»Dafür haben wir jetzt keine Zeit«, war lange der Satz, den die Töchter von Rachel Macy Stafford am häufigsten von ihrer Mutter hörten. Die junge Frau verlor sich geradezu in ihrem hektischen Alltag, während sie versuchte, allen Ansprüchen gerecht zu werden.

Rachel Macy Stafford zog daraufhin die Reißleine und beschloss, ihr Leben zu ändern. Sie entwickelte ein Programm für mehr Achtsamkeit und Gelassenheit und lernte so auch selbst, endlich wieder bewusst Zeit mit ihrer Familie zu verbringen.
