About the book

'This is a remarkable book . . . Read it and use it: you may find you are doing nothing less than giving back to your children their childhood, while they still have the chance to live it' Mark Williams, Director, University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre and author of Mindfulness: Finding peace in a frantic world

'10 Mindful Minutes can help any adult - parent, grandparent, teacher - make double use of their moments with the children they love and have a terrific time while helping shape that child's brain for a lifetime of resilience and happiness' Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

Bestselling author Goldie Hawn offers parents a practical guide for helping their children to learn better and live more happily. Based on the MindUP programme, supported by the Hawn Foundation, 10 Mindful Minutes outlines short, practical exercises for parents and children - taking less than 10 minutes - to help young children and teenagers reduce stress and anxiety, improve concentration and academic performance, effectively manage emotions and behaviour, develop greater empathy for others and the world, and be more optimistic and happy. Representing the culmination of years of research and programmes developed by the Hawn Foundation currently being used by schools internationally, this book will help children and parents develop mindfulness which has been proven to promote more effective learning and happier lives.

Goldie Hawn has given us a beautiful guide to one of our most important roles - raising healthy, joyful, and resilient children. Rooted in scientific research and chock full of practical tools and techniques, 10 Mindful Minutes will forever change the way you parent, and it'll change how you live your own life, too>
I saw how quickly the kids-and then the teachers-bought into the (MindUP) program and practices. The kids just got it right away, and seemed hungry for something that would help them manage the stresses in their life. . . . In my twenty years of measuring social-emotional learning quotients, I've never seen a program that works as well as this one>
Goldie Hawn is arguably the most influential happiness expert of our time. She not only has achieved true happiness in her life but radiates it in her family and through the work of her foundation. Now, 10 Mindful Minutes offers a guide for the rest of us. This book artfully blends the latest science and quick, easy how-to advice with a rare glimpse into the epiphanies that led to Goldie's happiness work. It's an engaging must-read for every parent interested in raising a focused, balanced and happy child>
This is a remarkable book. It is full of wisdom for us all - parents and other care-givers - inviting us to taste mindfulness for ourselves. Here is chance not to be missed: to learn from the inside how mindfulness can help us to see clearly and respond wisely to the emotional and developmental needs of our children. Read it and use it: you may find you are doing nothing less than giving back to your children their childhood, while they still have the chance to live it>
... to help you towards a calmer, happier frame of mind.
