RAISING THE BAR

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Monday, May 30, 2011, In : Meditation & Mindfulness 

A friend sent me this little blog piece called Seth's Blog today - I thought given that exams are only a week or so away, this might be pertinent for us all.

I am constantly assessing and reassessing the type of person I am, and want to be moving forward in life.  I try where possible to give my best, to work efficiently, but always strive for continual improvement.  These days, my goal is to excel whilst creating a personally sustainable life.  Sometimes this means raising the bar, other days...

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:

I need to staple my assignment, NOW!
This meditation stuff doesn’t work.
I really don’t want to be doing this right now, it’s such a beautiful da...

7 Simple Ways to Introduce Meditation Into Your Busy Life RIGHT NOW!

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Wednesday, July 14, 2010, In : Meditation & Mindfulness 

Meditation also comes in many forms during your everyday life.  Anything that maintains 100% of your awareness and focus and develops your innate creativity can be a form of meditation.  You don’t have to sit for hours and hours forcing your brain to shut down.  In fact, anything that you have to force takes you out of the Soul-Mind head space and back into worrying about all those things you have to do...

SOUL SICKNESS: finding a way out of the dark

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Saturday, July 3, 2010, In : Meditation & Mindfulness 

By Kristy Lee Rackham

Most of us are aware that one of the core components of a happy and fulfilled life is positive self esteem/self worth.  Easier said than done? Definitely!  It’s all very well to know that we need to have a strong sense of respect for our unique selves and who we are. However, the real issue is HOW to achieve and maintain this state, particularly in the face of low self esteem/worth, emotional trauma and generalised depression, collectively termed here as...

Reaction vs Response: The Choice is Yours (amended)

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Sunday, June 27, 2010, In : Meditation & Mindfulness 

This post was amended after further thought whilst I was having a shower this evening, and comment by a reader on facebook! I felt the post needed more clarification and perhaps a few references to confirm my take on the subject!  So, read on...!

Reaction vs Response: The Choice is Yours!

You'd be forgiven for thinking that a 'reaction'...

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Sunday, June 6, 2010, In : Meditation & Mindfulness 

 

Meditation regulates blood pressure, slows breathing and increases oxygen uptake, alleviates physical pain, stress and tension, calms the mind and opens doors to worlds of peace, relaxation and happiness that will lead to a more successful, less stressful life.  Sounds good right!

So what is meditation really? In recent years meditation has been scientifically proven to have marked positive physical and mental effects. Put simply, Meditation is a practical tool to train the brain and bo...

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! 

Be well

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 headspacebook@gmail.com, I'd love to hear from you.
