Giving our children – and ourselves – the social and emotional skills to reduce stress and anxiety for healthier, happier lives.
Our children are overwhelmed, stressed and overstimulated. The need for solutions that simultaneously promote their social and emotional skills, mental health and academic performance is more critical that ever. Driven by Academy Award-winning actress Goldie Hawn’s lifelong interest in the practice of mindfulness and her commitment to the welfare of children, the Hawn Foundation has developed the MindUP programme to help children reach their full potential. 10 Mindful Minutes shares the secrets of this groundbreaking programme.
Through simple techniques such as mindful breathing, sensing and thinking, it shows parents and children alike how to focus on feelings of gratitude, kindness and optimism that will improve relationships, increase performance through better concentration, and lead to emotionally healthy and happy lives.
