Description

'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 bookshttp://www.huffingtonpost.com/ 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.
