Publisher's Summary

We all yearn to look back to find we lived a life of significance. But is it even possible anymore? Considering the amount of distraction and pressure that exists in society today, living a fulfilling life may seem like an unachievable dream. But it is not - not with the nine habits outlined in this book. New York Times best-selling author and widely known blogger Rachel Macy Stafford reveals nine habits that help you focus on investing in the most significant parts of your life. As your hands, heart, and eyes become open, you will experience a new sense of urgency - an urgency to live, love, dream, connect, create, forgive, and flourish despite the distractions of our culture. By following each daily Hands Free Declaration, you will be inspired to adopt mindful daily practices and new thought processes that will help you:

Make meaningful, lasting human connections despite the busyness of everyday life.
Live in the now despite that inner nudge pushing you out of the moment toward perfection and productivity.
Protect your most sacred relationships as well as your values, beliefs, health, and happiness despite the latent dangers of technology and social media.
Pursue the passions of your heart without sacrificing your job or your daily responsibilities.
Evaluate your daily choices to insure you are investing in a life that matters to you.

With a Hands Free Life perspective, you will have the power to look back and see you didn't just manage life; you actually lived it - and lived it well.

A tired message in a boring package

First, the narrator of this book is one of the worst I've ever heard. She reads like she's performing in a middle school production of "Annie."

As for the book itself, I was very disappointed. I'm getting really tired of the message of "forget the dishes and just play with your kids!" While there may be some women out there still seeking perfection, I think those choosing this book already have a practical attitude, and we DO play with our kids. But the dishes can't just be ignored, and neither can the other million things required to maintain minimum living standards. What we are looking for are answers for how to make that happen.

Instead, this author offers pretty useless advice about things that can't properly even be called "habits." And all of her advice is supported by nothing more than anecdotes from her own family. They're not even interesting anecdotes.

Honestly, the only good parts of this book were the title and subtitle, which are enticing but deceptive.

What would have made Hands Free Life better?

I found the narration was too animated for a non-fiction book. Also, there was little real content as far as help.

Has Hands Free Life turned you off from other books in this genre?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hands Free Life?

There were too many stories about the author and her children.
