From the bestselling author, Academy Award-winning actress and founder of the Hawn Foundation, a practical guide for parents to help children cope with stress, improve concentration and lead happier lives.


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 programs 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

A book for: Parents of children of all ages. And for teachers.

Highlights/Quotes

"Perhaps the most important thing optimism and savoring happiness can do is prevent depression because it exercises areas of our brains that make us less likely to get depressed, even when facing hard times...Whenever children feel pessimisticv, especially in their teens, they regard any negative comments made by others as evidence of their worthlessness rather than just someone else's opinion." "According to UNICEF, the children of the United States are the second least happy children in the world after the United Kingdom, a fact that should shake every one of us to the core. How can it be that two of the most affluent countries in the world should have such a dismal record when it comes to being happy?"
