberly, for shining your light in this world. Already looking forward to the next episode. 💕

2022 UPDATE: It’s been about five years since I discovered TDJ and while, in the spirit of honesty, I have not been a diligent follower all that time, I’ve recently returned to Kimberly Wilson’s world and discovered how much I missed being a part of it. This is the only podcast I ever listen to and it will forever be my favorite. It offers wonderful resources on a range of topics including mindfulness, creativity, creating space for yourself and for what’s important to you, and just like she says at the beginning of each episode, living a full and meaningful life. I’ve learned that listening to Tranquility du Jour and subscribing to her Love Notes newsletter absolutely makes my life fuller and more meaningful. Love.

A Few Moments of Calm and Tranquility!

I enjoy Ms Wilson’s beautiful podcast. It is a few moments of calm and tranquility in my day/week. Her podcast on her California trip in 2021 was one of my favorites. I decided to do a trip up the Northern California coast last summer based on her recommendations with my family and we had one of the best trips of our lives so far! Her podcast stays true to her vision with each episode! ~ Merci boucoup!

Perfect for anyone!

No matter the subject, you’re guaranteed to gain something from every episode - can’t recommend Tranquility du Jour enough. 🙌
