The author of the New York Times bestselling book, Hands Free Mama, special education teacher and mother of two has struck a chord across the world by sharing her own experiences of letting go of being a distracted, perfectionist, overwhelmed parent to being a parent who slows down, connects more with her loved ones and who lives “a life that really matters”.
Rachel’s honest, often poignant posts and blogs resonate at a deep heart level and her suggestions have quite simply changed lives for the better!
I recently enjoyed chatting to her about her latest book for a special podcast, and I know her insights and practical wisdoms – some that will take just 6 seconds – will help any parent in parent-land find more harmony and joy in their homes. Please savour and linger over her latest book, Hands Free Life: 9 Habits for Overcoming Distraction, Living Better & Loving More.
And please pour yourself a cuppa and enjoy our conversation during which Rachel and I talked about living with so much technology, perfectionism, mother guilt, letting go of control and what it really takes to shift from living a hurried, chaotic stressful life to living a life of joy, meaning, presence and connection.
