Driven by her lifelong interest in the practice of mindfulness and her commitment to the welfare of children everywhere, Goldie Hawn established the Hawn Foundation to support research into developing ways of helping children become healthy and eager learners who can reach their full potential. The program developed by her foundation, MindUP, now used by educators around the world, teaches children how their minds work and how their thoughts and feelings affect their behavior. It gives them the social and emotional tools to help them deal with stress and negative feelings, calm their minds, remain focused, develop compassion and empathy for others - and, ultimately, be happy.
As practical as it is inspiring, 10 Mindful Minutes embodies the essence of the incredible success of the MindUP program with its simple techniques like mindful breathing, sensing, and thinking. In easy-to-follow steps, it shows parents and children alike how to focus on feelings of gratitude, kindness, and optimism that will improve interpersonal relationships, increase performance through better concentration, and lead to emotionally healthy and happy lives.
Teaching Our Children to Help Themselves Be Happy: Across the country, the revolutionary MindUP program, which was developed under the auspices of the Hawn Foundation, is teaching children vital social and emotional skills, empowering them to manage and reduce their own stress - and helping them be happy. Now, for the first time, its secrets are being shared with all parents and children in 10 Mindful Minutes.

I love, love this audible. I have and will continue to recommend this audiobook. The content is wonderful and Goldie Hawn is brilliant in her delivery. My hope would be that we can get this program in to our schools. Thank you Goldie for putting your heart into such a wonderful program.
I sell advertising. My job is to persuade others. I love learning how my mind works so that I can grasp what really motivates me. I also enjoy learning about people who may be very different than me.
I used to laugh at Goldie Hawn but I'm not laughing now. Who knew she was such an intellectual? I've read more books on mindfulness and neuroscience than I can count, very few of them are as good as this one. Thanks Goldie!
It has helpful content
Yes, it is better to read this kind of books so you can skip passed all the parts that do not interest you.
I love Goldie Hawn and always read that she was also - smart. I gave this a try, and couldn't suffer through it. I admire her acting. Really, she walked in to Hollywood and had it handed to her. For me, this was all just mundane preaching from an out of touch Hollywood star. I coudn't bear to listen to ole Goldie. Pass!
Sadly, no. I may even request money back.
Change the preachy tone.
