Pretty Happy: Book Review
Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways to Love Your Body
Author: Kate Hudson
5 out of 5 stars
Synopsis from Goodreads:
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 into 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 her well-being, Pretty Happy shows the benefits of:
Cultivating an Intuitive Relationship With Your Body Eating Well Awakening Your Body through movement The Miracle of Mindfullness
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.
A blurb from Kate:
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!
This book by Kate Hudson has absolutely stunning photographs and the book is laid out so nice.
This book is inspiring, interactive and motivating.
I really enjoyed the incorporation of of the drawing board, which if you read the book, you will know what I’m talking about. I also enjoyed that the book isn’t just Kate Hudson telling you what to do and how to change, but she asks questions that really make you think about your personal health journey.
This is a book that I will continue to use on my journey to a healthier lifestyle.
If you are looking for a book that encourages you to learn more about a healthier lifestyle, then I 100% recommend this book for you!!
Another thing that I enjoyed about this book is that it has little quizzes that help you determine your body type, your stress level, and if you are addicted to sugar, to name a few.
Thanks so much for stopping by and reading this book review!
