Now Moments are the Music of Life - Joshua Bell Experiment

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Tuesday, May 18, 2010, In : Meditation & Mindfulness 

I am sure most of you have seen the exerp below, but I just felt it was a good reminder to take a moment to BE in the moment... how many times do we rush through life always looking to the future instead of enjoying the beautiful moments we have right now!  At the end of the day, all we have is now... yesterday is gone, tomorrow is never going to be here!  Stop and let the music of life delight you!

Mindfulness Meditation a Solution to Information Overload

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Monday, May 17, 2010, In : Study Tips & Info 

I am frequently reminded how important it is to take time out to do something just for ME.  I'm discovering it is not only important to make some time and space in life that doesnt incorporate study, work, kids, washing the dishes or mowing lawns, but tthat perhaps it is MORE imperative that I am actually ALONE for that period of time that I set aside.

I have an exam Friday and am flat out using the techniques in the book to get myself across the line - as I type I have a 2.5 year old hanging off my arm, and my one year old raiding the kitchen draws!  If ever I needed "head Space' it is now!  So to keep myself on the leve, I am using the little quick de-stress technique below... give it a go!

Try this: Remember to Breathe...Stop what you are doing right now... ignore everything for the count of four, deep, long, slow breathes.  Focus entirel...

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.
