Product Description


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 (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)

10 [Mindful] Minutes isn't your run of the mill self-help book, but rather the product of the Hawn Foundation's collaboration with leading educators and researchers behind the evidence-based MindUP program . . . Hawn has graciously condensed the knowledge, research and expertise into roughly 200 pages for you - your child's best teacher (Huffington Post)

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. (Dan Buettner, New York TIMES bestselling author of The Blue Zones AND Thrive)

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 (Dr Kimberly Schonert-Reichl)

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. (Greg Hicks, bestselling co-author of How We Choose to Be Happy AND Happiness & HEALTH)

All adults will find something of value in this insightful book; but for parents, grandparents, teachers and carers, this is essential reading, by sharing this knowledge with the children you care for, you can effectively change their lives! Highly Recommended! (Hot Brands, Cool Places Magazine)

4.0 out of 5 stars Really interesting. 17 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book after seeing Goldie Hawn on the One Show talking about it. It sounded fascinating stuff. The book arrived quickly and I am now about a third of the way through it. It is a really interesting book. It explains about what prompted Ms Hawn to start her foundation and about the basics of how the brain works and why we do certain things and react in certain ways.
I'm just getting to the nitty gritty of what the exercises are that you do each day. These are the bits I'm interested in and can then hopefully use with my children at school.
I would say this is a should read for any parent with small children and any teacher specifically Primary school teachers like myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 10 Mar 2012
This book holds some excellent information on parenting, after reading this book I have passed it down to some friends of mine and it has really helped them and their family through some difficult times. This book is exactly what it is says a way for a healthier and happier life!! Another great book that is just as helpful and well written that I highly recommend is Developing Children's Emotional Intelligence (Continuum Education)
