In her new book, Pretty Happy, Kate Hudson shares her insights to help motivate every woman to become healthy, strong, and beautiful from the inside out in a new stunning, full color illustrated lifestyle guide.
I didn’t just wake up one day understanding how to take care of myself. I had to learn how to do so over time, and I continue to learn—each and every day. This is a process, and my body is constantly changing. So is yours. And when I learned how to accept that I will always be like this, I relaxed. Our bodies do not stand still for time. When you understand yourself and connect to how you can become body smart, you realize pretty quickly that the perfect, the ideal is not the goal. Instead, the goal is feeling good in your body. That’s what leads to confidence, to feeling and looking fit, and being pretty happy. Doesn’t that sound great? I think so!
„Kate Hudson’s Pretty Happy is a smart, insightful and realistic primer for making healthy habits part of your everyday life. I met Kate in person, and judging by my impression of her, she must be doing things right. From exercise to mindfulness to knowing what your body really needs to thrive, she pushes you to throw away your ideas around perfection and find your own Pretty Happy.”
Alejandro Junger, New York Times bestselling author of Clean, Clean Gut, and Clean Eats
In seemingly every interview, Kate Hudson is asked the same questions: What is your secret? How do you stay so fit? What is your workout? What diet plan do you follow? And while the media loves a sound bite, the reality is that the steps you need to take to have a healthy, vibrant, and happy life can’t be captured in a 30-second clip or a short interview. Pretty Happy is her answer to those questions.
Like everyone else, Kate is constantly on the move, with a life full of work, family, responsibilities, and relationships. In Pretty Happy, Kate shows how she honors her relationship with herself through exercise, making the right choices about what she eats, and constantly going back to the drawing board and starting fresh, instead of holding herself to an unrealistic standard of perfection and giving up when she falls short.
Focusing on the Four Pillars of Health to enhance her well-being, Pretty Happy shows the benefits of:
- Cultivating an Intuitive Relationship With Your Body. Determine your body type, focus on the areas that cause you pain, physical or otherwise, and decide what your goals are for putting your health first.
- Eating Well. Learn how Kate has determined her body’s food needs, and what you can do to restore your own body’s nutritional balance.
- Awakening Your Body through movement. Learn the importance of movement and the power of changing the kind of movement you do to reinvigorate yourself on a regular basis. Discover your exercise type.
- The Miracle of Mindfullness. Tying it all together, Kate shares how meditation and mindfulness have changed her life in myriad ways, making her happier, less susceptible to stress, and more “in the moment” in every way.
Full of questionnaires to help you assess your Body Type and your stress levels, advice about cleanses and keeping your diet and body balanced, and plenty of interactive Drawing Board exercises, Pretty Happy is a beautiful, insightful, and personal look at health from the inside out, an authentic plan for an authentic life from a woman who truly lives what she speaks.
“Though it may seem like sporting that signature winning smile is her natural state of being, Kate Hudson’s path to happiness is an active one. She refuses to wait for happy to happen. Instead, Pretty Happy details all the ways she makes it a priority every day. Honoring our bodies with clean eating and smart cleansing, our minds with meditation, our purpose with authenticity, and our fun with spontaneity, playfulness and pole dancing – yes! – this is a hands-on approach to owning our potential. And if you’ve ever found yourself wondering how she maintains that famous bod, Kate is spilling the beans on that, too in her trademark best friend-who’s-been-there style – lucky us!”
