Publisher's Summary

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 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.

    "This book is excellent, seriously."

    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!

    I love AUDIBLE! I never get mad at traffic jams and can listen to many different books, despite my short time.

    "10 Mindful Minutes"

    I didn't pay attention when I bought this book. When I understood that was written by the actress Goldie Hawn I thought I wouldn't be interested. But I gave it a try and it surprised me. A good book, well based in researches and with many good doctors/ psychologists as feed backers.

    "Very disappointing."
    What disappointed you about 10 Mindful Minutes?

    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!


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    Sadly, no. I may even request money back.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 10 Mindful Minutes?

    Change the preachy tone.
