“Hands Free” Parenting with Rachel Macy Stafford: The Home Hour Episode 17

 hands free mama

Have you ever thought about what it might be like to live “hands free” – setting aside some of the digital distractions and outwardly-imposed priorities to focus on what really matters? Today’s podcast guest, Rachel Macy Stafford, decided to do just that when she felt that her rushed life as a “go-to” volunteer mom with a packed social circle just didn’t match up with the kind of life she wanted to be experiencing with her two young daughters.

I absolutely loved talking with Rachel – she’s warm, compassionate, and full of insights about how to let go of the endless pressure to achieve something “out there,” and turn some of that attention toward the people and experiences right in front of you – those that really matter.

In our interview, Rachel and I talk about using technology without letting it take over your life, how to carefully choose opportunities that really support your values, and her brand-new book Hands Free Mama: A Guide to Putting Down The Phone, Burning The To-Do List, and Letting Go of Perfection to Grasp What Really Matters!

A few of the links Rachel and I discussed:

In addition to reading her book, you can join Rachel on her journey to let go of distraction, perfection, and societal pressure to grasp what really matters by visiting www.handsfreemama.com or “The Hands Free Revolution” on Facebook.
