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!
In almost every interview she gives, Kate Hudson is asked the same questions: What do you eat? How do you stay so fit? What workout do you do? What's your secret? Well, the secret is that the sound bites the media loves so much don't tell the story, and the steps you need to take to have a healthy, vibrant, and happy life can't be captured in a short interview. The key to living well and healthy is to plug in to what your body needs, understanding that one size does not fit all all the time and being truly honest with yourself about your goals and desires.
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 unrealistic standards of perfection and giving up when she falls short. Focusing on the Four Pillars of Health to enhance well-being, Pretty Happy shows the benefits of:
Cultivating an intuitive relationship with your body
Awakening your body through movement
The miracle of mindfulness
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.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Information to basic if you are health concious
Would you try another book from Kate Hudson and/or Kate Hudson?
What do you think your next listen will be?
Did Pretty Happy inspire you to do anything?
Any additional comments?
This book was somewhat enjoyable to listen to, but if you are not just getting interested in health and wellness, it will probably be too basic. She lightly touches on a variety of things such as food, meditation and mindfulness, and excercise. While I agree with most of her opinions whole heartedly, it was just such basic info that I didn't get too much out of it (being an active, healthy eater, already health consious individual). If you really want to learn about food and how it effects your body, I would recommend Cameron Diaz's The Body Book. If you really want to learn about mindfulness and meditation? plenty of other much more in depth books. Try 10 Percent Happier. I did enjoy the section on Doshas as I did not know much about that, and I did think her performance was great. The PDF is somewhat helpful, although I feel like it was disjointed and not proof read enough, the results it gives you for the stress quiz CAN NOT be right.

Great Read for the subject Matter
what i loved about this book is that Kate gave HER version of well being. It's so refreshing to actually get insight from a person whom you can tell it actually worked for them. i gave her top stars for delivering exactly what she promises.
As from a content point of view? again its information which we already know but here its from a celebrity we so well love.
