»Dafür haben wir jetzt keine Zeit«, war lange der Satz, den die Töchter von Rachel Macy Stafford am häufigsten von ihrer Mutter hörten. Die junge Frau verlor sich geradezu in ihrem hektischen Alltag, während sie versuchte, allen Ansprüchen gerecht zu werden. Bis es schließlich nicht mehr weiterging.Nicht für sie, nicht für ihren Partner und vor allem nicht für ihre Kinder. Rachel Macy Stafford zog daraufhin die Reißleine und beschloss, ihr Leben zu ändern. Sie entwickelte ein Programm für mehr Achtsamkeit und Gelassenheit und lernte so auch selbst, endlich wieder bewusst Zeit mit ihrer Familie zu verbringen.

“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 http://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.

Ihre Tochter trödelt jeden Morgenherum und Ihnen platzt mal wieder der Kragen? Kennen Sie das? So ging es auch der vierfachen Mutter und Bloggerin Sheila McCraith. Sie brüllte ihre Kinder wie so oft furchtbar an, doch diesmal hörte der Handwerker, der gerade im Haus war, mit... Sheila schämte sich entsetzlich, denn sie liebt ihre Kinder doch von Herzen. Und dann beschloss sie, nie wieder zu schreien. Die Orange-Rhino-Challenge entstand... Was Sheila schaffte, das schaffen Sie auch, in 30 Tagen: - Finden Sie heraus, was in Ihnen das aggressive Graue Rhino weckt, das sofort zum Angriff übergeht, wenn es gereizt wird. - Lernen Sie, mit Ihren individuellen Triggern umzugehen, statt gleich loszuschreien. - Bleiben Sie dran und werden Sie zum Orange Rhino, das selbst dann ruhig, liebevoll und bestimmt bleibt, wenn die Kinder den Bogen mal wieder mehr als überspannt haben.

Comprising selections from "Balancing Act," the weekly column from Chicago Tribune lifestyle writer Heidi Stevens, this book is a colorful look at contemporary parenting and the joys and challenges that accompany being a worker, parent, partner, and individual. Through poignant professional interviews and endearing personal stories, Stevens offers advice on juggling life and work in a not-always obliging world. Her experience as a mother of two small children and her journey from divorce to remarriage inform her lighthearted yet thoughtful tone in this deeply personal collection. The columns reflect on the challenges today's working parents face, and offer advice on how to find pleasure in daily tasks, focus your energy, and seek joy in small moments. Balancing Act empathizes with parents during those moments of feeling adrift without a guide. It delivers sage advice through Stevens’s journalistic diligence, asking experts and investigating both sides of a story. What sets this book apart most is the warm, open writing style that makes Stevens one of the Chicago Tribune’s most popular columnists. Readers can reflect on the ups and downs of being a parent, professional, and individual, while taking Balancing Act’s central theme to heart by learning to worry less and enjoy more.

There's no doubt that technology has overrun our lives. Over the past few decades, the world has embraced "progress" and we're living with the resultant clicking, beeping, anxiety-inducing frenzy. But a creative backlash is gathering steam, helping us cope with the avalanche of data that threatens to overwhelm us daily through our computers, tablets, and smartphones. The Joy of Missing Out considers the technologically focused life, with its impacts on our children, relationships, communities, health, work, and more, and suggests opportunities for those of us longing to cultivate a richer on- and off-line existence. By examining the connected world through the lens of her own internet fast, Christina Crook creates a convincing case for increasing intentionality in our day-to-day lives. Using historical data, typewritten letters, chapter challenges, and personal accounts, she invites us to explore a new way of living, beyond our steady state of distracted connectedness. Most of us can't throw away our smartphone or cut ourselves off from the internet. But we can all rethink our relationship with the digital world, discovering new ways of introducing balance and discipline to the role of technology in our lives. This book is a must-read for anyone wishing to rediscover quietness of mind and seeking a sense of peace amidst the cacophony of the modern world. Christina Crook is a wordsmith and communications professional and instigator of the project Letters from a Luddite, which chronicled her thirty-one day internet fast and fueled her passion for exploring the intersection of technology, relationships, and joy.

Selbst der Tod hat ein Herz ... Molching bei München. Hans und Rosa Hubermann nehmen die kleine Liesel Meminger bei sich auf – für eine bescheidene Beihilfe, die ihnen die ersten Kriegsjahre kaum erträglicher macht. Für Liesel jedoch bricht eine Zeit voller Hoffnung, voll schieren Glücks an – in dem Augenblick, als sie zu stehlen beginnt. Anfangs ist es nur ein Buch, das im Schnee liegen geblieben ist. Dann eines, das sie aus dem Feuer rettet. Dann Äpfel, Kartoffeln und Zwiebeln. Das Herz von Rudi. Die Herzen von Hans und Rosa Hubermann. Das Herz von Max. Und das des Todes. Denn selbst der Tod hat ein Herz. „Die Bücherdiebin“ ist eine Liebesgeschichte, eine Hommage an Bücher und Worte und eine Erinnerung an die Macht der Sprache, die im Roman von Markus Zusak viele Facetten zeigt: den lakonisch-distanzierten Ton des Erzählers, Poesie und Zuversicht – und die reduzierte Sprache der Nazipropaganda.

Jeannette Walls ist ein glückliches Kind: Sie hat einen Vater, der mit ihr auf Dämonenjagd geht, ihr die Physik erklärt und die Sterne vom Himmel holt. Da nimmt sie gerne in Kauf, immer mal wieder mit leerem Bauch ins Bett zu gehen, ihre egomanische Künstlermutter zu ertragen oder in Nacht-und-Nebel-Aktionen den Wohnort zu wechseln. Mit den Jahren allerdings werden die sozialen Verhältnisse schlimmer, die Sprüche des Vaters schaler und das Lügengebäude der Eltern so zerbrechlich wie das Schloss aus Glas, das der Vater jahrelang zu bauen versprochen hatte.
