Banyen's Description: 

“Goldie Hawn embodies delight and joy, and 10 Mindful Minutes radiates these. Her book 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

The revolutionary MindUP program, which was developed by the Hawn Foundation, established by Goldie Hawn, is teaching children vital social and emotional skills. By understanding how their brains work, children discover where their emotions come from and become more self-aware. Kids learn to appreciate the sensory aspects of their lives and to value the positive effects of mindfulness, compassion, and kindness. This, in turn, empowers them to manage and reduce their own stress—and helps them be happy.

Those who have seen the remarkable effects of this program have been eager to learn how to implement it in their own homes and use its practices for themselves, too. Now 10 Mindful Minutes offers easy-to-grasp insights from current behavioral, psychological, and neurological studies to show how our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors—including our ability to focus, manage tress, and learn—are all exquisitely interconnected.

Hawn not only shares her own heartfelt approach to the challenges of parenting and her mission to help children everywhere but also presents simple and practical ways to develop mindfulness in children and parents alike.
