The Robins were singing when I stepped outside. I listened attentively, first to them, and then to all of the sounds around me. My shoes touching the stones, an airplane soaring above, the wind passing by. Each sound brought me to a deeper state of calm. Listening holds the gift of peace.

Time invested: nothing extra

Cost: free

Time I feel joyful: when I give every sound I hear my full attention
