“Rachel Macy Stafford's post "The Day I Stopped Saying Hurry Up" was a true phenomenon on The Huffington Post, igniting
countless conversations online and off about freeing ourselves from the vicious cycle of keeping up with
our overstuffed agendas. Hands Free Mama has the power to keep that conversation going and remind us that we must not
let our lives pass us by.”
--Arianna Huffington, Chair, President, and Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, nationally syndicated
columnist, and author of thirteen books
DISCOVER THE POWER, JOY, AND LOVE of Living “Hands Free”
If technology is the new addiction, then multi-tasking is the new marching order. We check our email while cooking
dinner, send a text while bathing the kids, and spend more time looking into electronic screens than into the eyes of
our loved ones. With our never-ending to-do lists and jam-packed schedules, it’s no wonder we’re distracted.
But this isn’t the way it has to be.
In July 2010, special education teacher and mother Rachel Macy Stafford decided enough was enough. Tired of losing track
of what matters most in life, Rachel began practicing simple strategies that enabled her to momentarily let go of
largely meaningless distractions and engage in meaningful soul-to-soul connections. She started a blog to chronicle her
endeavors and soon saw how both external and internal distractions had been sabotaging her happiness and preventing her
from bonding with the people she loves most.
Hands Free Mama is the digital society’s answer to finding balance in a media-saturated, perfection-obsessed world. It
doesn’t mean giving up all technology forever. It doesn’t mean forgoing our jobs and responsibilities. What it does mean
is seizing the little moments that life offers us to engage in real and meaningful interaction. It means looking our
loved ones in the eye and giving them the gift of our undivided attention, leaving the laundry till later to dance with
our kids in the rain, and living a present, authentic, and intentional life despite a world full of distractions.
So join Rachel and go hands-free. Discover what happens when you choose to open your heart―and your hands―to the
possibilities of each God-given moment.
