Sep 24, Brandice rated it liked it. For the most part, I liked Pretty Happy , which focuses on how you feel, more so than what you eat, although it'd be a blatant lie to say one does not impact the other. The book focuses on Four Pillars: Cultivate an Intuitive Relationship with Your Body 2.
Eat Well 3. Awaken Your Body 4. The Miracle For the most part, I liked Pretty Happy , which focuses on how you feel, more so than what you eat, although it'd be a blatant lie to say one does not impact the other.
The Miracle of Mindfulness I personally derived the most from the section on Mindfulness, which interested me the most as I can be impatient, and fidgety, and admittedly, have a hard time carving out time to be present and still. It was an interesting read and I think everyone can gain at least something from it. View all 6 comments. Mar 14, Kristy rated it it was ok Shelves: I'm a fan of Kate Hudson but this was a little painful to get through.
I gave it a 2 star because I could definitely feel the positive energy radiating from the book and overall I like the message. But, it was repetitive and lacked substance. View 2 comments. Feb 19, Tan Markovic rated it did not like it Shelves: I love Kate Hudson and was so excited to dive into this audiobook but oh my goodness this was repetitive and basically nothing I didn't already know.
If you want a book that states the bloody obvious about fitness and diet, go for this. Oct 14, Joy rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it for the good info she offers regarding health, fitness and meditation.
I like her ideas and the book is fun and interesting. It would have been better if I owned a copy so I could write in it and refer back to her suggestions.

Ayurveda is a plant-based diet and has been for 5, years. Don't waste your time. Feb 22, Amanda rated it really liked it. Anyway, the book did not disappoint!
Instead, she explains how she found balance and peace in her own life and with her body through various methods and provides a wealth of resources for readers to find their own paths to health and happiness along the way.
For example, I was blown away by her introduction to ayurveda, which I had never heard of but really resonated with me. After the quizzes in the book to find out which ayurvedic dosha type I was, it hit the nail right on the head, and I was able to find some great information about ways to improve my own health and wellness because of my own individual stress levels, habits, personality traits, etc.
Kate, if possible, your book made me love you even more! Mar 08, Brittany rated it liked it Shelves: Mar 12, Amy Allen rated it really liked it Shelves: I love Kate Hudson and the fact that she narrated this book. It's certainly not a fix it or tell all book about how to look like her or be her. It's not even really new information. She shares tools and wisdom of what she's learned over the years that have helped her and encourages listeners to use the information that works for them.
To find ways to love themselves. To be good to your body. Love your body. I'm already fairly health conscious, but this gave me new things to think about. Meditati I love Kate Hudson and the fact that she narrated this book. Meditation isn't something I do, but might try because of this.
If it can bring calm to my day, why not?! This is a good listen for anyone at any stage of their life and health goals. Plug in and go for a walk or while doing dishes and pretend she's your BFF. It's fun. Feb 17, Brindi Michele rated it liked it Shelves: I really liked this because it wasn't a celebrity tell-all nor full of complaints about body type or full of suggestions on how to become "perfect" in Hollywood's eyes. She mentions Ayurvedic practices, which I'm a huge fan of, with accompanying tests to figure out stress levels and other body insights.
It read like a magazine, yet, it was quite repetitive. I know Kate Hudson talks about not shoving her plan down your thr I really liked this because it wasn't a celebrity tell-all nor full of complaints about body type or full of suggestions on how to become "perfect" in Hollywood's eyes. I know Kate Hudson talks about not shoving her plan down your throat or telling you what to do, but let's face it, we're all looking for a starter guide when we pick up these health books.
Feb 09, Sabrina rated it it was amazing. Such an amazing read. As someone who values spirituality, mindfulness, and health, but doesn't always follow the rules, this is a breath of fresh air and exactly what I needed. So much goodness, I can not say enough about this book. Great job Kate, and thank you!! Dec 18, Yuliya Yurchuk rated it liked it. Jan 04, Katie rated it it was ok. Couldn't help but get serious "Mommy Blogger" vibes from this entire book. Riddled with pseudo-science, the author never lingers on any one topic too long.
She often cites websites, apps, and holistic practitioners. You'll read a lot of shallow information on cleanses, avoiding all chemicals, and fad nutritional advice. While the introspective journaling and meditation chapters were pretty okay, they still don't make this book worthwhile for me. Skip it, read something from a certified professio Couldn't help but get serious "Mommy Blogger" vibes from this entire book. Skip it, read something from a certified professional. Jun 22, Mira rated it it was ok Shelves: I'm giving this book 2 stars, and I'm being kind.
The thing is: I appreciate Kate Hudson's effort to make a positive impact. The problem is not in her message, it's that her approach is extremely shallow. As someone who has benefited from Ayurveda, I'm happy to see she is promoting it. However, anyone with any interest in it should get their information elsewhere.
Kate's body-type questionnaires aren't detailed enough, her idea of an Ayurvedic cleanse is insufficient, and her recommendation of a I'm giving this book 2 stars, and I'm being kind. Kate's body-type questionnaires aren't detailed enough, her idea of an Ayurvedic cleanse is insufficient, and her recommendation of a lemon-ginger "detox" tea is not suitable for Pitta types.
It's nice to see someone in the public eye trying to promote a positive message, but Kate Hudson is someone with the resources to seek out the best help in the world. She could have researched and interviewed top health experts and relayed some serious and useful information on physical and mental well-being. Instead, she chose to write this book much like I'd imagine a teenage girl would complete a school project on How To Make A Positive Impact.
Great effort! View all 3 comments. Feb 28, Rachael rated it did not like it. I read some of this, and ended up skimming the rest. I had high hopes for this book, but it just wasn't anything I haven't read before. It seemed to be a book I've read before that has exercise tips, food tips, etc.
Perhaps if she had written about more personal details from her own life, and how it really applies to what she was writing about, it would have felt more personal. Reading it felt like she or her co-author-which always makes I read some of this, and ended up skimming the rest. Reading it felt like she or her co-author-which always makes me wonder how much the celebrity actually wrote was trying to force a personal connection to the reader.
At least that's how it felt to me.
The book also had some questionnaires to take inside the book, and had a section for a 'drawing board' to record your feeling of what you ate, or how you feel during the day, which I just think was a little too I'm not sure. Just not for me. Overall I was disappointed. I think Kate Hudson's overall message for this book is good, it just could have been more than it is.
Apr 21, Kristinita rated it it was amazing Shelves: I absolutely loved this book. A bookclub I'm a part of chose it, and I'm so glad they did because I hadn't heard about it before. This book really spoke to me, and there's aspects of it which I plan to use daily, like the Drawing Board.
This book was the perfect book for me to read at this time in my life, and I'm so happy I found it. That book was a bit too scientific for me — which is fine, I love science — I just wanted I absolutely loved this book.
That book was a bit too scientific for me — which is fine, I love science — I just wanted it to be more personal and something I could identify with. I'd recommend this book to any woman who is wanting to be pretty happy in life. Oct 18, Rachel Fortin rated it it was amazing. Such a simple yet inspiring self help book.
Feb 29, Lauren Berg rated it liked it. There was a bit of pseudoscience bullshit in here, but I generally enjoyed it. It was engaging and interactive, and I learned some new ways to balance exercise and clean eating in my life. I received a free paperback copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I would say the book has little to no value for those seeking factual material on health and wellness.
The information presented in this book is unscientific, without citations or support for its claims, though it presents itself as facts. She is a proponent of I received a free paperback copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. She is a proponent of Ayurvedic medicine, which is at best pseudoscience and at worst harmful. Ayurvedic medicine is based on the idea that there are only three types of people, identified based not just on their looks, but also on their temperament, thought processes, and dietary needs.
This is ludicrous to anyone who thinks critically about these claims with respect to our current diverse world population of 7. She also suggests such paying such attention to the food you eat that it perhaps approaches disordered eating from my perspective. Even if you believe the doubtful claims of Ayurvedic medicine, this is a tertiary source, so I would seek out other books to learn what the philosophy is all about, rather than just going for her diluted take on it.
Finally, while I understand the lack of diversity in photographs all are of Kate herself , I found the extreme lack of diversity in the illustrations troubling.
All depicted slim white women. I found this to be quite exclusionary and off-putting. Additionally, her tips for a healthy life were based on a luxurious lifestyle full of free time that is clearly impractical for the daily reality of many women.
Overall, cannot recommend this book in any way. Jan 23, Erin rated it it was ok. Ha ha, just kidding about the padded rating.
Not even providing the snark value I like in my "Starlet Giving Life Advice" books, this was just boring boring boring. Seriously though, listening at the 1.
The Apple podcast app should take a note. I'm a fast talker and a fast listener, and while 1. Enter 1. Kate Hudson, your book isn't even the star of its own review. Started only because I needed an audio book to listen to driving home and Hoopla put it under "similar to what you've just read" after I read Carrie Fisher's wishful drinking - but this is not a celebrity memoir in the slightest. Kept listening only because I have this personal inability to put a book aside after i've started it, even if I'm really disliking it.
Another reason I decided to write this book was out of frustration.
How I lost all that baby weight after my first son, Ryder, was born. How I seem to effortlessly lose ten pounds in preparation for a new film role. How I look and seem so healthy. It takes time and discipline. My frustration comes from the fact that learning to take care of yourself will never be captured in a sound bite, just as how I live my life could never be captured in a four-minute interview.
One of the main ideas I came to is that being body smart is an ongoing process, not a diet or a program that begins one day and ends twenty-one days later. Just like yours are, my body and mind are always changing, which means that taking care of myself requires that I tune in regularly, ready to make small adjustments to fit the changes.
This idea of constant change was a huge revelation for me! I want this book to be a map for you to figure out how to take good care of yourself—mind and body. I had to learn how to do so over time, and I continue to learn—each and every day. Again, this is a process because my body is constantly changing—so is yours. And when I learned how to accept that it will always be like this, I relaxed. Our bodies do not stand still for time. Copyright c by Kate Hudson.
