60,000 THOUGHTS A DAY - 5 quick ways to cancel out 'white noise'!

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Tuesday, August 31, 2010, In : Meditation & Mindfulness 
Ever heard of 'white noise'?  It's what I call the loud fuzz of incessant chatter that kicks off in your brain the minute you sit down to get some head space. It’s as if you are surrounded by a thousand TVs all tuned in to different channels blaring at you all at once about crazy stuff at a million kilometres an hour. Let me demonstrate:

We Learn By Our Mistakes, Or Do We?!

Excuse me, I just 'blogged'!

Kristy Lee Rackham Full time parent, part-time nursing student, writer, key-note speaker, facilitator, entrepreneur... I subscribe to the belief that if you're clever with your time and where you put your energy, you CAN have the cake and eat it too! Still working on what flavour to make the cake though! My passion is creating... creating anything, in any form makes me happy! My goal is to lead my children (and others!) by example... its a big task and Im learning so much about myself through their eyes. As they grow, so do I! Most importantly, I want to show them that if you have a dream, you can achieve it with a bit of dedication, discipline, guts and a belief that anything is possible. So I guess that I want to teach them to create as well... create their own destiny! Email me at, I'd love to hear from you.
