Did you know that unless you're growing your own food on the top of a lush, untouched Andean pinnacle, or a thriving virgin delta somewhere, it is highly likely that you are not getting the vitamins and minerals that your body and brain need to operate at their optimal efficiency? Without wanting to scare the pants off you (or perhaps that's what it will take?!), the soils where most of us get our vegetables and fruits from the...

Don’t ignore this! 

Head Space book launch and art exhibition could have the answer to decreasing stress amongst parents, teachers and students, whilst improving class academic outcomes and harmony at home!

Peer reviewed research is now proving beyond a doubt that meditation and mindfulness can greatly reduce anxiety, stress and depression in students.  It has also been shown to improve memory, enhance brain and body function, and can actually make people smarter!  Kristy Rackham, author of ...

OMG ! Its finally here in my hot little hands - the very first copy of the very first print run of my very first book!! 

I was sooo nervous opening the package.  It was wrapped first in a post pac, then cardboard box, then bubble wrap, then paper and then about building the anticipation!!!   It was like being the only player in a game of pass the parcel and I'm the WINNER!!!

It looks fantastic!
Great new cover with Nicole's amazing artwork grabbing your attention from the moment...

We Learn By Our Mistakes, Or Do We?!

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Saturday, August 21, 2010, In : General 
I've been contemplating the idea of mistakes... we've been told by those who are apparently wiser and more worldly that 'we learn by our mistakes'.  However, it strikes me, as I look at my beautiful children while they sleep, that perhaps there is NO SUCH THING AS A MISTAKE.

To believe that we learn by a mistake is to assume that we have done something wrong in the first place, that our choices and actions have resulted in a negative consequence.  My thoughts arise from the fact that I did not...

Paperback Delays

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Tuesday, June 15, 2010, In : The Book 
Hi all... I hope some of you have not lost patience with me and have occasionally checked in to see what's happening with the paperback release.  I've had huge delays and interruptions which have been testing my patience, control issues and general state of head space!!!    Ttalk about practising what I preach!! 

There has got to be a reason, they say... who 'they' are I'm not entirely sure, but its the only thing that has kept me from losing the plot!  First my laptop died.  So I borrowed a ...

Posted by Kristy Rackham on Saturday, April 17, 2010, In : General 

Hi and welcome to 'Head Space - meditate your way to study success'.  Thanks for checking us out!  

I guess I want to start by saying that the great thing about this lovely book is that its not just for students at school or uni, it is great for 'students of life' too!    You just have to be interested in finding your own 'piece of peace' which will in turn reduce physical and mental stress and enhance your general wellbeing.

You may have read that the book will be released on 1 June 2010.  It ...

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.
