    For me it is late afternoon and early evening. Any pressures, concerns or challenges of the day have come and gone, for the most part. That is my time of letting go, going for a walk, being by the water, soaking in water, reading, connecting with a family member or friend or… just being with the moment, life, savouring, being with and appreciating what is, letting go …

    hmmm, I live on the shore of beautiful Lake Atitlan. All I have to do is walk out my front door and sit on the porch to soak up beauty and peace. And yet, more often, I’m inside at the table, scrolling or at best visiting this site. All of your beautiful reflections acted as a wake up for me just now. I closed the laptop. Took off my glasses. Brought my tea out to the porch and just sat. I saw birds and butterflies and watched the leaves bob and dance in a gentle wind. I heard an occasional wind chime with bird song – and even a boat or a jet ski go by. I did nothing — no book, no sudoku, no kindle, no mental list making. It was truly divine. And right here for me. Thank you all for the reminder. Sending love and gentle breezes out to you all.

    At two in the morning, no one comes into my room, no one bothers me. I’m simply here with my thoughts and anything I feel like doing. It’s private, it’s quiet, it’s nice. It’s late and I’m tired of course, but I stay awake as long as I can because it’s time to myself

    My mid to late afternoon pause with a cup of tea or a glass of wine. A marker shifting the rhythm from something to something else.

    the still quietness of the morning, beckoning, peace be with you

    listen closer and then listen again, the still still quiet of the earth slowly awakens

    that little bit of spirit comes alive, grateful for another day

    Before everyone else wakes up, like 330-4am is my favorite time of day. I like running super early before everyone wakes up.

    Really,
    any time of day can be peaceful for me . . .
    any moment might be a peaceful moment.
    I find peaceful moments all over
    throughout my day
    and into the night . . .

    That’s an easy question. Early mornings are the time when I can reflect and gather my thoughts. It feels like a fresh start, like only good things are happening at that hour. I lost this for a long time and I avoided mornings. Replaced it with watching the “news”. What a terrible idea.

    The time of day that is most peaceful for me is early morning, the time I arise. It is quiet, the sun has just risen, the birds are singing. The quiet makes it conducive for my prayer & meditation time. I also feel closest to higher realms & Source in the early morning.
    Happy Saturday All.❤️🙏✨

    My morning routine is peaceful. Before any news or social media or to-do lists, I read poetry on sites I visit every morning, then come here. Our cat often curls up on my outstretched legs on the sofa, I sip hot coffee my husband brings me, I listen to the birds outside during the seasons when it’s not too cold to have the window open and feel the cool air coming in.
    The second time of day is in the early evening in the summer, when my husband and I sit outside on our little patio reading and sipping something, occasionally reading a funny or thought-provoking line out loud to share. I stop to look up at the sky every so often and look into the trees. Our back yard is enclosed by fences and tall plants and it feels like a special, private space, even with neighbors on all sides of us.

    Mornings. I feed the cats, take my meds and then start my meditation practice. When my meditation ends the cats are ready for a cuddle. In winter I have a nice warm tea and then my day starts and I hope that it will be mostly peaceful…or that I will be mostly peaceful regardless of how the day turns out to be.

    yes when I wake up and then later in the day, or anytime I sit with my breath, or listen to the birds or… now that I’m exploring this further…there are many opportunities. Great question

    The most peaceful time of day for me is about a half hour or hour after I wake. When I first wake I always have things to do and I am shaking off sleep, but usually after I feed the cat, put in laundry and such, I have some quiet time before others are up. 😊

    First thing in the morning. I love the stillness of morning, hearing the birds welcome the day, sun rising, and my routine that sets me up for the day ahead.
