My Happy Mind

My Happy Mind

Help your child build life-long confidence and resilience


When Laura Earnshaw found out her son was struggling with anxiety at school, she was shocked to discover there was no support available for him. As a leading global HR executive specializing in helping people thrive, she decided to take matters into her own hands and went on to create myHappymind, now an award-winning curriculum used in hundreds of nurseries and primary schools across the UK, that builds resilience, self-esteem and ultimately happiness in children.

My Happy Mind will reveal, for the first time, all the science-backed secrets used in this curriculum to empower and educate parents – whether your child is struggling already or you want to future proof their mental health. Packed with inspiring stories and practical activities, you’ll find out:

-The five ingredients to building resilient, balanced and happy minds
-What a growth mindset is – and how to encourage this in your child
-The power of dreaming and the importance of setting goals
-How to teach your child to self-soothe when they feel stressed
And much more!

The message of this book is very simple: give today’s children the skills to thrive in tomorrow’s world.
