ARS VITAE is dedicated to examining a “thoughtful lifestyle” – “thoughtful” because our aim is to explore what it means to live well, and we focus on “lifestyle” because we believe it is important to put what we learn into practice in everyday life. It’s not enough to just think about change, we aspire to live the change. Being true to this spirit, this past spring, my editors and I embarked on an experiment. We each came up with life-changing habits that we wanted to adopt and vowed to dedicate time to incorporating them into our daily lives. These goals included meditating, walking and reading every day, including spiritual texts and Marcel Proust’s In Search of Lost Time . The experiment lasted 15 weeks, and we noted our daily progress.
